Congratulations to singer-songwriter Jack Ingram and Sony/ATV Publishing! The Texan star has signed a brand new publishing deal with Sony. Jack is currently working on a brand new album, due out later this year.
Jack has had three top 10 singles in his career, including “Barefoot And Crazy.”
Do Texans really ride horses to work? Run track in cowboy boots? Accessorize every outfit with a giant, rodeo-style belt buckle? Do Texans really barbecue at every meal?
With a little help from Texas native and country music star Jack Ingram, H-E-B sets out to dispel some famous myths about the Lone Star State and find out what really makes a “True Texan.” The 60-second commercial debuts on Super Bowl Sunday followed by a series of social media “True Texan” Twitter contests using the hashtag #truetexan. A sneak preview of the commercial can be previewed on January 30 via heb.com/truetexan, along with more information on the contests.
The commercial begins with Jack Ingram — radiating Texas charm, of course — asking viewers if they really believe all these silly myths about Texas. In the end, there’s one myth that rings true. When Texans are away from the Lone Star State, they miss their H-E-B.
“This is something we hear from our customers all the time,” said Cory Basso, H-E-B Group Vice President of Marketing and Advertising. “No other retailer can compare to H-E-B when it comes to connecting with our customers and treating them like family. For our Super Bowl campaign, we wanted to show that shopping at your neighborhood H-E-B is part of what it means to be a True Texan, but do it a fun and entertaining way.”
After the Super Bowl 60-second spot debut, the ads will go into regular rotation and will air throughout February, and can be viewed during other high profile programs such as The Grammy Awards. The campaign will also feature a strong social media component to include promotions, contests and interactive content on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to find out what makes a “True Texan.” Viewers have the chance to win barbecue grills, outdoor furniture, H-E-B gift cards and much more.

Jack Ingram is donating his time and talent to help the next generation of music makers. We’re not necessarily talking about the next wave of music stars, but simply giving kids the opportunity to be involved with music.
On February 15, Ingram will be headlining the “Grounded In Music” benefit concert in Austin, Texas. The acoustic show, along with an accompanying silent auction, will raise funds to help provide music lessons and instruments for underserved kids at the Boys & Girls Club in Austin. Singer-songwriter Hayes Carll will also be performing at the event, which will be held in Austin’s Gibson Guitar showroom.
We’re still waiting for Jack to announce a new string of tour dates. but in the meantime two of his songs are making special appearances. His previously unreleased “Miss You” is featured on the new Hearts Across Texas compilation album. Plus, his version of Waylon Jennings’ “Bob Wills is Still the King” is on The Music Inside: A Collaboration Dedicated to Waylon Jennings, Vol. II. Both albums are available now.

Sometimes you have to travel the world to find your way home. Such is the case for Matt Dunn.
The 28-year-old grew up in a military family that had him crisscrossing the country. His stops included Hawaii, Virginia, Michigan, Indiana and California. When it came for his own time in the service, a stint in the Army took him overseas to Iraq.
Music was part of his life in the Middle East and when he came home, it became his career calling . His passion for music brought him to Texas, where he’s honing his craft in the Dallas/Ft.Worth area.
In our interview with the up-and-coming artist, we found out the unique way he joined Jack Ingram, the inspiration he took from a technology titan and one of the best answers ever for who he would like to tour with.
While in Iraq did you have your guitar with you and, if so, did you keep everyone entertained?
It’s time for our “Video Picks of the Week.”
This week’s music video is Jack Ingram, “Lips Of An Angel.” The song was originally sung and made popular by the rock band, Hinder. Ingram later gave the song his own spin and earned himself a country hit with his version. The track served as the lead single off of his album, This is It.
I have always enjoyed Ingram’s version and it introduced me to his music back in 2006.
Here is his website: http://www.jackingram.net/.
