Mark Chesnutt was born on Sept. 6, in Beaumont, Texas. As a torchbearer for traditional country music, Chesnutt arrived in Nashville in the early 1990s. His first single, 1990's "Too Cold at Home," marked a string of 12 Top 10 hits for MCA Nashville. Other hits include "Brother Jukebox" and "I'll Think of Something."
Chesnutt's early success was rewarded with the 1993 Country Music Association's Horizon Award. When he shifted to the revived imprint Decca in 1994, he landed several more hits including "It's a Little Too Late" and his remake of the Aerosmith hit "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."
Since then he's toured with Joe Diffie and Tracy Lawrence on the Rockin' Roadhouse tour and released an album on Columbia Records in 2002. Chesnutt released the album Savin' The Honky Tonk in 2004 on the independent label Vivaton. He returned in 2006 with Heard It in a Love Song.
He and in his family reside in Texas where Chesnutt continues to nurture the traditional honky tonk sounds that embody country music for him.
