Andress collaborates with Hunt

Monday, August 2, 2021 – Ingrid Andress released "Wishful Drinking" with Sam Hunt today, her first collaboration since the release of her debut album, "Lady Like.

The official music video stars Andress and Hunt in a Nashville dive bar, featuring vintage-inspired fashion and '70s glam.

"I've never done anything like 'Wishful Drinking' before," Andress said. "I've always wanted to work with Sam and have been such a fan of his for a long time. I admire how he stays so true to himself and am so happy to have him join me for my first collaboration. The song was co-written by my friend JP Saxe, and it became this amazing sad bop, which we all know I love."

"I heard Ingrid's music a while back and knew right away she was a very talented singer and songwriter," said Hunt. "I met her not long ago at a Nashville Sports League kickball game, and I really enjoyed getting to know her a little bit. When the opportunity came along to be a part of this song with her, I was all in."

Filmed at the Flamingo Cocktail Club in Nashville, the "Wishful Drinking" video gives a nod to Andress' love for '70s cult classic films, while adding a modern twist of her own. In the video, Andress and Hunt perform the track from across the room before joining each other on an open mic stage.

Later this year, Andress will embark on her recently announced headlining U.S. and European The Feeling Things Tour. In between headlining shows, Andress is also set to rejoin Dan + Shay on The (Arena) Tour and make her Stagecoach debut at the 2022 festival.

The single "Hard To Forget" samples Webb Pierce's "There Stands The Glass," one of country music's best and most enduring drinking songs. It's ironic, though, how Hunt needed to sample an old country song in order to incorporate any hint of actual country music into his album. Interesting, yes, but it may make you reach back for a ...
CD review - Lady Like When it comes to the love department, life seemingly has not very kind at all to Ingrid Andress. That's more than apparent for Andress on her eight-song EP debut. She sure thinks a lot about love and its associated problems, but nothing quite seems to go right when it comes to affairs of the heart. What does go right, however, are the songs. Andress is unsure of a relationship's "blurred lines" ("Both") or just looking to rekindle a faded relationship and maybe ...
CD review - Montevallo It's no secret that the genre of country music has been growing and expanding in definition over the past several years, from the bombastic arena rocking fury of early Garth Brooks to more recent days and acts like Florida Georgia Line, further blurring the lines of country and other genres. Finding traditional country themes and vibes to merge along the rivers of hip-hop, R&B and pop, the picking is ripe for rising artists like Sam Hunt and his debut recording, "Montevallo. ...
