She followed that with her 2018 album, May Your Kindness Remain, which also shot to No. 1 on the Official UK Americana Albums and Independent Album Breakers charts, as well as topping the Euro Americana Chart. Since its release, Andrews won International Artist of the Year at the 2018 UK Americana Awards and earned a nomination for Emerging Artist of the Year at the 2018 Americana Music Association Honors & Awards.
The 10 new songs comprising Old Flowers stemmed from the aftermath of a long-term relationship and follow her personal journey through heartbreak, loneliness and finding herself again. In the lead up to its July 24 debut via Fat Possum Records, Andrews released several singles including “If I Told,” “It Must Be Someone Else’s Fault,” “How You Get Hurt” and “Burlap String.”
Old Flowers has been steadily climbing the charts, while “It Must Be Someone Else’s Fault,” was the top downloaded single at AAA radio and reached a new peak at No. 15 on the Americana Singles chart. Andrews was the cover of Spotify’s Fresh Folk playlist and was featured on CBS’ Saturday Morning.

“We are so happy to welcome Courtney Marie Andrews to the One Riot roster,” said Amy Patton, One Riot’s General Manager. “Her songwriting is both heartbreaking and heart-mending—a rare and beautiful ability. It’s an honor to join the team as her publishing partner!”
