Ingrid Andress performs onstage at Nashville’s Music City Center for “The 54th Annual CMA Awards” broadcast on Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2020 in Nashville.

Country newcomer Ingrid Andress captivated viewers with her moving performance of her breakout single "More Hearts Than Mine" at the 2020 CMA Awards Wednesday night (Nov. 11).

With an orchestra in tow, Andress' melancholy record got the best of her, as she finished the song in tears. "Tell a lie and say he never really liked you/ Oh, if we break up I'll be fine/ But you'll be breaking more hearts than mine/You'll be breaking more hearts than mine," she sang at the end of the record."

The 29-year-old singer notched two nominations for tonight's festivities, including new artist of the year and song of the year. In an interview with Genius last March, Andress explained her family's importance in dating.

"I feel like every person that I've dated, I always hype up my family to them, because they mean so much to me," she said. "Just all the cool parts about growing up, because we would hang out together all the time, my siblings would. So, I feel like sometimes I annoy people or, not annoyed, but I feel like they get a boatload of information about my family that they did not ask for.

"More Hearts Than Mine" resides on her latest album Lady Like, which was released last July.
