After more than a decade of blazing a path across country music honky- tonks, bars and dance halls, as well as dues-paying on Nashville's Music Row, country artist Jack Ingram has much to be thankful for these days. Named the 2008 Top New Male Vocalist by the Academy of Country Music, thanks to his top- selling THIS IS IT! Album. Now Ingram is poised to release his newest CD, BIG DREAMS & HIGH HOPES. This 11-track CD release is autobiographical in that it represents the approach he's taken to his own career, including when it comes to his brand-new album.
