2006: The Year Jack Ingram Blew Up

I’m not a big fan of country music, especially contemporary country music, but too many things have popped up about Jack Ingram in the last 6 months or so to avoid mentioning him. According to Andy Langer’s piece on Ingram from the Austin Chronicle in November of last year, Ingram moved to Austin from Dallas in the summer of 2005.

News8Austin has a wrap up about Ingram’s #1 singles and his 5th consecutive appearance at the ACL Festival this year. As an aside, Wikipedia doesn’t seem to have him listed for 2002, but Langer picked him as a Sunday Sleeper that year. Wikipedia wrong? Shocker.

As if all that weren’t enough, iTunes is featuring his version of “Auld Lang Syne” as a free download this week, so put that new iPod to use and ring in another year of Jack Ingram country dominance while I run screaming in the other direction.
