In 2008, Ingram won Best New Male Vocalist at the Academy of Country Music and has recently released "Big Dreams and High Hopes," fea- turing radio smash hit "Bare- foot and Crazy." "Big Dreams and High Hopes" marks Ingram's sev- enth studio disc and his third for indie label Big Machine Records. Other well-known songs in- clude "That's a Man" and "Wherever You Are" from the 2007 CD "This is It." The popular Friday night concert will be July 23 at the Main Grandstands.

The website says Texas- raised Ingram first got his stage experience when he took a drama class in high school and although it wasn't his calling, it was a rush. "All of a sudden there was this pressure and this element of having to deliver right now in front of a crowd, and if you don't you fall (down)," he said, "and that got me." He applied the challenge to music while attending South- ern Methodist University where he started an open mic with Willie Nelson songs learned out of a songbook and one original tune. The website says Ingrain and his Beat Up Ford Band then began to "pack the bars of Dallas and Houston." However, Ingram said what he was doing was not sound- ing like what he heard in his head. With a goal in mind, he then built a reputation as a "smart" songwriter and a "can't-miss live performer." Nashville's Rising Tide label signed him, re-issuing his first two independent albums, a live disc and his 1997 "Livin' or dyin:'" After Rising Tide went out of business, Ingrain signed with Sony's Lucky Dog label where he "was admired by music writers and county connoisseurs but he struggled to connect on country radio." When he lost his deal with Sony as well as a management deal, Ingram met with a veter- an country record promoter who had launched Big Ma- chine Records. The website said, "In an industry and genre where outsider labels have had an almost impossible time building hit-making careers, Big Machine took a chance on Jack, and equally Jack took a chance on one of those inde- pendent label. The new label worked with more dedication and patience than Ingram had ever seen to find the song that would break through. It was 'Wherever You Are,' the first single of his career to reach number one."
