It was on this day in 2009 when Jack Ingram set a Guinness Book of World Record for most consecutive radio interviews in 24 hours, having done 215 consecutive interviews for 5 minutes each in support of his album, Big Dreams and High Hopes!
But did you know he did it under a bridge in Brooklyn, NY? “I was laughing because every time they’d start the interview, they’re like, so you’re in a tent under the Brooklyn Bridge. I’m like, yeah, exactly where my mom said I’d be if I went into the music business.”
It all started at 8 a.m. on a Tuesday with KSCS in Dallas, Fort Worth. And talk he did, with radio stations across America and in parts of Europe and Australia. Finally, at 7:55 a.m. on Wednesday, his last interview was with CMT Radio. The record was broken and he made it! Don’t forget his new album Midnight Motel comes out tomorrow!
