Chesnutt Takes Live Show Across the Country to Support Aptly Titled New Project
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 30, 2016) – 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.
