Jack Ingram Rodeos Before Jetting To Cuba
March 31, 2009 at 7:33 AM (PT)
BIG MACHINE RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist JACK INGRAM recently jetted off to CUBA for a USO TOUR (NET NEWS 3/27), but before that braved a crowd of 4,000 for a show at the AUSTIN RODEO.
JACK said: "if you’re a TEXAN -- and I am -- rodeo is a big part of who you are. The traditions, the cowboys, the excitement of all of it. We play all kinds of places, and there’s just something about a rodeo crowd -- even on a THURSDAY night when they’ve gotta get up for work the next morning -- that’s unlike any other.”
After LYRIC STREET group RASCAL FLATTS were forced cancel their sold-out show last year at the HOUSTON RODEO, INGRAM walked out of an interview in NEW YORK CITY and was whisked away to an airport, so he could step in at the last minute.
"“There’s a real rush to being part of something like a rodeo,” JACK added. “Those guys are going for broke – and when you go out to play for their fans, you better be ready to hit it that hard, too!"
