Jack Ingram Is “Ridin’ High…Again” With New Album Set For April 26th

Everyone’s favorite Texas roots singer/songwriter Jack Ingram today released a new single, “Where There’s a Willie” and announced that “Ridin’ High… Again” will debut on April 26th. While “Willie” is set to turn into a sing-along in every saloon in Texas, for now, fans can pre-order the album and get “Where There’s a Willie” as an instant grat track on iTunes.

“Ridin’ High…Again” is as rollicking as it is a reverent tip-of-the hat to Jerry Jeff Walker and Walker’s classic album, Ridin’ High. The album is the first since his acclaimed, Americana-tinged Midnight Motel and this one sounds like the forty-eight-hour party it came from; Jack and co (including Texas legend Charlie Sexton on guitar) recorded it over two days at famed Arlyn Studios in Austin, TX.

Like any great show, the thirteen tracks on the album mix up the new with the known. Half the songs on “Ridin’ High…Again” cover Texas greats like Guy Clark’s “Desperados Waiting For A Train,” Kris Kristofferson’s “Jesus Was a Capricorn,” and Willie Nelson’s “Gotta Get Drunk,” as well as songs by Hayes Carll, Rusty Weir, and Keith Gattis. The other half are Ingram’s own, including co-writes with his long-time collaborator, fellow Texan and award-winning songwriter/musician Jon Randall Stewart, Todd Snider, and Miranda Lambert, including the 2018 Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year, “Tin Man,” which Jack wrote with Lambert and Stewart.

As a veteran of the Texas music scene, Jack is known as an exhilarating live performer. He’s released six live albums and “Ridin’ High…Again” will be his 10th studio album. Jack has been honored by the Academy of Country Music with Awards for both Top New Male Artist and Song of the Year and he’ll be riding high…again on tour throughout 2019.

As was recently been announced, Jack Ingram is also the new host of Texas Music Scene, the syndicated TV show featuring Texas-based artists in over 80 markets.

“Where There’s A Willie”

Where there’s smoke, you’ll find fire

Where there’s fire, you’ll find a crowd

Where there’s people, there’s a party

Party people love it way, way loud

Where there’s a guitar, there’s a hippie

Where there‘s a hippie, there’s a song

Where there’s a song, there’s a singer

Singing ‘break your heart’ all night long

 

Where there’s a country band that’s playing

There’s a cowboy heart that’s breaking

Where there’s whiskey, there’s hope

But everybody’s gonna be drunk as a goat

 

Where there’s a night, there’s a day

There’s a will there’s a way

Down in Texas we have our own saying

 

Where there’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s Waylon

 

Where there’s an outlaw, you’ll find trouble

Where there’s trouble, you’ll usually find a girl

Where there’s a girl, there’s a guy at a bar

Who just can’t get over her

So baby if you’re thinking about leaving

Please, please baby give me one more kind of chance

Where there’s a river called the Guadalupe

There’s a green hall where we can dance

 

Where there’s a country band that’s playing

There’s a cowboy heart that’s breaking

Where there’s whiskey, there’s hope

But everybody’s getting drunk as a goat

 

Where there’s a night, there’s a day

There’s a will there’s a way

Down in Texas we have our own saying

 

Where there’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s a Waylon

 

Where there’s a country band that’s playing

There’s a cowboy heart that’s breaking

Where there’s whiskey, there’s some hope

But soon we’ll all be drunk as a goat

 

Where there’s a night, there’s a day

There’s a will there’s a way

Down in Texas we have our own saying

 

Where there’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s a Waylon

 

Where there’s a night, there’s a day

There’s a will there’s a way

Down in Texas we have our own kind of saying

 

Where there’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s Willie (there’s a Willie!)

There’s a Waylon
