iTunes Editors’ Notes

On his 1990 debut, Mark Chesnutt delivers his honky-tonk sounds straight up, without the usual pop chaser. Too Cold at Home presents the Lone Star State native as a no-nonsense country balladeer who avoids trendy gimmicks in favor of the genre’s timeless verities. Rather than coming across as a smooth-talking, Stetson-wearing lothario, he’s willing to bear his heartaches with a bemused smile. The genial Texas swing sounds of “Too Good a Memory,””Danger at My Door” and “Blame It On Texas” suit his retro-romantic persona especially well. He taps into the barroom bard tradition of George Jones, Webb Pierce and similar legends on “Brother Jukebox,” “Friends in Low Places” (done with more understatement than the Garth Brooks megahit version), and the outstanding title track. Chesnutt’s well-seasoned twang brings out the wry honesty of “Hey You There in the Mirror” and the rueful self-criticism of “Broken Promise Land.” Like good bourbon, Too Cold at Home has aged well, a testimony to Chesnutt’s unforced integrity and classic country style.

Customer Reviews

Does not get any better!!!

Mark Chesnutt is by far one of the most underrated stars in Country music. If you download only one song, choose "Broken Promise Land". It's is amazing.

PRETTY GOOD!

this is a pretty good album. he has a gr8 voice. but garth brooks sings "friends in low places" way better....

A very solid debut CD

"Too Cold at Home" contains two classic songs, "Too Cold at Home" and "Brother Jukebox." The rest is pretty good too, and Mark's interpretation of "Friends in Low Places" is quite a bit different than Garth Brooks' interpretation. Significantly, even the weaker cuts on the CD are worth repeated listens. This is a very good debut album (it holds up well fifteen years later) and also one of Mark Chesnutt's better releases. A good choice for fans of neo-traditionalist country music and for fans of 1990s hat acts.

Neo-honky tonker Mark Chesnutt parlayed a solid grounding in classic country into chart-topping stardom during the '90s.

Chesnutt learned both guitar and drums, and made his professional singing debut with his father's band at age 15 on the local club scene. He even dropped out of...
