Jacky Ward (born November 18, 1946, Groveton, Texas, United States) is an American country music artist. Between 1972 and 1982 he released four albums with Mercury Records, and charted more than fifteen singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles (now Hot Country Songs charts. His highest-peaking single, "A Lover's Question", reached No. 3 on the charts in 1978. In Ward's career, he recorded three duets with Reba McEntire, including McEntire's first Top 40 country hit, "Three Sheets in the Wind". After leaving Mercury in the early 1980s, Ward briefly signed to Asylum Records, releasing a cover of Ricky Nelson's "Travelin' Man" that year. Although he released four singles for the label, Ward never issued an album on Asylum, and left the country music business in the late 1980s.
