Platinum-selling singer/songwriter Ingrid Andress has just received her very first GRAMMY Awards nominations, including a nod as the only country artist in this year’s Best New Artistcategory. The Warner Music Nashville/Atlantic Records breakout also received a Best Country Album nomination for her debut Lady Like, which has been hailed as “not just one of the year’s best debuts, but one of the year’s strongest albums” (Associated Press), as well as a Best Country Song nomination for her No. 1 debut single “More Hearts Than Mine.” With three total nominations, Andress is tied with Miranda Lambert as the most nominated country artist.
The 2020 CMA Awards New Artist and Song of the Year nominee recently “captivated viewers” (Billboard) when she took the award-show stage for a “memorable” performance of the GRAMMY-nominated single (WATCH HERE). An ACM and CMT Music Awards nominee as well, Andress took home the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s Nashville Songwriter Award for 2020 Song of the Year and swept every category she was nominated in at the MusicRow Awards, including Song of the Year, Breakthrough Artist-Writer of the Year and Breakthrough Artist of the Year.
Meanwhile her current single, “Lady Like” (LISTEN HERE), has already accumulated more than 40 million streams globally and is climbing the country radio charts now. Co-written by Andress alongside frequent collaborators Sam Ellis and Derrick Southerland, she’s performed the “slow-burning anthem of independence” (Rolling Stone) on Late Night with Seth Meyers and The 2020 CMT Music Awards, with HUFFPOST calling it “a powerful statement denouncing the pressure women face with regard to maintaining gender norms.”
In addition, the Colorado-native helped usher in the holiday season early this year with the release of her brand new song “Christmas Always Finds Me” (LISTEN HERE). Also co-written with Ellis and Southerland, the lyrics recall times in her life when the love and warmth of the holiday season seemed very far away. And yet as the string sections swells over the delicate piano melody, Andress finds reassurance in the fact that Christmas always seems to find her, “…even if I’m all alone / A million miles away from home / It shows up in a warm memory.”
The rising star has accumulated a career total of more than 400 million global streams and was the only solo-female-debut to crack Top 20 on the Country Airplay chart in 2019. She has also appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and TODAY, receiving overwhelming praise from some of the most-read publications across the country including Variety, The New York Times, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, Forbes, ELLE, American Songwriter, People, PAPER, Idolator, WWD, Flaunt, LADYGUNN, Wonderland., UPROXX and several more. Having started the year touring with Keith Urban on select dates, Andress’ 2020 tour dates also included shows with Dan + Shay, Tim McGraw and Thomas Rhett.
