Jack Ingram Proves That Hard Work Pays Off
His current Top 5 hit, “Wherever You Are,” is all about talent, hard work, positive attitude and perseverance ultimately paying off. Since joining Big Machine Records at its inception late last year and releasing his debut album, Live – Wherever You Are, in January, Jack has logged thousands of frequent flier miles, shaken countless hands and sung on TV and radio at 6am more times than ever before in his music career. And you’ll hear nothing but gratitude from the tired Texan, although a day off sounds really good. But an extended period of rest and relaxation will have to wait. Jack and his Beat-Up Ford Band will be opening a number of shows for country superstars Brooks & Dunn in the southeast next month. “I have a Top 5 hit on country radio and I’m going out on tour with Brooks and Dunn…are you sure you have the right number?” Jack asks with a hearty laugh. “Seriously, this feels great, it is great, and, after all, 5 is one of my favorite numbers.”
The song continues its climb to the top of the charts this week.
