Country artist Mark Chesnutt will be treating Midnight Rodeo’s crowd to sounds from his honky-tonk legacy, which began with his 1990 debut “Too Cold at Home.” The album’s title track and “Brother Jukebox” generated a multitude of listeners for the new country artist.
At a time when the flash of pop country blinded many, Chesnutt served as a country troubadour who delved into more classic influences. The 2016 release “Tradition Lives” is Chesnutt’s 15th album, in which he again provides a classic alternative to the glitz of pop country. “Tradition Lives” features lively tracks worthy of a Texas two-step and heartrending ballads filled with emotion.
This latest release is a honky-tonk masterpiece that should please country fans, both seasoned and fresh. Midnight Rodeo’s electrifying, backwoods flair should provide the perfect environment for this show.
