Did you know? Just a little Jackin around....
1. Jack and his Beat Up Ford Band appear in the Sandra Bullock/Harry Connick Jr. movie Hope Floats.
2. Billy Joe Shaver and Waylon Jennings are huge fans.
3. Jack has a radio show "Jack's Tracks" on both Dallas radio station 99.5 "The Wolf" and XM radio channel 12.
4. He just recorded a duet with none other than Willie Nelson.
5. Jack began writing songs and playing guitar while studying psychology at SMU in Dallas.
Around the time Jack Ingram started writing songs and performing, he was studying psychology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. "Music and psychology come from the same place," he says. "It's about studying why people tick. I write songs to figure out my world, why people act the way they do, why they make the decisions they do."
Lucky for us, Ingram chose a career in music-and discovered an altogether different kind of therapy. He weaved his questions about life into songs whose depth and incisive wit were matched only by their melodic resonance and insistent hooks.

Jack Owen Ingram (born November 15, 1970) is an American country music artist signed to Big Machine Records, an independent record label. He has released eight studio albums, one extended play, six live albums and 18 singles. Although active since 1992, Ingram did not reach the U.S. country Top 40 until the late 2005 release of his single "Wherever You Are". A number one hit on the Billboard country charts, it was also his first release for Big Machine and that label's first Number One hit. Besides this song, Ingram has sent six other songs into the country Top 40: "Love You," a cover version of Hinder's "Lips of an Angel," "Measure of a Man," "Maybe She'll Get Lonely," "That's a Man" and "Barefoot and Crazy."
