When Jack Ingram won the 2008 Academy of Country Music award for “Best New Male Vocalist,” thousands of people in the audience had to be smiling to themselves about that whole “new” thing. They knew the thirty-something, steel-eyed veteran accepting that trophy on that stage in Vegas had been rocking roadhouses, theaters and stadiums relentlessly since 1997, that he’d been celebrated by critics and fans of hard-core country music for more than a decade, and that as a Texas-born songwriter and performer, he’d been on the short list of next generation artists who could fill the boots of Lone Star legends like Willie and Waylon and the boys.

But the award did mean that Ingram, after trials and setbacks that would have buckled other artists, had at last matched the commercial success he’d always wanted with the integrity on which he’d always insisted. So he told the crowd with no small measure of pride and triumph that night that “big dreams and high hopes” can come true.

Now, as if to validate and amplify that truth, Ingram remains in the forefront of country music with the album Big Dreams & High Hopes, the seventh studio disc of his career and his third for Nashville maverick indie label Big Machine Records. Its eleven tracks range through the many facets of Ingram’s unique take on country music and songwriting. There’s the textured and contemplative “Seeing Stars” sung in ethereal tandem with Patty Griffin. You’ll find a couple of superb roots rocking country songs Jack wrote with compadre and mentor Radney Foster. And you’ve probably already heard the swimming hole party anthem “Barefoot and Crazy” which quickly became a radio smash and a soundtrack for the hot summer of 2009.

This Is It! is the best country CD out there at this time, and Jack Ingram is a great talent! He has parlayed his Texas career into a national presence and his journey is worth noting to all who might hope for wider recognition. It is the true fans who celebrate with him and applaud his success with this superb collection of songs he wrote, some he didn't write, some brand new and some he has been singing for years. Not to mention his big hits! Congratulations to Jack Ingram, and your public is proud for you!!

This CD isn't as bad as I've heard. Give Jack a chance and a few of the tracks will suprise you. The songs I like the best are written by Jack but I'm a vintage Jack fan. It's no "Hey You" but its not bad minus a couple songs.

Wish I could be as enthusiastic as the other critics...bought this one for Lips Of An Angel and probably should have bought Hinder's version instead. Sorry, Jack!

I totally agree about the CD should not be sold, nor should we support some fool like him. He is so disrespectful and has to be the most most ungreatful artist or calls himself a artist that I've ever seen. His mustic is NOT Texas Country and it is horrible he feels like he could even clasify himself as country! That okay, someone will knock him down one day, everyone's turn will come Jacks is just takeing a bit longer but I will wait around to watch it and will NOT support him or anything that might "even" benefit hime! Good luck to all the REAL TEXAS COUNTRY TALENT!

This album shouldn't be sold here on Lonestar Music. It should be sold on the commercials of "Trick My Truck" and at Wal-Mart.

for people who call jack a "sellout" that just shows your ignorance. this cd definently imbodies everything bout jack, from his love show, to his older music, to his current more commercial sound. all this "texas music" stuff is crap. its either good or bad. all texas music artists are, are guys who are only good enough to play in this state and thats because its so damn big. as soon as a guy goes to the mecca of country music he his considered a sell-out and thats stupid. texas music in most cases is nothing but the minor leagues. when the artists gets called up to the majors he is shamed of it. all he is doing is making the same music he would if he were recording his cd in houston or dallas or wherever in texas, except he his getting more exposure. pardon him if he wants to make some money and do something more with his music instead of just playing texas bars and struggling to get by supporting himself and his family. if yall want to keep listening to your "texas music" thats fine and dandy, but be prepared to not listen to stoney, wade and others when they get the chance to get more mainstreem cause ill guarntee you they will get their chance before too long, and ill guarntee you they will take it.

This CD is positively shining with talent! Jack has put all the pieces in place with THis Is It!! This work of art has his hits, his great sense of humor, but above all, his creative abilities all in one package. And, above all, each song is different, offering the listener another taste of this great artist. And the music reflecting on his family roots in West Texas, his son, his daughter is especially poignant. His work with Todd Snider is fun, light, and his duet piece with Sheryl Crow all add up to make this quite a package. From the Radney Foster opening to the last sweet note of All You Do, it is a joy! Hasn't been one like this one is some time!

This CD is great. Measure of a Man, Great Divide, Make a Wish, and Don't Want to Hurt are the highlights, but I think the whole CD is great.
