3x GRAMMY nominated singer-songwriter Ingrid Andress’ new single “Wishful Drinking” with Sam Hunt is top three most added at country radio today. Co-written by Andress, Jonny Price, JP Saxe, Lucky Daye and Rykeyz, the fan-favorite track has been a streaming success for Andress since its release, accruing over 49 million global streams and is currently sitting at #3 on Spotify’s Hot Country playlist. Upon release, the song launched at #8 on Spotify’s Top 10 USA Song Debuts Chart (all genre) along with praise from Rolling Stone and NYLON, V Magazine called it “a moving country-pop ballad that perfectly combines Andress’s soft pitch and Sam Hunt’s husky vocals.”
“‘Wishful Drinking’ started out as just a fun way to do my first collab with another artist I really admire so I was blown away by the support from the fans when it took on a life of its own,” says Andress. “I can’t wait to perform the song live for the first time with Sam on New Year’s Eve and start the year off with a little ‘Wishful Drinking.’”
Andress will be performing the heartbreak anthem with Sam Hunt on CBS’ five-hour star studded holiday special, “New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash.” With co-hosts Bobby Bones and Rachel Smith, the special will air across multiple time zones from 8-11 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.-1:30 a.m. ET/PT.
Next year, Andress will embark on Keith Urban’s recently announced 50-date North American “The Speed of Now World Tour.” Tickets are on sale now and can be found here.
