Jack Ingram is staying busy on TV this week! He’s taking a break from his busy touring schedule to head out to L.A. to compete on “Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader?” Jack tells the story of how this appearance came about…

“It’s crazy how things in your life come full circle sometimes. Back when I was 17 years old, my first job was as a camp counselor and one of my campers was a guy named Blake Mycoskie, who is now the founder and the ‘Chief Shoe-Giver’ you see on all the commercials for TOMS. Blake was at one of my shows in L.A. recently, and we started talking about how we could partner up on a few things… So now here I am…about to prove to the world on national television that I am probably NOT, in fact, smarter than a 5th grader. I will be able to say that I helped my buddy put shoes on kids all over the world who didn’t have them before though, which is a lot cooler than knowing the capitol of Hungary! And if you don’t believe me, ask Kellie Pickler. I bet she’d be on my side!”

Jack’s TV time doesn’t end there this week… he’ll also make his first appearance on the “Tonight Show” this Friday, August 14, as well as appear on “Army Wives” this Sunday, August 16! His new album Big Dreams & High Hopes hits stores August 25.
