Mark Chesnutt Set To Release His 15th Album “Tradition Lives”

Traditional country singer Mark Chesnutt, who enjoyed hits with “Going Through the Big D” and “”Brother Jukebox,” will release his 15th studio album, “Tradition Lives,” on July 8 on Row Entertainment.
This is his first disc of all-new material since 2010’s “Outlaw” and was produced by Jimmy Ritchey, who Chesnutt has worked with 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 honky tonkers and a tribute to the late Merle Haggard and 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.

A native of Beaumont, Texas, Chesnutt began his run up the charts in 1990 with “Too Cold At Home,” and has had 8 number one hits, including “Gonna Get a Life,” and “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing.” He has earned one Gold album and four Platinum albums.

The track listing is:
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
