2007 Icon Award

BMI announced that Willie Nelson will receive the “Icon” award during the 2007 Country Awards dinner, November 6 in Nashville. The “Icon” designation is given to BMI songwriters and artists who have had “a unique and indelible influence on generations of music makers.” That’s Willie for sure!

Jack Ingram & Miranda Lambert

Jack Ingram and Miranda Lambert will tape CMT’s Cross Country together. The episode will air on CMT starting Labor Day Weekend.

If you’re flying American Airlines this month, tune to the “Harvest” country channel and you’ll hear Jack. A profile on Jack is also featured this month in American’s Attractions magazine.

Jack Ingram will also be featured on United Stations Radio Network’s “Future Giants Part Two” special, airing the weekend of July 28 and 29.

The title cut from Miranda’s latest CD, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, apparently hit a nerve with fans, who’ve shared their personal experiences with her. Touched by this outpouring, she’s now providing a “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” booth outside each venue on the tour, where men and women alike can share their drama, both given and received, for the camera. In fact, the best ones are available for the entire world to see, posted at www.mirandalambert.com.
