 Episode Two is an emotional account of his relationship with the legendary George Jones.

This week’s installment, honors Merle Haggard. Chesnutt discusses an instance when Haggard invited him over to his house for a tour rehearsal with The Strangers, Haggard’s long-time band.

My Kind Of Country Single Review: Mark Chesnutt – ‘Oughta Miss Me By Now’
It’s always a good news day when you hear Mark Chesnutt has released new music. His first album in eight years is due next month, with the encouraging title, Tradition Lives, and in the mean time here is the first single.
Written by Tony Ramey and Trey Matthews, this is an excellent song about the aftermath of a breakup, loaded with irony. The man is missing his ex, and even kind of stalking her, but is making no actual effort to get her back. Yet he is surprised that she hasn’t come back to him. Plaintively he bemoans the fact that she doesn’t ring him, even though he admits he hasn’t tried calling her either. Somehow one isn’t surprised it’s not working out – but Mark’s emotionally compelling vocals make one sympathise with his pain regardless.
