Jack Ingram finds light in dark times on the uplifting "Times Like These," the latest release from Bruce Robison's The Next Waltz series, a web series and multiplatform music delivery concept operated out of Robison's analog studio in Lockhart, Texas.
The song is a reminder of what's really important: family, friends and "big love and simple dreams."
"In times like these/ I dream of funky bars, cold beer and muscle cars/ And laughin' and jokin'," Ingram sings. "In times like these, old friends and enemies/ Come together, man, come on, please/ Life's just a good game of poker."
Ingram says he was inspired by seeing people around the world come together in unexpected ways.
"For the last three months I've seen more people being together in a positive way even though this is not something we would wish for," Ingram tells Wide Open Country.

The Texas-born Ingram released his self-titled debut album in 1995. His 2005 single "Wherever You Are," from his Live: Wherever You Are album, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The prolific singer-songwriter co-wrote Miranda Lambert's song "Tin Man" with Lambert and Jon Randall.
