Jack Ingram’s Guitar Malfunction Turns Into Beautiful Acapella Performance

jack ingram

Jack Ingram turned a live TV snafu into a gorgeous acapella performance, proving this isn’t the beloved Texas-Country artist’s first rodeo.

To mark the release of his first new album in seven years, Midnight Motel (Rounder Records), Ingram visited Good Day Austin/Fox 7 to perform and discuss this evening’s in-store at Waterloo Records.

The snafu occurred when Ingram’s guitar string broke right in the middle of his performance of…wait for it…“Nothing To Fix.” The irony of the moment quickly made for an even more poignant moment as Jack rolled with the punches and carried on acapella. The new song is about being cautiously optimistic and making the best of a troubled, and loving, relationship. Therefore, what could have been a live TV disaster became an even more meaningful delivery of the song.

Jack Ingram Releases New Video For, “I’m Drinking Through It”

Jack Ingram’s new video for “I’m Drinking Through It” premiered as part of Texas Monthly’s Music Monday online series and is now part of CMT’s video rotation. It’s not only the first single from Ingram’s upcoming album Midnight Motel, it’s his first new music in the seven years since his departure from Big Machine Records.

:

“After being on the planet for a long time – and on the road for half of that – I’ve learned a few things…” said Ingram, with his signature sly smile. “I am not suggesting that ignoring your problems is always the best way to solve them…I’m just saying that maybe sometimes it is!”

The video, directed by Michael Tully and co-starring Heather Kafka, explores a tumultuous relationship. As the two struggle, viewers recognize the type of frustration that can only be caused by love. Exasperated, Ingram sings, “sometimes you’re thirsty and sometimes you just need a drink.”

After passionate squabbles and a lot of storming around, Ingram downs a few rounds and takes to the stage. As he sings, both realize that sometimes taking a step back provides perspective. Finally, Ingram recruits the crowd to sing the chorus, “I’m drinking through it,” as the lovers reconcile. (For now.)

“I’m Drinking Through It,” is the first single on Midnight Motel, Ingram’s first album in seven years. Midnight Motel is a Texas-tinged guided meditation through liquor-fueled melancholy. It’s a night at the bar with Ingram on stage – songs, shots, spoken riffs and all.

“Ingram’s is a singular voice, an artist adept at sharing the broader insights that reflect on the minutiae of everyday experience,” says writer Lee Zimmerman for Elmore Magazine. “In a very real sense then, this is Ingram’s most authentic effort to date, and not surprisingly, it’s also his best.”

On Sunday, June 12th, Ingram and his band will perform at CMA Fest. Their set is scheduled at 11:50 AM on the Chevrolet Cruze Park Stage, which is located at The Park between the Hilton Suites and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.

Ingram has announced a series of new dates for this summer, including stops at legendary honky-tonk Billy Bob’s in Ft. Worth, TX and the Nutty Brown Amphitheatre in Austin, TX. He has also been confirmed as a performer at the Americana Music Festival in September.

More tour dates will be announced in the coming weeks.

Toby Keith, Hank Williams Jr., Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Lee Ann Womack & Jack Ingram Added to Kris Kristofferson Concert

Kris Kristofferson

Music stars Toby Keith, Hank Williams Jr., Martina McBride, Jennifer Nettles, Lee Ann Womack and Jack Ingram have been added to the all-star lineup at The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson on Wednesday, March 16, at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. The all-star concert event taping pays tribute to the legendary singer-songwriter and actor.

The new additions to the lineup join previously announced performing artists Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley, Ryan Bingham, Rosanne Cash, Eric Church, Emmylou Harris, Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, Darius Rucker, Trisha Yearwood and Kris Kristofferson. Kristofferson will perform with select music stars throughout the night creating extraordinary musical moments. Additional performers will be announced in the coming weeks.

A new block of tickets in all price ranges, starting at $75, are on sale at Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, at all Ticketmaster locations and at the Bridgestone Arena box office. Citi is the official credit card of The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson.

Kristofferson, a Country Music Hall of Fame member, is considered a true poet who helped modernize the genre with songs such as “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down,” “Help Me Make It Through the Night,” “Me and Bobby McGee” and “Lovin’ Her Was Easier.” These are the songs of heartbreak and despair, of love and loss, of yearning and hope. These are the songs so honest that we adopted them as our own. They are the songs of a life led unlike any other: An All-American athlete, Golden Gloves boxer, Army Ranger, helicopter pilot, singer-songwriter, social activist, humanitarian and movie star.

Keith Wortman is creator and executive producer of the show. Grammy Award-winner Don Was will serve as music director and will lead an all-star band backing the performers at this incomparable concert event taping. The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson will be filmed and recorded for multi-platform distribution throughout traditional media (worldwide broadcast, music and digital).

“Kris and his songs mean everything to music artists and fans alike. They have inspired us to remain true to ourselves in every possible way. The addition of these incredible artists to this lineup is a testament to that,” Wortman said. “This is an experience everyone will want to be a part of.”
