One of Billboard’s 10 most-played radio artists of the ‘90s, country music’s Mark Chesnutt will appear at the Carson Valley Inn on Sunday, July 22 in the up-close concert setting of the Carson Valley Inn’s Valley Ballroom.
Chestnutt’s stature as one of country’s true musical treasures is easily gauged — he has 14 No. 1 hits, 23 top 10 singles, four platinum albums, five gold records and he maintains his steady presence with a hefty tour schedule year after year.
Some of the many Chesnutt hits include “Too Cold at Home,” “Brother Jukebox,” “Blame It on Texas,” “I’ll Think of Something,” “I Just Wanted You to Know,” ”Gonna Get a Life,” “It’s a Little Too Late,” “Bubba Shot the Jukebox,” “Ol’ Country,” “It Sure is Monday,” “Almost Goodbye,” “Heard it in a Love Song” and more.
“Mark Chesnutt gave honky-tonk music back its soul,” offered noted music critic Robert K. Oermann. “When Chesnutt appeared on an arid musical landscape back in 1990, I dubbed him the hillbilly messiah.” Oermann stated. “I still feel that way today and I’ll feel that way decades from now.”
In a world that sometimes confuses style with substance, Chesnutt possesses both. Remaining true to himself as a traditional country artist while keeping the pace with the ever-changing country recording landscape, he has a knack for picking great songs and delivering them with his world-class vocals and real heart-felt emotion.
“I just make records because I want people to come see my show. Recording music for folks to just listen to music is great, but I’ve got to be out there on stage making it,” Chesnutt said.
Tickets for the July 22 Mark Chesnutt concert are $25 and are available at the Carson Valley Inn hotel desk or by phone at 775-783-6606.
Doors open for the 21 and over show at 7:15 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
