Jack Ingram, the 2018 winner of the Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year award, will be in Texoma next week. Ingram will be performing at the Denison summer music concert series, Music on Main, on Friday.
The show begins at 7 p.m. at Heritage Park in Denison.
Ingram has been performing country music for more than 20 years, and the Texas native has released eight studio albums. The most recent record, “Midnight Motel,” was released in August 2016 under the Rounder Records label.
“I couldn’t have made this record when I was 25, because I just didn’t have the experience then,” Ingram said on his website. “It’s kind of a concept record, but it’s a loose concept. There’s the late-night thing, and the travel, and then there’s the concept about not letting go of the important relationships, even if they’re not working. These songs are all about loving, troubled long-term relationships, whether it’s with the music business or my wife or my family.”
In his time singing country music, Ingram has made a name for himself among country music stars.
Ingram’s song “Tin Man” with Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall won the Country Music Association’s 2017 Song of the Year, a Grammy Award for best country song in 2018 and the song of the year by the Academy of Country Music in 2018.
In 2008, Ingram was named the top new male vocalist by the Academy of Country Music. He won the Country Music Television Award for wide open country video of the year in 2007 and 2008.
Notable songs include “Wherever You Are” on the album “Live: Wherever You Are” which peaked at No. 1 on the U.S. Country Music Charts in 2005, “Barefoot and Crazy” on the album “Big Dreams & High Hopes” which peaked on the same chart at No. 10 in 2009, and “Love You” on the album “Live: Wherever You Are” which peaked at No. 12 in 2006.
The album “Live: Wherever You Are,” released under the label Big Machine Records, peaked at No. 33 on the U.S. Country Music Charts and No. 9 on the U.S. Heat Charts.
Topping other charts, Ingram set a Guinness record in 2009 for most radio interviews in one day when he was interviewed 215 times.
Music on Main will continue July 6 with the Black Dirt Boys.
