Last week it was also announced that Andress had become the winningest artist at the 32nd Annual MusicRow Awards, sweeping every category she was nominated in. In addition to taking home the award for Breakthrough Artist-Writer of the Year and Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Andress won the coveted Song of the Yearaward for her debut single "More Hearts Than Mine,” which was also recently certified Platinum by the RIAA. The emotional ballad is featured on her critically acclaimed debut album, Lady Like, which is set for a vinyl release on 10/16 and available for pre-order now (PRE-ORDER HERE).
Earlier this month, she made her return to NBC’s TODAY for a live performance of her song of the summer, “Waste Of Lime” (LISTEN HERE). With its tropical vibes underscored by a nod to The Beach Boys' “Kokomo,” the track showcases Andress’ signature turns-of-phrase and perceptive lyricism and has been highlighted on Best Of lists from Rolling Stone, UPROXX, Idolator and more.
Named to GRAMMY-contender watch lists by both Billboard and HITS, she has accumulated a career total of nearly 350 million global streams and was the only solo-female-debut to crack Top 20 on the Country Airplay chart in 2019. Describing her as “stereotype-busting” and “record-breaking,” Variety also explains that “All the critical acclaim for Andress and her ‘Lady Like’ album isn’t because she represents a return to traditional country — far from it — but because, if she marks a return to anything, it’s to that period in the ’80s and ’90s when strong female singer/songwriters who weren’t necessarily strictly defined by genre found their place in this one, a la Mary-Chapin Carpenter and Rosanne Cash.” Women’s Wear Daily echoes that sentiment, adding that “her distinct style in her music and her fashion choices set her apart from other female artists” (READ HERE).
In addition to TODAY, Andress has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers and received overwhelming critical support from some of the most-read publications across the country including Entertainment Weekly, ELLE, People, UPROXX, PAPER, Idolator, LADYGUNN, Flaunt, HITS and several more. The Colorado-native 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.
