BMPRSHOST: What is your process for picking the songs you put on an album?
Jessica Andrews: I have two A & R people who listen to songs for me all of the time. When they hear something that they think I will like, they send it to me. We usually listen to hundreds of songs before we find the right ones. It's a long process, but I believe that it's the most important in creating an album.
BMPRSHOST: Compared to your first CD, Heart Shaped World, how long did Who I Am take to record?
Jessica Andrews: Well, my first album took about two years and my latest record took about a year and a half. I think spending time on an album only makes it better.
BMPRSHOST: I know that you and Faith Hill are friends, do you think you both would ever record a song together?
Jessica Andrews: I would love to record a song with her. Faith is one of my favorite singers!! I have no idea if it will ever happen, but that would be a dream come true!
BMPRSHOST: If you could record a song with any Country Music singer, who would you choose, and why?
Jessica Andrews: Probably Faith Hill or Martina McBride. I think our voices would really compliment each other.
BMPRSHOST: What song have you heard and wished you could have recorded?
Jessica Andrews: WOW! There have been so many!
BMPRSHOST: If you could describe Who I Am (The Album) in only one sentence, what would you say?
Jessica Andrews: This album is definitely WHO I AM!!!!!!!
BMPRSHOST: Being on the road all of the time can be stressful, what do you do to relax?
Jessica Andrews: I love to watch movies, go swimming and just chill. Fun stuff relaxes me.
BMPRSHOST: I think it is wonderful that you take time to post messages on your Official Message Board, how often do you get to visit the site?
Jessica Andrews: I visit the site every day!! I love reading all the nice messages that the fans post, and I think it's important for them to know that I read all of them and that I really care.
BMPRSHOST: I have heard that you and Billy Gilman will be out on the road together, how long have you known him?
Jessica Andrews: I met Billy Gilman about a year ago and I am so excited that we are going to be touring together. He is so talented! I know we are going to have a blast!
BMPRSHOST: Do you plan on going to College after you graduate?
Jessica Andrews: It really depends on where I am at in my career at that point, I would love to go, but maybe not immediately after I graduate.
BMPRSHOST: Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my questions! I have been a fan from day one and I really think you will go far with your career. It is neat to see someone that is about my age doing what you are.
Jessica Andrews: Thank you Jennifer!!
