Grammy nominated newcomer Ingrid Andress gives fans an insiders look at being a country outsider with A Lady Like That, a short film now streaming via Amazon Music.
Showcasing one of 2020’s biggest surprise success stories, the clip tracks the “More Hearts Than Mine” hit maker whole journey so far — and does it all in about sixteen minutes.
Directed by Lauren Dunn, the project features never-before-seen home video footage, candid interviews and behind-the-scenes moments, as Andress takes stock of her career breakthrough. Arriving with the Number One breakout, “More Hearts Than Mine,” and her Lady Like album debut, the rising star showed fans a willingness to stand out in a genre defined by tradition, and her boldness was rewarded.
Andress scored three GRAMMY nominations in 2021 for Best New Artist, Best Country Song, and Best Country Album, and the film rides along as she embarks on her Grammy adventure — something she never thought would come so soon. It includes some of her happiest memories and digs in to how devastating the COVID-19 pandemic was, along with plenty of other intensely vulnerable moments. And in the end, it shows that the sky is the limit for this unique country talent.
“It’s been a dream to work with Lauren Dunn, Amazon Music, Breakwater Studios, and my team on this project. To have the opportunity to work with this stellar group and bring my story to life has been incredible,” Andress shared. “I’m excited for more folks to learn about my journey into the country music format and I hope my story can be encouraging to anyone who feels like an outsider.”
The film is joined by a new version of “Lady Like,” reimagined with an all-female orchestra backing her up — “lady like” indeed — and A Lady Like That is also available through the Amazon Music app. It follows other special films on stars like Dolly Parton, Kane Brown, Gabby Barrett and more, and Ingrid Andress is set to rejoin Dan + Shay’s The (Arena) Tour this September.
