Ingrid Andress’ Fan Interaction Left Her Feeling Appreciated…But Also Judged

Ingrid Andress’ Fan Interaction Left Her Feeling Appreciated…But Also Judged

Ingrid Andress is one of the hottest rising female singers in country music. While she hasn’t been able to tour over the past year, she has made many notable national TV appearances…that has made her even more recognizable than the was before.

Ingrid does recall a time, before quarantine, when she out and did get recognized by a fan…“I had just done a workout class, and showered, had my hair up, didn’t have any make-up on, I was looking at sweaters or something. This mom came up to me and was like ‘Are you Ingrid Andress?’…I’m like mid-sweater pick, and I’m just like, ‘Yes.’ My immediate thought was ‘I’ve done something wrong.’ She was like ‘I just want you to know that I really like your music.’ I was like ‘Oh, oh my gosh, thank you so much.” Then I pretty sure she looked at the sweater I was holding and kind of gave it a weird look, like ‘You shouldn’t get that’ and then walked away. I was like ‘OK, I feel appreciated and judged at the same time’.”

No judging here–only appreciation…

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
