Music Review

Livin' or Dyin' (1997)

EW's GRADE
B

Details Lead Performance: Jack Ingram; Genre: Country

Jack Ingram comes to his major label debut, Livin' or Dyin', with an impressive clutch of raw-boned, Texas-style songs, good covers from Jimmie Dale Gilmore and Guy Clark, and more than a healthy reverence for coproducer Steve Earle, who stamped his sound over much of the record. In an age when soft rock passes for real country, Ingram is the s---kicker's revenge. B
