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.

I saw Jack in concert about a month back, and I have to say that I was HIGHLY disappointed. He seemed to be drunk or on something. He was slurring his words, and he couldn't even stand up straight. The singing was even WORSE!!! We actually got up and left about 1/3 through the concert. Several other people did the same.. I love country music and I have been to several country concerts. This was BY FAR the worst concert I have even been to in my life. His CD is OKAY, but not worth spending your $$ on.. Also, definately don't waste your $$ on a live show by him.. AWFUL...

I was willing to give Jack the benefit of the doubt that he wouldn't go the Pat Green route. There are a few vintage Jack songs on the new CD and some throways, but I had hope the old Jack would be back. After seeing the youtube clip of Jack prancing around on stage in the exterminator suit while Brad Paisley sings his ticks song I've given up. How pathetically sad and humiliating. Why Jack why?

The stand
Hey Cujo, which is it? You say he's not a sell-out, then you say he's not writing the songs he wants to. That makes a lot of sense! I got news for you. A sell-out is someone who does things that OTHERS want, and not necessarily what he wants. Quit trying to justify poop. There's a whole wack of these artists doing this. If they choose to go this route that's their business, as long as they don't try and tell people (like Pat Green) that they're not selling out! At least be honest about it. Last time I saw Jack, he was dressed in a fumagator suite chasing two people dressed as big bugs on stage with Brad Paisley (see on youtube.com). That is pretty sad.

Enough of this 'sell out' talk! Jack has been through the ringer before with major labels. He's learned some lessons and I know he knows he has to do things 'their' way for the time being, but after a while, he'll be doing things 'his' way again. And if you think Jack has 'sold out', you should see one of his shows. It's the same whether there are 15 people there or 15,000. At any rate, I'm still a little disappointed in the CD, would've liked to seen more Jack written songs, but you can't go wrong with Radney Foster's and Blu Sanders' writing. That being said, it's no wonder I like "Measure of a Man", "Hold On", "Ava Adele" and "Great Divide" as my favorite tracks on the CD.
