Jack Ingram is set to release a new album titled Big Dreams & High Hopes on August 25th. The album was originally scheduled to be released early in the summer, back Ingram wasn’t happy with it, so he went back into the studio to perfect his work.

“I’m proud of this album like crazy,” says Ingram. “We started to put it out a few times earlier this year, but then I’d hold everything up and go back to the studio and tweak this or mess with that, but now I’m finally ready. There are a few rowdy barroom sing-a-longs on there and also a few songs that are meant to be listened to when you’re all alone…lots of long days and fun nights were spent making this one.”

The album’s lead single, “Barefoot & Crazy,” is skyrocketing up the charts. It jumped four spots this week, landing at No. 13. (We’ve got a feeling it will break the top 10 SOON! What a great summertime song!)

Fans are in for a few special treats on the album. Ingram pairs up with Patty Griffin for the song “Seeing Stars” and is joined by Dierks Bentley for “Barbie Doll.” Ingram also brought Little Big Town, Randy Houser, James Otto and The Lost Trailers (also known as The Little Big Lost Beat-Up Ford Funky Times Freedom Choir) to contribute gang vocals to “Barbie Doll.”
