Mark Chesnutt and Joe Diffie
Inn of the Mountain Gods is bringing two of country music’s stars, Mark Chesnutt and Joe Diffie, Saturday, January 28th.
Between 1990 and 2002, Mark Chesnutt had his greatest chart success recording for Universal Music Group Nashville’s MCA and Decca branches, with a total of eight albums between those two labels. During this timespan, Chesnutt also charted twenty Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, of which eight reached No. 1. His late 1998-early 1999 cover of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”, in addition to topping the country charts, crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100. He has charted singles that were previously recorded by John Anderson, Don Gibson, Conway Twitty, and Charlie Rich. He has recorded in collaborations with Tracy Byrd, Vince Gill, Alison Krauss, George Jones, and others.
After working as a demo singer in the 1980s, Joe Diffie signed with Epic Records’ Nashville division in 1990. Between then and 2004, Diffie charted 35 cuts on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, including five number one singles: his debut release “Home”, “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets)”, “Third Rock from the Sun”, “Pickup Man” (his longest-lasting number one, at four weeks) and “Bigger Than the Beatles”. In addition to these cuts, he has 12 other top ten singles and ten other top 40 hits on the same chart. He also co-wrote singles for Holly Dunn, Tim McGraw, and Jo Dee Messina, and has recorded with Mary Chapin Carpenter, George Jones, and Marty Stuart.
Tickets start from $25 for Mark Chesnutt and Joe Diffie.
