NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Top40 Charts/ Music
City News Media & Marketing) - Lofton Creek Records / Big 7 Records is pleased to introduce ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW from one of country music's finest music stylists, Mark Chesnutt.
Set to be released June 24, 2008, ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW features two Chesnutt co-writes, the return of long-time friend and "Chesnutt hitmaker," Roger Springer ("A Little Too Late"/"Thank God For Believers"), along with some of Nashville's best song crafters including Hank Cochran, Dean Dillon, Mark Nesler, Kerry Kurt Phillips, Tony Stampley and the late Keith Whitley. The product of Jimmy Ritchey [who produced Chesnutt's last two albums SAVIN' THE HONKY TONK/ HEARD IT IN A LOVE SONG], the CD is true-blue Mark Chesnutt in musical composition, lyrics and delivery.
"What makes Mark Chesnutt a success is that he's never departed from the music that brought him to the dance in the first place," Lofton Creek's Mike Borchetta introduced. "ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW is filled with musical narratives from personal experiences, classic country ballads and toe-tapping melodies. It's Mark Chesnutt at his best with an invigorating feel...reminiscent of the music that brought him to the forefront as a country music traditionalist and in keeping with the musical trends that make him a mainstay in the format today."
"Mark is singing better than ever. When he comes into the studio, he just 'sings,'" added producer Jimmy Ritchey. "He's one of the classic voices of our generation who continues to bring a 'breath of fresh air' to country radio. I'm honored to work with him. ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW is a CD I play for my songwriter friends and other recording artists with pride to say 'now, this is a country record!'"
ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW, shimmers with reflections of Mark's musical influences. "In addition to this being something altogether brand new for me, I wanted to incorporate the sounds of music that I loved growing up," Mark added. "So, before we even recorded a song, Jimmy and I really listened to each and every one to decide whose musical style we might pull from." Filled with overtones from Ray Price, Hank Jr., Waylon Jennings and Merle Haggard, ROLLIN' WITH THE FLOW is delivered in quintessential Chesnutt style and a "must-have" for any and all country listeners' music library or iPod.
Carrying the torch in the footsteps of George Jones and Waylon Jennings, Chesnutt plays nearly 100 dates a year. He has four platinum albums, five gold albums, 14 No. 1 singles and 23 Top 10 singles to his name; his trademarked voice has shaped the music of today's country music newcomers and the new country music generation.
The label has just released the second cut from the CD entitled "When You Love Her Like Crazy" (Tony Martin/Mark Nesler).
