Washington, DC - Aug 16, 2010 - The 2010 Radio Show will feature a live performance by country music artist and songwriter Jack Ingram. The performance will take place during the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner and Show, hosted by NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame inductee Ron Chapman. The performance will take place on Sept. 30 at the Grand Hyatt Washington hotel.
A Texas-born songwriter and performer, Ingram's slow and steady rise to fame began during college at Southern Methodist University, when he performed two Willie Nelson songs and one original tune at an open mic night. His charisma resonated with the audience, and shortly thereafter Ingram and his Beat Up Ford Band were performing at packed bars in Dallas and Houston. Ingram gradually became known as a talented singer and songwriter with sharp lyrics and a strong reputation as a live performer. Ingram has released seven albums since 1997.
Established in 1989 and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations and outstanding on-air personalities to recognize excellence in radio. Winners will be announced at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner and Show.
