Welcome to The Back Forty where we highlight artists who might walk the line outside of the country chart with their music.
There's no mistaking that voice when you first hear it… Mark Chesnutt is stone cold country. In 1990, Mark scored his first major hit "Too Cold at Home" and followed it up with the chart-topping "Brother Jukebox." And, then the hits just kept coming throughout the '90's…"I'll Think of Something," "Sure is Monday," "I Just Wanted You to Know…" are just a few of the number ones in Mark's song catalog. His style is synonymous with what's great about traditional country music.
These days, Mark keeps a busy schedule out on the road playing 100 dates a year for fans across the country and has recently found time to hit the recording studio. The first selection of that new music to hit fans is "When the Lights Go Out (Tracie's Song)." The beautiful song, which is the first release from Mark's own independent record label Nada Dinero Records, pays homage to Mark's wife of over twenty years Tracie.
Mark shares some great memories of the legendary George Jones and talks about his new music with Kix Brooks Radio's Donna Britt in this edition of The Back Forty. Plus, find out what Mark thinks of reality TV singing competitions and more.
