The Recording Academy Texas Chapter played host for GRAMMYs On The Road At Austin City Limits Music Festival during the festival's 10th anniversary from Sept. 16–18 at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. The Chapter conducted exclusive backstage interviews with country artists Jack Ingram and Nick 13.
Ingram discussed his songwriting process, career highlights and being the recipient of the Academy of Country Music's top new male vocalist award.
"The first time I heard my song on the radio was in 1993," said Ingram regarding one of the highlights of his career. "[It was] a song of mine called 'Drive On.' I'll never forget it. I pulled over [and] turned it up. It was just like in the movies."
Nick 13 discussed his songwriting process, self-titled debut solo album and advice for aspiring artists.
"I've been a professional musician for a little over 10 years," said Nick 13. "But it was initially from the punk underground and the world of rock. To be part of a label and be exposed to the Americana and country scene…there are a lot of differences between that world and the rock world."
