About the Artists

Critics have hailed Mark Chesnutt as a classic country singer of the first order. Some of the industry’s most elite entertainers, from George Jones to George Strait, echo that same sentiment. If you ask Chesnutt, he’ll tell you, “it’s the music and the fans that have kept me around this long.” Those fans helped his records climb the charts, earning him a spot as one of “Billboard’s Ten Most-Played Radio Artists of the ’90s.”

Husband and wife duo Thompson Square has reemerged in the music scene with their newest album called Masterpiece. This album is filled with all the passionate potency Thompson Square is known for, plus a fearless new range of sounds and personality. Pristine country balladry is joined by sandy reggae funk, fire-breathing arena rock and sensual R&B as the duo strive to be honest with each song’s creative genesis.
