Country rising artist Ingrid Andress connected with Sam Hunt for the first time for a new thrilling duet, “Wishful Drinking.”
Ingrid & Sam Sound Majestic Together
“Wishful Drinking” is a song you will certainly want to sing along at karaoke night with your friends. Even better, with a special someone! The track offers a soothing melody combined with the sound of acoustic and electric guitars and even a keyboard.
Ingrid and Sam unite their voices magnificently all throughout the song, as they narrate a story of a sad burnt-out relationship. “Maybe I’m just wishful drinking. Give my heart 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 won’t do. For another round of me and you. I’m wishful drinking,” they sing together in the chorus.
“Wishful Drinking” is the First Song They Work Together on
In a press release, the pair shared their thoughts about the new collaboration. Ingrid said, “I’ve never done anything like ‘Wishful Drinking’ before. 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.”
Sam revealed that this is the first collaboration he formed a part of where he didn’t take part in the songwriting process. “I heard Ingrid’s music a while back and knew right away she was a very talented singer and songwriter. 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.”
