Courtney Marie Andrews bags Grammy Nomination for Old Flowers

Friday, 27th November 2020

Courtney Marie Andrews has received a well-deserved nomination for ‘Best Americana Album’ at the 2021 GRAMMYs. The nomination comes hot on the heels of nominations for Best International Artist and Best International Album at the 2021 Americana Association UK Awards. Produced by Andrew Sarlo (Bon Iver, Big Thief), Old Flowers was released to widespread critical acclaim in August 2020.

Created in the aftermath of a long-term relationship, Old Flowers features Andrews’ most vulnerable writing to date on ten new songs that chronicle her journey through heartbreak, loneliness and finding herself again after it all. In addition to Andrews (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano), the album features only two other musicians: Matthew Davidson (bass, celeste, mellotron, pedal steel, piano, pump organ, wurlitzer, background vocals) and Big Thief’s James Krivchenia (drums, percussion).
