Mark Chesnutt Premieres Exclusive Merle Haggard Tribute Video


Country traditionalist Mark Chesnutt cites several of country’s most loved legends as influences on his successful career, and Merle Haggard is at the top of that list. To pay tribute to Haggard’s life and music, Chesnutt has released an emotionally charged tribute video, available exclusively on Rolling Stone Country.

The video features Chesnutt’s rendition of Haggard’s “There Won’t Be Another Now,” from the 1978 album I’m Always On A Mountain When I Fall. Featured as a bonus track on Chesnutt’s brand new project, Tradition Lives, “There Won’t Be Another Now” also doubles as a nod to songwriter Red Lane, who passed away in 2015.

Produced by Jimmy Ritchey and released by ROW Entertainment, Tradition Lives is Chesnutt’s first album of all-new material since 2008. The aptly-titled project further establishes Chesnutt as a torch-carrier for traditional country music, as he strives to stay true to country’s roots in a time of great change the genre.
