Ingrid Andress performed her Platinum-certified debut single “More Hearts Than Mine” at 54th annual CMA Awards on Wednesday (Nov. 11).
Andress said that it is so crazy to her that she is getting to perform her debut single on the CMA Awards.
“It’s such a personal song… you know when I wrote it I didn’t think I would be performing it at an award show, so it’s going to be a beautiful thing, a roller coaster of emotions,” Andress said ahead of her performance to RADIO.COM.
