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.''
