Sept. 4, 2009 — Jack Ingram is currently lodged among Billboard’s Top 10 country singles with "Barefoot And Crazy," and he’ll pop in to chat with host Nan Kelley about it on this week’s edition of GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown.

The song appears on his new album, Big Dreams & High Hopes, which provided a backdrop for a huge push to set a new world record. Beginning at 8 a.m. Aug. 25, the day it was released, Jack did 215 interviews in a 24-hour period, a mark authenticated by The Guinness Book Of World Records. By the end, it’s a good bet that almost all the questions were the same: "How many more interviews do you have to do?" and "How are you holdin’ up?"

Once it was over, Jack was cleverly succinct: "I have nothing left to say."

The album includes guest appearances by Dierks Bentley and Patty Griffin. To help in its promotion, Jack’s set to go on tour this fall with Gary Allan and the Eli Young Band.
