Big Machine’s Jack Ingram is bringing back his “Acoustic Motel” concept by releasing weekly videos, and EMI Nashville newcomer Troy Olsen has his own webisode series “Livin’ The Dream with Troy Olsen” on GACTV.com.
On his videos, Ingram is offering acoustic versions of his biggest hits, and surprising covers, such as Paramore’s “The Only Exception.” See it here.
“The whole Acoustic Motel idea is a tribute to all the time I spend on the road writing songs, usually in a motel room,” explains Ingram. “With these new videos I get to play some old favorites, or new songs that I just wrote and want to test out. I’m also having a lot of fun doing some covers…it’s nice to be able to surprise people a little bit…keep ‘em guessing.”
Ingram has also added a few more select dates to his Acoustic Motel Tour in November. The run kicks off Nov. 4 at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta.
“Livin’ The Dream with Troy Olsen” on GACTV.com features him talking about how he first got into music, how he accidentally discovered he could produce, and a multitude of other stories about his path to making music for a living.
Olsen has launched his new website at www.TroyOlsen.com. Fans can sign up to become a member of his fan club, the “T-Birds,” and get all the latest news and information on Troy. In addition to tour dates, news and information, the archived episodes of “Livin’ The Dream with Troy Olsen” can be found on TroyOlsen.com.
