How Kickball Helped Sam Hunt & Ingrid Andress Team Up On 'Wishful Drinking'


Sam Hunt and Ingrid Andress have a few things in common. They are both vivid storytellers, enjoy the tenderness of a "sad bop," and occasionally have been known to enjoy a friendly game of kickball.  

Sam recently joined Cody Alan to reveal how a fun round of kickball singlehandedly turned into his collaboration with Ingrid on her latest heartbreak song, "Wishful Drinking."

"We met at a kickball game," Sam smiles. "I play basketball with some guys who put together a kickball team, and I got invited to join them, and I met her there."

"I was familiar with her and her songwriting, but she and I were like 'the substitutes.' So, we spent a lot of time on the sidelines just cutting up."

Sam and Ingrid shared smiles, laughs, and sidelines jokes which would pave the path for them to join forces on another kind of project - music.  

"If I don't know somebody, it's hard for me to commit to collaborate with another artist if we haven't spent time together," says Sam candidly. "But, we hit it off, and I had really good energy from her. So, it worked out!"

'Maybe I'm just wishful drinking,' but we hope more Sam and Ingrid collabs will be in our future. Listen to Sam and Ingrid soar over sadness by clicking the link below.
