Mark Chesnutt At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
With over thirty singles landing in the Billboard Hot Country charts, eight Number One singles and eleven studio albums to his name, Mark Chesnutt has made a big impression on the country music community. Born in 1963 and raised in Beaumont, Texas, Chesnutt learned to love music from his father Bob, a signer and record collector. After his sophomore year of high school, he dropped out of school to play with his father in clubs in Southeast Texas. When he was seventeen, he went to Nashville with his father to begin recording. For the following ten years, he recorded on small regional labels in the house band for local Beaumont nightclub Cutters. His traditional style began gathering him his soon-to-be large fan base.
