Jessica Andrews, who first broke on the country scene as a 15-year-old in 1999, is the first artist signed to recently launched Carolwood Records, a sister imprint to Nashville’s Lyric Street Records.
Andrews, who previously recorded for the now defunct DreamWorks Nashville, has charted 11 tracks on Hot Country Songs, with “Who I Am” reaching No. 1 in 2001. She has sold 1.25 million albums in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Her best selling release was 2001’s “Who I Am,” which sold 737,000 copies.
“We’re thrilled to have an artist of Jessica’s caliber and track record to help us launch Carolwood,” Lyric Street and Carolwood president Randy Goodman said in a prepared statement. “Our goal with Carolwood was to come out of the box and take our first single all the way and Jessica gives us that credibility and shot.”
Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus produced her debut Carolwood single, “Everything,” which will be delivered to country radio on Nov. 4.
