Mark Chesnutt Set to Release 15th Studio Album this Summer

Fans of country music hit-maker Mark Chesnutt will want to circle the date of July 8th on their calendar as the traditional-minded singer will release his fifteenth studio album that day, aptly titled Tradition Lives.

Tradition Lives, his first disc of all-new material since 2010, was produced by Jimmy Ritchey — someone that Chesnutt says is a crucial part of his sound, having worked with him for years.

“He and I hooked up at a time when not a lot of people had a lot of faith in me anymore because I stayed ‘country’ when the industry was going the other way. I needed somebody like Jimmy who really believed in my kind of country music,” said Chesnutt.

Tradition Lives includes 12 new Chesnutt tracks, each with the pure honky-tonk sounds that have helped to make him one of the most revered and respected artists in the business. The album also includes a tribute to the late Merle Haggard and famed songwriter, Red Lane, “There Won’t Be Another Now.”

“A few years back, Jimmy Ritchey and I were at his home studio at about 2 a.m. talking about The Hag and his influence on us, and we thought it would be nice to add this song to the album as a tribute to him and to Red Lane. It’s just me with Jimmy on guitar. I hope fans enjoy it,” said Chesnutt.


Chesnutt continues to be a touring favorite, with close to 175 dates on his calendar – which is booked well into the latter part of 2016.

1. I’ve Got A Quarter In My Pocket
2. Is It Still Cheating
3. Lonely Ain’t The Only Game In Town
4. Oughta Miss Me By Now
5. Neither Did I
6. So You Can’t Hurt Me Anymore
7. You Moved Up In Your World
8. Look At Me Now
9. Losing You All Over Again
10. Never Been To Texas
11. What I Heard
12. Hot

Bonus Track:
There Won’t Be Another Now (Tribute to The Hag and Red Lane)

Tradition Lives is produced by Jimmy Ritchey and released by Row Entertainment. Row Entertainment is distributed by BFD through RED distribution.
