Mark Chesnutt Interview: Tradition Lives On

Mark Chesnutt Interview: Tradition Lives On


Mark Chesnutt could not have picked a more apropos title for his latest album, which happens to be called Tradition Lives. Because if you're wondering where traditional country music sailed off to, it's in the hands of the 52-year-old skipper from Texas, who adamantly refuses to bow to current trends in order to stay relevant.
Mark proves that notion on Tradition Lives, 12 tunes (with a bonus track included) that travel the familiar roads of heartbreak, cheating lovers and other hard-core country themes. There's even a swipe at Music Row with a song that Mark co-wrote, “Never Been to Texas.” And as a nice bonus, fans will hear traditional instruments like steel guitar, dobro and fiddle out front, not buried somewhere in the mix.
Tradition Lives, due to hit stores and online outlets July 8, was a few years in the making, as Mark describes. Mark, whose No. 1 hits include “Brother Jukebox,” “It Sure Is Monday” and “I Just Wanted You to Know,” is releasing the record as he celebrates more than 25 years in the music business (he made his chart debut in 1990). He talked about that milestone, the new album and other topics in a recent interview in Nashville.

Q: This is your first new album in several years. How long did it take to put this together?
M: We've been working on this for about three years. It actually started when we recorded four songs and we weren't real happy with them. So, it took a little longer to find songs that were real country songs. We found the next batch of songs, but then I started having trouble with my throat. I got all that straightened out. I didn't need surgery or anything. But I listened to songs for years. Some of them had been laying around for a long time and never been recorded. I think it's the strongest batch of country songs I've ever had. I have one, “Is It Still Cheating,” that was written by Jamey Johnson, Randy Houser and Jerrod Niemann. I remember when Jamey pitched that to me. I thought right then that it was my kind of song.

Q: There are no what people would call “bro-country” songs on the album. And you didn't try to rap either. Is it good to be in a position where you don't have to bend to trends?
M: Did you really expect me to rap? (Laughs). But yes, it's nice to be at this point in my career. I've been around so long that I have a core audience. They love what we're playing. If I had come out rapping or singing bro-country, I think that would kill my career. My fans wouldn't accept that.

Q: The song on the album “Never Been to Texas” sounds like a little slap at current country music.
M: That's kind of a dig at Music Row (Nashville). I co-wrote that a few years ago and I never cut it. Now is the perfect time to come out with it.

Q: Do you have any particular thoughts about what's going on in country music today?
M: It's not my thing and that's really all I have to say about that. It's just not the country music that I grew up with. There are people who like the new stuff and that's fine. But I have people ask me, when is country music going to come back around? I'm not sure I know. But there are still a lot of fans who like traditional country, thank goodness. They come to our shows every night.

Q: After 25 years, do you feel fortunate to still be able to do this?
M: Oh, yeah, it's great. I'm still pretty busy on the road and I hope I can get more dates on the strength of this new album. And I am really proud of this album. I believe it's the favorite one I've ever done because I got to pick every song. I had so much fun recording it.

NASHVILLE, TN (July 7, 2016) – Rising country newcomer Olivia Lane will release her self-titled EP on July 29 via Big Spark Music Group. The compilation includes her current single, “Make My Own Sunshine,” described as “vocally crafted to perfection” (#CM Chat) with “joyful lyrics” (RS Country), in addition to six new tracks.

Adia Victoria

Ob auf der großen Bühne oder im intimeren Rahmen, die in Nashville, Tennessee beheimatete Blues-Rock Newcomerin Adia Victoria geht mit aller Vehemenz und Aufrichtigkeit unter die Haut. “Ich möchte Ungesehenes beleuchten und Unaussprechliches zur Sprache bringen”, sagt sie, und spricht dabei stets die Wahrheit.
So auch neulich in den Redaktionsräumen des öffentlichen US-Radiosenders NPR, wo sie im Rahmen der “Tiny Desk Concerts”-Reihe und mit vierköpfiger Band drei Songs ihres kommenden Debütalbums “Beyond The Bloodhounds” live performte. Hier  gibt es den Auftritt zu sehen.
Ihre aufwühlende, fest im Blues verankerte Mischung aus Rock, Afropunk und Country bringt die 29-Jährige im Spätherbst auch auf Tour  nach Deutschland: 31.10. Berlin, Privatclub // 02.11. Köln, Blue Shell // 03.11. Hamburg, Hafenklang.

Grouplove

Sie sind ‘back in business’! Das weltweit umjubelte Quintett aus Los Angeles ist zurück und kündigt sein am 09.09. erscheinendes, drittes Album an. “Big Mess” glänzt erneut mit hymnischen Refrains und ansteckenden Hooks, die es hier  schonmal im offiziellen Album-Trailer zu sehen gibt.
Das neue Album wurde in Los Angeles und Seattle mit den Produzenten Captain Cuts (alias Ryan Rabin von Grouplove) und Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, The Shins) aufgenommen und verbindet ihre bilderreich erzählten Songs mit ausgeklügelter Produktion.
Im Herbst begeben sich Grouplove auf große Big Mess World Tour und machen dabei im September auch beim Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg (22.09.) sowie im Kölner Luxor (23.09.) halt. Die erste Single “Welcome To Your Life” erscheint bereits in der kommenden Woche, am 15.07.!

Valentina Mér

Die Offenburgerin stammt aus einer musikalischen Familie und stellt dies auf ihrer morgen erscheinenden Debüt-EP “Giant” eindrucksvoll unter Beweis. “Giant” heißt auch ihre erste, bereits veröffentlichte Single, die das Wesen der jungen Träumerin wundervoll zum Ausdruck bringt und hier zu sehen ist.
Lange hat man niemanden mehr gehört, dessen Gesang eine solche Sehnsucht, Zartheit, Melancholie und grenzenlose Weite offenbart. Ein halbes Jahr lang, reiste sie durch Australien und sammelte Inspiration für ihr bewegendes Songwriting.
Sie vereint die Klangwelt von Woodkid, die seelenvolle Stille von London Grammar und die tiefe Empfindsamkeit von Birdy –internationale Stars, mit denen sie keinen Vergleich scheuen muss. Live tritt sie u.a. beim Parklichter Festival (05.-07.08.) und beim AkustikOpen (22.-23.08.) auf.

Carla's Dreams

In mehreren Ländern Osteuropas katapultierte sich der Track ohne Umwege an die Pole Position der Shazam- und iTunes-Charts und peakte auf Platz #11 der Shazam-Global Charts. Das Video generierte bislang über 35 Mio. Views und ist nun hier   zu sehen.
Carla’s Dreams veröffentlichten 2014 in Moldawien ihr Debütalbum “DA.NU.NA” und landeten im Zuge eines Features auf INNAs “P.O.H.U.I.” ihren ersten großen Hit.

Klyne

Das niederländische Electro-Pop-Duo Klyne spielt derzeit hörbar in einer anderen Liga. Ihre Musik ist nächtlich, subversiv und ätherisch zugleich, während ihr Signature-Sound die Rückkehr der Emotionalität auf internationale Tanzflächen feiert und dabei gleichzeitig dem Mainstream den Spiegel vorhält.
“Lend Me Another Name” ist der zweite Song auf ihrer kürzlich veröffentlichten Single “Don’t Stop” und “dreht sich um die Schwierigkeiten eines Beziehungsabbruchs und den quälenden Zweifeln, die damit einhergehen”, verrieten die beiden. Das dazugehörige, kunstvoll-minimalistische Video gibt es hier zu sehen.
Am 17.07. performen Nick Klein und Ferdous Dehzad live beim Melt! Festival.
