"Jack Higg" (formerly know as Jack Higginbotham), spent the first 22 years of his life as a track and field athlete. After competing for Texas State University and Team San Antonio, Jack hung up his track spikes to pursue a career in music.
Jack’s passion for music started at the age of 13, singing in youth group at the La Vernia United Methodist Church and picking up his first guitar at 16. Growing up his biggest influences were Neo-Traditional Country Music Artists such as Garth Brooks, Dan Seals, Doug Stone, Rhett Akins, Doug Supernaw, George Strait, and many more. As Jack got older, artists such as Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard, Conway Twitty, Johnny Cash, and others also influenced Jack’s songwriting. Songwriting became something that Jack would never seem to have enough notebooks for. Now, at the age of 26 he is on the fourth year of a music career and is playing several dates a month and sparking media attention (see "press" tab).
In his short career he has already shared the stage with various Texas Music Artists such as Charlie Robison, Granger Smith, The Derailers and was the Featured Keynote Speaker and Performer at the Texas State University 2010 Freshman Convocation with over 5,000 people in attendance.
Jack’s debut album, "Roots", held on the Texas RMR Chart for 15 weeks, topping out at #18. The album's success has helped Jack and his band get booked for the 2013 Country Rendezvous Festival in Crappone Sur Arzon France. The Festival is among the biggest in Europe, averaging over 35,000 people in attendance each year. A March 2012 interview with Sean Green of the Irish Connection Radio in Coleraine, Ireland landed Jack as April 2012’s Featured Artist http://theirishconnectionradioshow.com/.
