Jack Ingram's first single for the Big Machine label, "Wherever You Are" landed at No.1 on Billboard's country singles chart. That accomplishment was quickly followed up with the hilarious "Love You," which also ascended into the Top 10, as well as both songs' videos reaching #2 and #1 respectively on CMT.
Ingram bounced between independent and major labels, none of which exposed him to the masses. A critic's and musician's favorite he mostly remained until Ingram partnered with manager George Couri of C.S.E. who recognized the power of Jack's appeal and continually growing fan base. The decision to sign with Scott Borchetta and Big Machine in mid-2005 completed the team-and the hits started coming.

I've become a father, three times over, and have experienced the seismic shifts associated with that-coming to terms with yourself, the central figures and the defining moments in your life." he says. "My records in the past paralleled my growth and maturity and This Is It is a further reflection of that. This is what I've been going through and what I've been doing."
