Mark Chesnutt Extends ‘Tradition Lives Tour’ Into 2017

Mark Chesnutt

Traditional country music fans, rejoice! Due to high demand, sold out shows and the success of his brand new album, platinum-selling country hitmaker Mark Chesnutt is extending his Tradition Lives Tour into next year. In celebration of his first album of all-new material in eight years, Tradition Lives, Chesnutt has hit the road to share songs from the new release, as well as his biggest hits, with concert-goers around the U.S. Tradition Lives is available on iTunes, Amazon and at MarkChesnutt.com.

Since rising to fame in 1990 with “Too Cold At Home,” Chesnutt has continuously cemented himself as one of the hardest-working performers in the genre, with nearly 150 tour dates booked each year. With 14 No. 1 hits, 23 Top 10s and four platinum albums, it comes as no surprise that fans continue to pile into clubs and honky-tonks night after night to see the traditional-minded country sensation perform live.

“There won’t be any hip-hop, bro-country, dancing around. It’s going to be fun. A lot of country songs, a lot of shuffle songs and Texas honky-tonk. It could get rowdy, but the music will always be there for you, right in your face,” says Chesnutt of the Tradition Lives Tour.

Fans will enjoy singing along to chart toppers like, “A Little Too Late,” “Gonna Get A Life,” “I’ll Think Of Something,” “Goin’ Through The Big D,” “It Sure Is Monday,” “Brother Jukebox” and “I Just Wanted You To Know.” Mark Chesnutt sticks to his roots on his latest project, featuring 12 new songs, all of which possess the classic country sound Chesnutt has been known for throughout the last three decades.

They say good things come in threes and for Mark Chesnutt fans that expression is ringing true. Chesnutt’s first album of new material in eight years (Tradition Lives) will be released July 8, and the lead single, “Oughta Miss Me By Now,” is garnering airplay across the country.

The new videos feature Chesnutt recounting his favorite songs and memories of the format’s biggest stars. In Episode One he describes the feeling of singing Ronnie Milsap’s “Houston Solution” live, long before Chesnutt had a string of hits of his own, which include “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing,” “It Sure Is Monday,” “Brother Jukebox,” “Going Through The Big D,” “Bubba Shot The Jukebox,” “Too Cold At Home,” and many more – making up his plethora of multi-platinum selling and top-charting hits. Episode Two is an emotional account of his relationship with the legendary George Jones.

“We just had a special friendship. We’d call each other all the time to talk about things. He gave me a lot of advice. And we sat around on the bus and sang. That’s my most treasured memory of George Jones,” says Chesnutt in the clip.

This week’s installment, out today, honors Merle Haggard. Chesnutt discusses an instance when Haggard invited him over to his house for a tour rehearsal with The Strangers, Haggard’s long-time band. Watch Episode Three here.

Also on YouTube, fans will find the lyric video for “Oughta Miss Me By Now.” The track stays true to his honky-tonk roots, showcasing the traditional country sounds that have kept Chesnutt selling out shows and earning Platinum albums throughout the last three decades.

Mark Chesnutt Set to Release 15th Studio Album this Summer

mark chesnutt

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.
