Reporter’s Notebook: Jack Ingram featured in magazine

Country music singer Jack Ingram, husband of Clovis native Amy Hensley, was featured in the June 2008 issue of People magazine.

The singer shared barbecue secrets and why the tradition is important to him, especially when he has been on the road touring his music. He is currently on tour with Martina McBride, according to the magazine.

The article included photos of Ingram, his wife and three children barbecuing. It also provided three recipes used by Ingram, and detailed instructions on how to create the dishes he serves to his family.

Ingram, who has made several appearances in Clovis, took home the 2008 Academy of Country Music Award for the Best New Male Vocalist held last month in Las Vegas, Nev.
