Product Description

2009 album from the Country singer/songwriter including the single 'Barefoot And Crazy'. The title track of Jack Ingram's new album, Big Dreams & High Hopes, recalls the dreams of a Houston kid who envisioned a life onstage from the time he first played a guitar. And because Jack sees so many aspiring musicians on the road at his shows, it's become a priority for him to reach out. ''As a musician, it's important for me to reach out to those kids who pick up a guitar and want to play. If I could have had some access to the artists I listened to when I was in my teens, it would have saved me a lot of aggravation. When I see these kids backstage or out front in the autograph line, and I get to talk with them, I sure hope I can provide them with some kind of knowledge and insight that prevents them from banging their head against the wall in frustration while trying to pursue their dream. What I tell 'em is exactly what I've learned: it's not that scary: you just have to keep on doing it every day. Whether you play an instrument or not, I want people to listen to my music, get that release, and walk away with the resolve to continue pursuing whatever goals they may have.''

Review

Back story: This is the long-delayed, much-anticipated follow-up to Ingram's 2007 disc "This Is It." It was supposed to be released early this year, but Ingram the perfectionist pulled back. He told Great American Country: "I got to make it right or else it's not worth it for me."

Finest moment: Ingram was looking for perfection; he may have just found it. This album rocks from start to finish, with memorable moments, including the ingenious pairing of his gritty, raw vocals with those of the angelic-voiced Patty Griffin on the shimmering ballad "Seeing Stars." Fans will buy this for the California country rocker "Barefoot and Crazy,"his latest and career fastest-chart-climbing song (No. 11 last week). But they will find it hard to skip past everything that follows, including the guitar-driven "The Man in Your Life," the spirit-lifting midtempo title song, and the heartbreaking album-closing ballad "In the Corner." -- Arizona Daily Star

by Ken Tucker

Jack Ingram has graduated from the Texas circuit to the country mainstream in fine fashion, and his appropriately titled new release, "Big Dreams & High Hopes," will only help his star rise higher. Current chart-climbing single "Barefoot and Crazy" is already lighting up request lines and dancefloors, while the song "King of Wasted Time" paints a picture of desperation not easily forgotten. Other highlights include "Free," which finds Ingram echoing the best work of Glen Campbell , and his expressive vocals shine through on the stripped-down title cut. Ingram may be good on his own, but Patty Griffin's sweet harmonies on the enchanting "Seeing Stars" and Dierks Bentley's growls on Ingram's live classic "Barbie Doll" are welcome additions. On the latter tune, Little Big Town, The Lost Trailers, James Otto and Randy Houser make a fitting barroom choir. -- Billboard, August 14, 2009

Jack's previous music has been good, but this CD is wonderful. It shows his growth as a mainstream artist and performer. The music grows on me every time I listen to it. I love Free, Big Dreams, High Hopes, and Man in Your Life. I hope Barbie Doll becomes a single since so many longtime fans LOVE that song! Congratulations, Jack!

Even more so than with his last album, Big Dreams and High Hopes is a big disappointment. I have been listening to Jack Ingram since almost the beginning and it is sad to see the turn for the worse his music has taken in a bid to make it to the top of the country charts. The switch, however, hasn't been much of a success, and I think that is a good thing because after he gets dropped from the big label, he can start making new music that again truly reflect his talent. And of course, you can't blame Jack for taking a shot at a bigger paycheck: try and think of an artist who isn't guilty of it in at least some point of their career. As for this CD, Seeing Stars and Big Dreams and High Hopes are great songs, and as with This Is It, the last one in the set, is the best. In Your Corner offers reassurance that for Jack Ingram, his best music is still ahead of him. Download these three songs for sure, and if you are like me - a fan regardless, you will probably buy all eleven. And if don't own them already, buy his first five disks. They are all classics.

This is a must have CD done in classic Jack style with great vocals and hard hitting lyrics. A collection of mostly ballads and the summertime anthem "Barefoot & Crazy" along with the previously released "That's a Man". A remarkable remake of the old crowd pleasin' "Barbie Doll" is better than the original version. Any of the remaining tracks could be the next hit single ("Not Giving Up On Me", "Heartache" & "Man in Your Life" are personal favorites). For die hard Jack fans this is a great addition to his music collection and for those who have not listened to Jack before, this is a wonderful CD to start with. Great job Jack. Keep on keeping on.

This is a fantastic new offering by Jack Ingram. From the 1st song to the last there is an honest integrity to this CD that you don't see everyday.
Jack's vocals are great. My personal favorites are "Seeing Stars" and "Not Giving Up On Me".
This CD has something for everyone including a star-studded re-release of the famous "Barbie Doll" written by Jack and Todd Snider. This is a concert favorite.
Long time Jack fans and newbies alike will be happy they bought "Big Dreams and High Hopes">

I have been a fan of singer Jack Ingram since I first heard his song 'Love You'. His music keeps getting better and with this album I am not disappointed. There is not one song on his new album that I don't like.

His music is amazing and this CD is a must have.
