Mark Chesnutt

Neo-honky tonker Mark Chesnutt parlayed a solid grounding in classic country into chart-topping stardom during the '90s. Born in Beaumont, TX, in 1963, Chesnutt grew up listening to his father's extensive country-record collection (Bob Chesnutt had been a locally popular singer who never hit it big, and thus worked as a used-car salesman). Chesnutt learned both guitar and drums, and made his professional singing debut with his father's band at age 15 on the local club scene. He even dropped out of high school for a time to pursue music, but later reconsidered and got his diploma; meanwhile, his father began taking him to Nashville for recording sessions. During the '80s, Chesnutt released singles on local labels like the San Antonio-based Axbar (where he also issued a full album, Doing My Country Thing) and the Houston-based Cherry. He also served as the house headliner at the Beaumont club Cutter's, where his band often featured future star Tracy Byrd. After around a decade of dues-paying, positive word of mouth finally helped Chesnutt land a record deal with MCA.

Chesnutt's debut album, Too Cold at Home, was released in 1990, and the title track became his first hit, climbing into the country Top Five. With a style that blended George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Bob Wills, Chesnutt went on to score four more Top Ten hits from the album: the number one "Brother Jukebox," "Blame It on Texas," "Your Love Is a Miracle," and "Broken Promise Land." By the time that string ran out, Chesnutt had finished his follow-up, 1992's Longnecks & Short Stories. It gave him four more Top Five singles in "Bubba Shot the Jukebox" (one of Chesnutt's signature songs), "Old Flames Have New Names," the chart-topping "I'll Think of Something," and "Ol' Country." Chesnutt kept his hit-machine status going on 1993's Almost Goodbye, which gave him three more chart-toppers in the title track, "It Sure Is Monday," and "I Just Wanted You to Know." 1994's What a Way to Live offered the number one "Gonna Get a Life" and the number two "Goin' Through the Big D."

For 1995's Wings, MCA briefly resurrected its Decca country imprint and made Chesnutt the flagship artist; while the album wasn't the hit factory of its predecessors, many critics dubbed it one of Chesnutt's most eclectic and consistent sets. Seeking to restore his commercial momentum, MCA issued Greatest Hits in 1996, and the new song "It's a Little Too Late" went all the way to number one. 1997's Thank God for Believers found Chesnutt back on MCA Nashville and produced a number two hit in the title cut. For 1999's I Don't Want to Miss a Thing, Chesnutt flirted with crossover material, namely the titular Diane Warren ballad that became a big hit for Aerosmith. Praised by many critics for its relative subtlety, Chesnutt's version topped the country charts for a month, and even reached the pop Top 20. Despite that success, the album's other singles didn't perform as well, and his 2000 follow-up album, Lost in the Feeling, was something of a flop in comparison to his past work. Chesnutt and MCA subsequently parted ways, and he signed with Columbia for 2002's Mark Chesnutt, which sold decently but didn't quite mark a return to past glories. That doesn't mean Chesnutt lost his audience, though, and he released Savin' the Honky Tonk on Vivaton Records in 2004, followed by Heard It in a Love Song from Cbuj Entertainment in 2006. Rollin' with the Flow appeared in 2008, followed by 2010's Outlaws, which featured covers of outlaw country classics. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi

This freaked me out This isn't fake. Apparently, if you copy and paste this on ten comments in the next ten minutes, you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry This freaked me out This isn't fake

Went to Cutters many many times to enjoy his music.
Brings me back to when I was a kid. Very gifted singer! Wish time didn't go so fast. Country just ain't the same as it was.
Love this song!!
Yeah, Mark Chesnutt is a great country music singer. Savin' the Honky Tonk is a so good.
This is a kevin fowler song

Mark chesnutt. Is amazing
Saw him in Cade, Louisiana in the early 90s.....neve r forgot that night...he was fantastic!!! ! !
bobbymaine
Saw him recently at The Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh. The best live music I've EVER heard!
wanted to marry him for along time he has wrote and sung to my soul for years love this man let it rain oooo so sexy
''Too cold at home'' i love that song
My wife and I really like his good old country music, we have some of his cd's . His type is not around anymore, glad Strait and Jackson are still around. Wish Mark could continue to record more country music. Only a few of the new country singers follow the good old country tradition. We live in Austin, Tx and when go through Beaumont we think of Mark and George Jones the possum.

Love, love his music. Been a fan since the 90's. He is my favorite country artist!
Like his style.
VERY GOOD BALLADS!
cmkmass
the last new artist i remember who actually gave a s**t about this music. i miss him. we need guys like this but "country music" radio kills them. STOP LISTENING TO THAT S**T!!!
Agree with jkaplan's comments. We saw Mark Chestnutt in concert a couple of summers ago and enjoyed his talents
jkaplan21
They don't make them like this anymore. I love listening to guys like Mark but then it also kills me that this kind of music isn't popular anymore. Kind of bitter sweet. Pop country is just absolute garbage.
Great singer, but missing my favorite song & CD "Whereever you are"
dan.benson
sounds like Garth Brooks

Mark Chestnut has a very smooth voices, I am not a big country music fan, but I love his music.
Mark Chestnut keeps alive the sound of traditional country music, his music is not cluttered with instrumentat i o n .
Being a dancer I appreciate how many of his songs you can Two-Step to.

He is awesome! Mark Chestnut is real true down to earth country music!!
jer8908
He's the Waylon of his generation. A strong artist with a great voice who probably won't ever get the appreciation he deserves. He's the best live performer I've ever seen. Here's to you Mr. Chesnutt (raising a cold one), thanks for the MT show last June.

This guy's not one of those big ego snobs like so many who don't have the time for us small towns. Once made two buses of crew wait while he chatted with us small town warm up band musicians. Nice guy.
I like the one he sang with waylon jennings. his songs are really good and he to has a voice
showme
"Man in the Mirror" Great song!!!!!
He entertained me before he got his contract, just him and his guitar and a fiddle once and a while and he's still entertaining me today. Keep it up Mark. BJ
