Ridin' High... Again (Beat Up Ford Records)

Texas Platters

Jack Ingram draws direct lineage in calling out Jerry Jeff Walker's 1975 charting platter Ridin' High on his 10th studio LP. An aptly frolicking follow-up to 2016's stellar, low-key Midnight Motel, its razor-sharpened covers of Rusty Weir's "Don't It Make You Wanna Dance?" Willie Nelson's "Gotta Get Drunk," and Guy Clark's "Desperados Waiting on a Train" lean easy against his own tunes and Miranda Lambert co-write "Tin Man."
