Throughout a recording career that has spanned more than 20 years, Jack Ingram has maintained a reputation for personally charged song craft and charismatic performances, earning him prominent stature in a prestigious tradition of singer-songwriters. Ingram’s prior work has won him a fiercely devoted fan base as well as critical acclaim. Ingram’s latest release, Ridin’ High… Again features a collection of tunes that are stylistically and sonically a tip of the cap to the records of Ingram’s heroes Jerry Jeff Walker & Willie Nelson. The album was recorded at Austin, TX’s iconic Arlyn Studios in just two days in what Ingram describes as one “forty-eight hour party.” The artist’s 10th studio album is jam-packed with timeless covers and new favorites like Where there’s a Willie, that will have you out of your seat and jamming to the beat. Ingram was named Best New Male Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music in 2008, even though he’d already been rocking honky tonks, theaters, and stadiums for over a decade by then. He began writing songs and playing gigs while studying psychology at Southern Methodist University, and quickly earned a devoted audience. Today, Ingram is not only busy touring, but helped found the joint fundraising effort, Mack, Jack & McConaughey, along with Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey and Texas coaching legend Mack Brown. The nonprofit has given over $5 million dollars to charitable organizations including CureDuchenne, Dell Children’s Medical Center, HeartGift and The Rise School of Austin. Jack Ingram’s iconic Outdoor Stage shows at The MusicFest are not to be missed! Plus Jack and Wade’s acoustic show on the mountain top is back this year by overwhelming demand!
