Jack Owen Ingram (born November 15, 1970) is an American country music artist. He has recorded seven studio albums, and has released more than a dozen singles to country radio. Although active since 1992, Ingram did not achieve significant mainstream attention until the late 2005 release of his single "Wherever You Are". A Number One hit on the Billboard country charts, this was the first of five Top 25 hits for him, as well as the first Number One hit for any act on the Big Machine Records label. This song was followed by "Love You" at #12, a cover of Hinder's "Lips of an Angel" at #16, "Measure of a Man" at #18, and "Maybe She'll Get Lonely" at #24.
In 2005, Ingram signed to the independent record label Big Machine Records. Under the Big Machine banner, Ingram released a predominantly live album entitled Live: Wherever You Are. His first single release on that record label, "Wherever You Are", became Ingram's first top 40, and later his first Number One single on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, and the first Number One for any act on Big Machine. "Love You", the only other studio track on Live: Wherever You Are, was also released as a single, peaking at #12 on the charts. This song was also recorded by Trent Summar & The New Row Mob (whose frontman, Trent Summar, co-wrote it) on their 2005 album Horseshoes & Hand Grenades.
In late 2006, Ingram released a cover of Hinder's song "Lips of an Angel". Ingram's cover peaked at #16 on the country charts "Lips of an Angel" was the lead-off single to This Is It, his second album for Big Machine. This album also produced the #18 "Measure of a Man" (a Radney Foster co-write) and the #24 "Maybe She'll Get Lonely".
He won the Academy of Country Music award for top new male vocalist on May 19th, 2008. Ingram also filled in for radio host Bob Kingsley on the countdown show "Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40" for the week of September 20-21, 2008.
