Jack Ingram shoots video Friday

Wednesday, June 10, 2009 – Jack Ingram will do a video shoot - public invited - Friday in Texas for his new single Barefoot & Crazy.

The show will be held at night at Austin's Lakeway Resort on Lake Travis. "You know if we're gonna throw a pool party, I wanna do it in my backyard," Ingram said. "That's the whole idea of 'Barefoot & Crazy'... You can get a little wild and kick out all that stress right where you are. It's a matter of just letting go and letting it fly. And for me, that's something I think we all forget can happen a whole lot closer to home than we think."

The video will be directed by Stephen Shepherd, who just wrapped a multiple day shoot with Gary Allen at Red Rocks in Denver. Fans are invited to come as they area. "That's the whole idea," Ingram said. "At a time when it seems like the pressure just won't quit. There's never enough and you can't quite get everywhere you need to be, there's always a place you can escape to... to let go of all that...and we all need to do that every now and again. You know, it sounds so simple, but there's nothing that'll save your life you know, make it all feel right again... quite like just getting away."

After Lake Travis, look for Ingram to return to Nashville, where he will be one of the acts playing LP Field as the CMA Music Festival closes out for another year.

CD reviews for Jack Ingram

Midnight Motel CD review - Midnight Motel
Jack Ingram tells a crazy story about the inspiration for "Blaine's Ferris Wheel" at the end of another song, "I Feel Like Drinking Tonight." It's one of a few places where Ingram can be heard just talking. In part, this story concerns a time when Ingram was asked to open for the late Merle Haggard. But as great a storyteller Ingram is, he's even a better songwriter and "I Feel Like Drinking Tonight" ranks right up there with all those great Haggard drinking songs. »»»
Big Dreams & High Hopes CD review - Big Dreams & High Hopes
Jack Ingram spent much of the '90s polishing his star in the organic, stripped-down Texas music scene before leaving it behind for the allure (and chance for a larger career) that comes with Nashville's pop-country sound. Ingram's music has become sleeker, with drums and electric guitar thrown to the forefront in true Nashville style, but even that can't hide his slightly rugged vocals. A bitter, darker version of honky-tonk rocker Barbie Doll was released on his 1999 album "Hey You. »»»
This is It CD review - This is It
Before slapping the sellout tag on Jack Ingram for recording Hinder's poppy power ballad "Lips of an Angel" or chalking it up to a new record company's desperate move to make its star male sound hip and contemporary, give it a listen. Like Ingram says in the liner notes, a good song is a good song. Problem is, if it becomes his trademark song, much like Mark Chesnutt just can't shake "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" despite everything else he's done, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: For Brooks and fans, a most unusual change of pace – To say that this was a change of pace for Garth Brooks - not to mention his fans - would be an understatement of the highest degree. Brooks all but begged during the show to be playing next door at Gillette Stadium where the New England Patriots play. But, alas, Brooks exuded joy and excitement at the chance to play before about 500 people at a club,... »»»
Concert Review: LBT proves more than capable – If you have seen Little Big Town in the last decade, it could have been anywhere from a B stage at a Rib Fest to a 20,000-seat amphitheater as the opener for some of country's top acts. Their current "Nightfall" tour rightfully proves they are more than capable and well deserved being billed as a top headlining act.... »»»

Nightfall CD review - Nightfall
Little Big Town gets billed as a country music vocal group, but "Nightfall" plays out more like a four-headed singer-songwriter effort. Many of these songs hearken back to some of the best '70s introspective songwriter efforts. »»»
