For some strange reason, the term "gimmick"...

comes to mind here:

Jack Ingram better be in a chatty mood come Tuesday.
The country singer will try to break the world record for most radio interviews in 24 hours as part of a promotional blitz for his new album, "Big Dreams & High Hopes."

I guess that's all fine and good that he wants to do that, but it's a shame he and his record company feel like they have to resort to that. I know what they say about no publicity being bad publicity, but I sure do wish they didn't even feel like they had to try crazy stunts like this to get the music out there. I don't hold any animosity toward him for it, but it'd be nice if radio was more open to him and he could just do normal interviews.
