When I was in high school I would go on these crazy binges at the record store (back when those were a thing). I knew what kind of music I liked and I wanted to completely immerse myself in it. Any time I found an album by a young, female country artist, I had to have it right then and there. During one of these two hours or so wandering around a random Virgin records I discovered Jessica Andrews. To date, I own all three of her albums; “Heart Shaped World,” “Who I Am,” and “Now.” I listened to “Heart Shaped World” on repeat when I bought it, some of those songs will still come on at random on my iTunes, and I still can’t help but smile at the memories that they inspire.
One of my all time favorite Jessica Andrew’s songs was “There’s More To Me Than You,” specifically the ballad version, because you know me and ballads. I happen to stumble across the music video a few days ago and was reminded how much I loved this song. Both the ballad and the uptempo were inspiring to me as a teenager, and today, it seems to mean even more. Isn’t it funny how music does that? Changes as you do.
I hope you enjoy this fun little throwback. Maybe someday we’ll hear more from Jessica Andrews!
