When Jack Ingram won the 2008 Academy of Country Music award for “Best New Male Vocalist,” thousands of people in the audience had to be smiling to themselves about that whole “new” thing. They knew the thirty-something, steel-eyed veteran accepting his trophy on that stage in Vegas had been rocking roadhouses, theaters and stadiums relentlessly since 1997. He’d been celebrated by critics and fans of hard-core country music for more than a decade. As a Texas-born songwriter and performer, he’d been on the short list of next generation artists who could fill the boots of Lone Star legends like Willie and Waylon and the boys.
But the award did mean that Ingram, after trials and setbacks that would have buckled other artists, had at last matched the commercial success he’d always wanted with the integrity on which he’d always insisted. So he told the crowd with no small measure of pride and triumph that night that “big dreams and high hopes” can come true.
Now, as if to validate and amplify that truth, Ingram remains in the forefront of country music with the album Big Dreams & High Hopes, the seventh studio disc of his career and his third for the Nashville label “Big Machine Records.” Its eleven tracks range through the many facets of Ingram’s unique take on country music and songwriting.
“We are excited to be welcoming Jack Ingram, a legend in country music, to Mount Airy Casino Resort.,” Executive Vice President and General Manager, John Culetsu said. “With our recent AAA Four-Diamond award, we are continuing to exceed expectations and offering our guests an absolutely incomparable casino gaming experience, breath-taking scenery, golf course, fine dining in our five restaurants and state-of-the-art spa and resort accommodations,” added Culetsu.
