Saguaro Road Records is pleased to announce the release of Outlaw, Mark Chesnutt’s new collection of all-American, whiskey-soaked standards. From the label that has brought country music enthusiasts recordings from Patty Loveless, Tanya Tucker and Lonestar, Outlaw follows in the same vein, delivered by one of country music’s finest music stylists.
Set to be released on June 22, Outlaw features the songs of some of Chesnutt’s personal heroes and lifelong friends such as Billy Joe Shaver, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings (for whom his eldest son is named). Chesnutt recorded the album with producer Pete Anderson (Dwight Yoakam/Michelle Shocked/Tanya Tucker).
“I cut my teeth on this kind of music and it’s an opportunity for me to pay tribute to some of my biggest heroes in country music,” Chesnutt says.
“Mark Chesnutt put on a vocal display like I’ve never before seen in the studio,” Anderson said. “He stood in front of the mic and sang the whole record, from beginning to end, flawlessly [and in less than three hours]. We are all amazed at the results. There may be singers out there as good as Mark, but there are none better and, at this point in my career, I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with this caliber of talent.”
Chesnutt has four Platinum albums, five Gold albums, 14 No. 1 singles and 23 Top 10 singles to his name. Outlaw is his fourteenth studio recording and his first project out of L.A.
