Mark Chesnutt’s personal integrity combined

“Mark Chesnutt gave honky-tonk music back its soul,” noted
music critic Robert K. Oermann. “When Chesnutt appeared on
an arid musical landscape back in 1990, I dubbed him the hillbilly
messiah.” Oermann stated. “I still feel that way today and I’ll feel
that way decades from now.”

Now, some twenty-odd years later, Mark Chesnutt marches on to
preserve and honor the splendid works of the sculpturing
forefathers, George Jones and Waylon Jennings, to bring music
from the honky tonks right back to where country music began.

learning from his father, Bob Chesnutt, a singer, record collector
and major fan of classic country music. Playing alongside his
dad, Mark embraced his father’s influence one set at a time and
to begin making a name for himself. Mark sang covers by Lefty,
Merle, George and Waylon to develop his unmatched crowd-
pleasing rapport and his authentic country style.

Bob Chesnutt often traveled to Nashville to record and to
broaden his exposure. He began taking Mark along to record
when he was just 17. After nearly a decade of recording on
regional labels, word got out about this young country vocalist.
Music Row executives came to hear Mark on his own Texas turf
and recognized the depth of Mark Chesnutt’s raw talent. In
1989, he was signed to MCA Nashville and his list of accolades
tells the rest of his story. With the release of his first single “Too
Cold At Home,” Mark established himself as one of country’s
most authentic and talented vocalists. He won the CMA
