Mark Chesnutt got his start in the honky-tonks of Beaumont, Texas. He learned from his father, Bob Chesnutt who is a singer, record collector and a major fan of classic country music. Playing alongside his dad, Mark embraced his father’s influence one set at a time. He soon began 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 broaden his exposure. When Mark was just seventeen, his father took him along to record in Nashville. 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 his 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 the most authentic and talented vocalists in country music. He won the CMA Horizon Award, which attracted the attention of country legend [and Mark’s greatest mentor] George Jones. George introduced him as “A boy from Beaumont, Texas who is the real deal”. That recognition and initial success opened the door for Mark to have the chance of a lifetime. He was able to do what he loved most—sing country music for country fans; this time, on a national level. “The first couple years, it was non-stop.” Mark says. “I can remember one time during a tour I didn’t step foot on the front porch for ten months, with exception of a day or a day-and-a-half. Then, it was right back out again.” Mark’s dedication paid off. He developed a true blue fan base. Fans, he confides, “are the reason for my success”. His fans helped his records to climb the charts one right after the other, making him one of Billboard’s Ten Most-Played Radio Artists of the ‘90’s. From the fun tempo “Bubba Shot The Jukebox” to the emotional ballad “I’ll Think Of Something”, Mark’s singles were some the decade’s most memorable. Mark is easily identified for his string of hits including “Brother Jukebox”, “Blame It On Texas”, “Old Flames Have New Names”, “Old Country”, “It Sure Is Monday”, “Almost Goodbye”, “I Just Wanted You To Know”, “Going Through The Big D”, “It’s A Little Too Late”, “Gonna Get A Life”, and one of his biggest, “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”, which held its position at the top of the charts for four consecutive weeks. Of all the recorded highlights Mark has enjoyed, they take a back seat to his first love. Mark Chesnutt lives to perform on stage. He has been out on the road doing just that since 1990. “I just make records because I want people to come see my show,” he says with a grin. “Recording music for folks to just listen to music is great, but I’ve got to be out there on stage making it.” Fans who have seen him perform agree. Mark is known as one of the industry’s hardest-working concert performers and his dedication to deliver live music is unsurpassed. He maintains a hefty tour schedule and a steady presence in front of his fans. Whether Mark Chesnutt’s new release is on the radio or his face is on the cover of a new CD, folks are always impressed by Mark’s talent as he does what he was born to do. “The clubs and honky-tonks are home for me; it’s comfortable and I’m always with friends,” says Mark. Mark has been married to Tracie Chesnutt since 1992. They are the loving parents of their sons Waylon, Casey and Cameron.
