Jack Ingram joins fellow singer/songwriter, Sean McConnell by signing with Rounder Records!
Jack has recorded a new CD, Midnight Motel, which marks his eighth studio project, and his first since 2009′s Big Drums & High Hopes. (Holy crap, we didn’t know its been that long!) Midnight Motel will release in June, and was produced by Jon Randall.
According to Music Row magazine, Rounder Label Group COO Cliff O’Sullivan says, “Jack Ingram speaks from his heart, whether on a stage or in the studio. Midnight Motel is a return to the kind of raw songs and performances that made Jack fans from the early days of his career in Ft. Worth and all over Texas before becoming a nationally known artist in the past decade. We’re thrilled to have him join the Rounder Label Group family.”
Ingram will preview material from Midnight Motel at the South By Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, next week. He has a handful of appearances in Nashville over the coming months, including a live taping of the tribute show The Life & Songs of Kris Kristofferson on March 16.
His new label mate, Sean McConnell was signed in February and is one of the hottest writers in Nashville. He signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Publishing right out of college. We’re happy that he’s also a regular on the Texas touring circuit.
His songs have been recorded by Brothers Osborne, Eli Young Band, Martina McBride, Tim McGraw, David Nail, Brad Paisley, Randy Rogers Band and more.
We are super excited for these two and not to mention us fans!
