McBride & the Ride was founded in 1989 through the assistance of record producer Tony Brown. McBride & the Ride's first three albums - Burnin' Up the Road, the gold-certified Sacred Ground, and Hurry Sundown, released in 1991, 1992, and 1993, respectively - were all issued on MCA Records. These albums also produced several hits on the Billboard country charts, including the Top 5 hits Sacred Ground (their highest-peaking, at #2), "Going Out of My Mind", "Just One Night" and "Love on the Loose, Heart on the Run". The band eventually broke up although McBride, Thomas and Herndon reunited as McBride & the Ride in 2000, releasing Amarillo Sky on Dualtone Records in 2002 before splitting up again. McBride then joined the backing band for the duo Brooks & Dunn, and co-wrote several of the duo's singles, while Herndon self-released a solo album..
