The Texas Music Scene goes way beyond geographical lines. "TXMS" is a half-hour, weekly live music & documentary series that features the best of alt-country, outlaw, Americana, and roots music. TXMS recently began its 11th season on the air in 70 markets across the US, and has won 22 Telly Awards, including 3 People’s Choice Awards. Each episode features multiple bands, songwriters, or solo musicians with both live performances and compelling, backstage conversations.
Hosted by award-winning artist Jack Ingram, The Texas Music Scene has built a fiercely loyal, passionate and engaged fan base over its 11-year history.
The television series' collective social media following reaches 350,000-plus followers liking and sharing the music & segments every day to the tune of over 71 million unique video views on YouTube to date.
The series is powered by a content-creating machine and features a wide variety of nationally recognized artists, including ACM, CMA & Grammy award winners, as well as legendary outlaw, blues, folk & traditional country music icons - all creating an attractive alternative to current mainstream country music.
Jack Ingram is a Texas-born country singer whose records have earned both critical and peer adoration, and spawned massive hit singles. Emerging in the 1990s with a slew of well-received but commercially inert outings, the modern-day honky-tonker didn't find major success until 2005 with the release of the single "Wherever You Are," which climbed to number one on the Billboard Country charts. "Love You," "Lips of an Angel," "Measure of a Man," and "That's a Man" kept Ingram in the Country Top 40 over the next five years, with "Barefoot and Crazy" giving him a second Country Top Ten in 2009. From that point forward, Ingram pursued an independent route, re-emerging in 2016 with Midnight Motel on Rounder Records, but a collaborative album with Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall called The Marfa Tapes brought him back to the top of the Country charts in 2021.
