Biography

Around 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.”

    The TEXAS version of Jack Ingram is awesome. Albums like Electric , Young Man & Hey You are classic Texas Music. Great songs are: Goodnight Moon, Beat Up Ford and Mustang Burn. The NASHVILLE version of Jack is good too but it sounds just like everything else coming out of Nashville, pre-packaged and force-fed to the public. Country music is alive and well but it's heart is in Austin, not Nashville. Please come home Jack after you make your millions.

    I love Jack, but I agree with runningchef. Lips of an Angel should not be a country song.

    I'm totally digging the new album. Anyone else had a chance to pick it up yet?

    My favorite song by Jack is the duet with Jerry Jeff Walker, Picture On My Wall. I seriously can't get enough of that song. But Red White and Blues and Love You come in a close second and third. Not a big fan of that cover of Lips Of An Angel, though. Nothing against Jack, but that song did NOT need a country remake.
