Rhapsody Originals (EP, Exclusive)
by Jack Ingram
Released: Aug 2007
Label: Big Machine
So get this, country music fans. Jack Ingram and Taylor Swift nailed a killer duet on "Hold On" for their Rhapsody Originals session, and you can't listen to it anywhere but here. Their performance is so overflowing with romantic passion and taught with a believable tension that you have to step back and realize that these are just two professionals singing in the character dictated by the song's gripping narrative. Ingram's acoustic take on "Measure of a Man" out-Cougs John Mellencamp with small-town blue-collar sentiment. "Ava Adele" is another brilliant acoustic adaptation.
