iTunes Editors’ Notes
In his own relaxed sort of way, Mark Chesnutt is a hard country artist to the core. Savin’ the Honky Tonk finds him reverting to his traditionalist roots without rebel bluster or purist preening. Instead, this Lone Star veteran interprets a superior batch of material in the easy-going style that made him a radio favorite in the ‘90s. Backed by an A-list crew of Nashville players, Chesnutt is by turns funny, desperate, and seductive, cracking a smile and misting over in all the right places. He slides into his Southern Romeo mode on “Would These Arms Be in Your Way” (a duet with Lee Ann Womack) and lets his redneck flag fly on “Beer Bait and Ammo.” With songs like “The Lord Loves a Drinkin’ Man,” “Don’t Ruin It for the Rest of Us,” and the title tune, Chesnutt offers a toast to the longneck-tilting, heartache-nursing culture of beer joints across the U.S.A. Mark’s soulfully deep tenor is in top form — in “A Hard Secret to Keep,” he makes the word “paranoia” sound like sweet talk. Savin’ the Honky Tonk is a lovingly-done salute to barroom balladry, served up by an artist born to sing its praises.
classic style that died
This album is a true reminder of classic honky tonkin music. Its also a prime example of an incredible artist that just never conformed to todays lyrics and common stlye. Its sad to know this kind of style just isnt popular anymore.... Its great stuff
A TRUE GEM!
I was a casual fan of Mark Chesnutt's during the end of the 90's. It was painful for me as that kind of a fan to see him mirror Tim McGraw! (I really HATE big record companies! This CD was more than "A RETURN" for me! Every song is not only what Mark should be singing, but what country music should still be like! It's great music that doesn't rely on "power chords!" I would suggest this CD, look up the writer's and support them as well!!!

I love Mark Chestnut & his tunes lift me up at the end of a long day. Some make me laugh, some make me cry, but they are all good!
