“I love this business because I love every piece of making music, so it’s really easy for me to put my heart and energy into giving back to young songwriters,” says Ingram. “Writing songs is therapeutic, especially in the tough times when you’re figuring out who you really are, so I hope that I can offer some perspective to these artists who are just starting out. We all know that Texas is rich with talent and characters–think about how much fun I get to have helping them tell their story.”
