Released in August, “Wishful Drinking” tells the story of a couple who is trying to move past a breakup and find themselves thinking of one another when they drink. 

“Maybe I’m just wishing drinking/ Give my hear something to sink in/ Better make it two, nothing I won’t do/ For another round of me and you/ I get hopeful when I’m tipsy/ Thinking you might actually miss me/ It’s 100 proof, nothing I don’t do/ For another round of me and you/ I’m wishful drinking,” they sing on the chorus. 

“I’ve never done anything like ‘Wishful Drinking’ before,” Andress previously shared in a statement. “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,” Hunt added. “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.” 

“Wishful Drinking” is Andress’ first collaboration since the release of her debut album, Lady Like. The song is at country radio now.
