Jack Ingram is the eponymous debut album by country music artist Jack Ingram. It was the first of three albums released by Ingram on the Crystal Clear Sound label in 1995. No singles were released from this album. Most of the tracks from this album were re-released on the compilation album Young Man in 2004 along with tracks from his second studio album, Lonesome Question.


The majority of the album's tracks were written by Ingram. The opening track "Beat Up Ford" would become Ingram's trademark song in his early career as well as the name of his back-up band. It would be re-recorded for his second studio album, Lonesome Question. The track "Make My Heart Flutter" would be re-recorded as "Flutter" on Ingram's 1997 album Livin' or Dyin'. The album also features several covers of classic songs. Merle Haggard's "Mama Tried" was first recorded by him in 1968 on the album of the same name. The album closes with covers of Willie Nelson's "Pick up the Tempo" from the 1978 album Waylon & Willie and Robert Earl Keen's 1989 song "The Road Goes on Forever".
