When Ingrid Andress hit the country music scene with her debut single, “More Hearts Than Mine,” it was clear that she had something special. Now, the song has officially reached No.1 on the Mediabase Country Aircheck chart, proving that the country music community’s first instincts about the songstress were correct.
The rising star took to social media to share her gratitude over the news, thanking “everyone who listened to this little piece of my heart.”
“Thank you country radio for your support and for embracing me and this song so readily,” Andress, who co-wrote the touching ballad alongside Sam Ellis and Derrick Southerland, later shared in a statement. “This is extra special because it’s a song about my family, who I love so much and who have been my #1 fans from the beginning. I’m beyond happy it has resonated with so many people, because that’s the whole beauty of country music; real stories that are told about real people living in this country. It’s an honor to tell those stories as so many legends have done before me.”
History has been made with the song’s chart-topping success, which follows Gabby Barrett’s “I Hope” holding the No.1 spot last week. Until now, never in the recorded history of Country Aircheck have two debut females had back to back chart-topping singles.
“More Hearts Than Mine” is featured on Andress’ debut album, Lady Like, which became the high streaming country female debut album of all time upon its release earlier this year.
