✅ JACK INGRAM (host Bio & Links)
Jack Ingram's (https://jackingram.net/) music career spans over four decades and includes 18 records, 6 top #20 singles, including a #1 hit, on the Country Billboard charts. Most recently, in May of 2001, Jack, alongside fellow singer/songwriters Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall, released The Marfa Tapes. According to Lambert, The Marfa Tapes stems from a fruitful songwriting partnership that has already resulted in the 2018 ACM Song of the Year "Tin Man" (Ingram / Lambert / Randall).
Additionally, Jack is no stranger to the airwaves as a TV host of the Texas Music Scene, a half-hour weekly program that airs in over 70 U.S markets and has won 22 Telly awards and 2 People's Choice awards. In 2013, Jack teamed up with actor Matthew McConaughey and football coach Mack Brown to create an annual multi-day fundraiser, golf tournament, & concert, MJM. Since its inception, MJM has raised nearly $20 million for children's charities.
✅ STEVE EARLE (guest bio & links)
Steve Earle (www.SteveEarle.com) is one of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, a worthy heir to Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, his two supreme musical mentors. Over the course of twenty studio albums, Earle has distinguished himself as a master storyteller, and his songs have been recorded by a vast array of artists, including Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez, Emmylou Harris, the Pretenders, and more.
Earle's 1986 debut album, Guitar Town, is now regarded as a classic of the Americana genre, and subsequent releases like The Revolution Starts...Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007), and TOWNES (2009) all received Grammy Awards. Restlessly creative across artistic disciplines, Earle has published both a novel and a collection of short stories; produced albums for other artists; and acted in films, TV shows, and on stage.
He currently hosts a radio show for Sirius XM. In 2019, Earle appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which he also wrote a score that The New York Times described as "exquisitely subliminal." Each year, Earle organizes a benefit concert for the Keswell School, which his son John Henry attends and which provides educational programs for children and young adults with autism.
