Ingrid is a rising country star who rose to fame in 2020. This will be her first time performing at the CMT Awards. However, she was nominated for Breakthrough Video of the Year at the show in 2020, so she’s no stranger to the event. Ahead of the big performance, here’s more to know about Ingrid.

The song even saw some mainstream love, reaching number 30 in the Billboard Top 100. Additionally, the song was nominated for a CMA Award, CMT Award, Grammy Award and ACM Award. Although Ingrid didn’t win any of the categories she was up for, it was still a great showing for a debut!
2. Ingrid Is Grammy Nominated
In addition to her Best Country Song nomination at the Grammys for “More Hearts Than Mine,” Ingrid was also up for Best New Artist and Best Country Album for her debut album, Lady Like. Additionally, she scored a New Female Artist of the Year nomination at the ACMs and New Artist of the Year nod at the 2020 CMAs.
3. Ingrid Was On ‘The Sing-Off’

5. Is Ingrid Andress Married?
If Ingrid has someone special in her life, she’s kept it to herself! She’s been extremely private about her personal life on social media, and has not disclosed whether or not she’s in a relationship. However, she does not wear a wedding ring or an engagement ring, so she does not appear to be married just yet.

Pink Offers To Pay ‘Sexist’ Fines Against Norwegian Women’s Handball Team After They Wear Shorts
After the Norwegian Women’s beach handball team got fined for refusing to wear bikini bottoms, Pink trashed the ‘very sexist rules’ and offered to cover the bill.
Pink is doling out the green to protest the European Handball Federation’s rules. The governing body fined the Norwegian women’s beach handball team a total of €1,500 (around $1,765, per CNN) after the team wore shorts, just like their male counterparts, to the 2021 European Beach Handball Championships. “I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR ‘uniform,” Pink, 41, tweeted on Sunday (July 25). “The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.”
I’m VERY proud of the Norwegian female beach handball team FOR PROTESTING THE VERY SEXIST RULES ABOUT THEIR “uniform”. The European handball federation SHOULD BE FINED FOR SEXISM. Good on ya, ladies. I’ll be happy to pay your fines for you. Keep it up.

The team shared their love for Pink by reposting her tweet to their Instagram story. “Wow! Thank you so much for the support,” they added, per CNN. The team also shared their gratitude for all the support they’ve received over this fight. “We are very proud of these girls who during the European Championships raised their voices,” the Norwegian Handball Federation official Twitter account tweeted. “We at NHF stand behind you and support you. Together we will continue to fight to change the rules for clothing so that players can play in the clothes they are comfortable with!”
Vi er kjempestolte over disse jentene som under EM hevet stemmen og ga beskjed om at NOK ER NOK! Vi i NHF står bak dere og støtter dere. Sammen skal vi fortsette å kjempe for å endre regelverket for bekledning, slik at spillerne får spille i det tøyet de er komfortable med! pic.twitter.com/MmfiMtVz2Q

According to International Handball Federation regulations, female-identifying players must wear biking bottoms “with a side width of a maximum of 10 centimeters (3.9 inches), with a ‘close fit’ and ‘cut on an upward angle toward the top of the leg,’” per CNN. Meanwhile, male-identifying players are allowed to wear shorts that are “not too baggy” and 10 centimeters above the knee. Many female players say that the uniform is degrading, and Eskil Berg Andreassen, the team’s coach, told CNN that the team was fighting for the freedom “to choose” its own kit, adding that the required uniforms could discourage women from playing the sport.
In response to the criticism, EHF President Michael Wiederer said that “the EHF will do all it can to ensure that a change of athlete uniform regulations can be implemented. Significant efforts will be made in order to further promote the sport in the best way possible for everyone, regardless of gender.” However, the president said that such changes in regulations could not happen overnight.
Scott Disick Sweetly Snuggles GF Amelia Hamlin As They Go For A Hamptons Boat Ride With Penelope, 9 — Photos
Scott Disick and Amelia Hamlin are enjoying some quality time in the Hamptons, cuddling up under a designer blanket while out for a boat ride.
Scott Disick has snuggled up to his new girlfriend Amelia Hamlin, while spending some quality time in the Hamptons. The 38-year-old took to Instagram on July 24 to share a pic of the couple getting cozy on a boat. Scott revealed they were joined by his daughter Penelope, 9, while vacationing in The Hamptons, the popular celeb hot spot east of New York City. In the pic, he and Amelia were wrapped up in an Hermes blanket to protect against the chilly ocean breeze.
The daughter of Lisa Rinna wore a white sweater while Scott cut an equally casual figure in a grey hoodie. “Hermes only to swim,” he captioned the photo. It comes just one week after Scott shared a pic to his Instagram story with Amelia and Reign posing on a dock. “Great night just a little smelly for reign out on these old docks,” he wrote, explaining why Reign was holding his nose shut with his left hand.
In the photo, Scott rocked camouflage sweatpants and a white tee, along with blue and white sneakers and platinum blonde hair. 20-year-old Amelia looked glam in a beige corset-style top and and high-waisted cream pants, which she paired with pointy-toe heels. The father-of-three also posted a pic of his daughter Penelope sitting on top of a Mercedes SUV. The nine-year-old, whom he shares with his former partner Kourtney Kardashian, cut a casual figure in a pink sweatsuit and slip-on shoes.
Scott and Amelia first sparked dating rumors in October 2020, however, the 18 year age gap has been a point of contention for Amelia’s mom Lisa. The Days of Our Lives alum confessed that her daughter told her she was just “friends” with Scott until Amelia sent her a photo of the two on the beach. At that point, Lisa said she knew there was “more to it” in a recent episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “She’s 19. He’s 37 with three kids. Hello?” she said on camera during the episode, which filmed in November. “I’m a lot nervous about it,” Lisa also added at the time.
