Now is the third album by country music singer Jessica Andrews. It was released on April 15, 2003. The single "There's More to Me Than You" served as its lead-off single, reaching Top 20 on the country charts. "Good Time" was also a single, peaking at number 49 on the country charts.[1]

Content[edit]

Several of the album's songs, including lead single "There's More to Me Than You", were written by Marcel, who would later become Andrews's husband. Now is also Andrews' last album, although she had multiple single releases afterward. In 2004, she recorded a duet with Bret Michaels of Poison titled "All I Ever Needed". After it, she released two singles for an unreleased fourth album for DreamWorks which would have been titled Ain't That Life, plus one single for Carolwood Records.[2]

The album was produced by Byron Gallimore, the producer of Andrews' previous two albums, except for the track "Second Sunday", which was produced by James Stroud and Billy Mann.[3]

Critical reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[4]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic rated the album 4.5 out of 5 stars, concluding his review by saying: "But even if this does have an adult-pop bent, it's still done better than nearly any other adult-pop in 2003, and the times that Now does loosen up offer tantalizing possibilities of where Andrews could go next. And, no matter which way you cut it, as of this writing Now is one of the best mainstream pop albums of 2003, with only Kelly Clarkson's Thankful rivaling it in consistency and quality."[4]
