For anyone who is a ’90s country music fan, you know Mark Chesnutt was a prime staple of the genre in that era.
I mean c’mon, the man was a hit making machine back then, with songs like “Bubba Shot The Jukebox,” “Goin’ Through The Big D,” “Brother Jukebox,” “Too Cold At Home,” and more.
In my personal opinion, the guy was criminally underrated during the time, as his music had both humor, yet also a painful amount of sadness at the same time, basically combining the best of the two worlds of country music songwriting that makes the genre great.
With that being said, Chesnutt is back at it again, releasing Live at Cutters Vol. 2 live album.
Much like Vol. 1, the live album is a perfect compilation of some of the greatest country songs of all time, like Merle Haggard’s “Mama Tried,” Randy Travis’ “Deeper Than the Holler,” Keith Whitley’s “When You Say Nothing at All,” and a perfect mashup of Johnny Cash’s “I Walk the Line” and “Jackson,” and Elvis’s “Mystery Train” and “Tiger Man.”
And with that last mashup, Chesnutt may now own the best cover of “I Walk the Line” I’ve ever heard, as that opening line sounds like it came from the Man In Black himself.
