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 guy gets better every record!! This CD has it all, rockin' summer fun with Barefoot and Crazy! Soulful sweet ballads...oh, Jack! I will listen to it over and over!!

I love this guy....and I especially love this soulful, beautiful bunch of songs. I have been listening to the previews on his website and cannot wait for the rest! "In the Corner" is especially deep and mysterious. I remember hearing him sing this live at an acoustic show, and I thought then that he has incredible courage to write a song like this, and then to perform it. Very revealing.

I like Jack Ingram, but why does it seem that Barbie Doll is on every single CD he has since he first sang the song? Can he not make a complete CD with enough songs without adding it?

What a sell-out. This is Nashville crap. You and Pat Green make me sick. You probably are gay for each other too.

Great addition to my Jack collection! This one has some fast upbeat tunes, but I love the Jack ballads the best. Always have....

Bad music, over-produced. Where's "The World Ain't Slowin' Down"? Heard that the song was going to be on it...extremely disappointed it's not.

What a truly talented and classy CD. I listened to the previews on Big Machine's website, and I not only love Barefoot and Crazy, I love it that he has re-recorded Barbie Doll!! I love it that Jack has remained true to his heart and talent. I cannot wait for these songs in a live show!
