Album Notes and Credits
Composer: Jack Ingram.
On THIS IS IT, his second album for the Big Machine label and first studio outing since 2004's YOUNG MAN, Jack Ingram offers up another well-honed set of country-rock tunes. Although considerably more accessible than predecessors such as Waylon Jennings and Steve Earle, the Texan singer/guitarist balances pop-inclined tracks (see the uplifting "Lips of an Angel," which, oddly enough, is originally by the rock band Hinder) with charming doses of twang and grit, as the gentle "Ava Adele" and the energetic "Measure of a Man" respectively reveal. While Ingram remains underrated, THIS IS IT reinforces his considerable talents, and should deservedly garner him a wider audience.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.62) - "[I]ts charming final four tracks are rooted in the alt-country tradition in which the raspy Texan got his start." -- Grade: B
Artist Bio
Jack IngramAround the time Jack Ingram started writing songs and performing, he was studying psychology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. "Music and psychology come from the same place," he says. "It's about studying why people tick. I write songs to figure out my world, why people act the way they do, why they make the decisions they do."Lucky for us, Ingram chose a career in music - and discovered an altogether different kind of therapy. He weaved his questions about life into songs whose depth and incisive wit were matched only by their melodic resonance and insistent hooks. And instead of charging a hundred bucks an hour to listen to our problems, Ingram took to the stage and channeled his emotional searching, his quest to find a place in the world, into one of music's most explosive live shows.You can hear that onstage electricity in full roar on Live - Wherever You Are, Ingram's first release on Nashville's new Big Machine label. The company is the brainchild of industry vet Scott Borchetta and country superstar Toby Keith, in whom Ingram has found an unlikely kindred spirit. "He says what he means, he does it his way and he takes a stand," says Ingram. "It's great to be a part of that, because that's how I've always been as well. I know exactly who I am and what I want to sound like."Since then, Ingram's reach has grown steadily but surely. "Now it's ages from 6 to 60 at the shows," he says. "Hippies, outlaws, rednecks, preppies. It's a cross-section of America I'm looking at now." He has broadened his horizons to include his own annual "Real. American. Music. Festival" outside San Antonio, Texas, and his own weekly radio show that he hosts on one of the nation's biggest country stations, KPLX "The Wolf" in Dallas. This weekly show also airs nationally on XM Satellite Radio's channel 12. He's even branched out into acting, appearing as the romantic lead in friend Lee Ann Womack's hit "I May Hate Myself in the Morning" video ("I guess I was just ugly enough to fit the bill," he laughs).Now Jack Ingram is ready to expand his audience even further, to reach all of America with his music-and finally, all the elements necessary to make that happen seem to be in place."I've always thought that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is," he says. "But I just can't bring myself to say this is too good to be true. It just feels really good, it feels very real to me. It feels right. This is just the beginning."
