Country music's Mark Chesnutt is hitting the road this year for a new tour and one of the stops on that tour will be right here in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Chesnutt had back surgery last year which sidelined the country singer for a few months but he is now recovered and is ready to hit the road and play for his fans and that includes you Southwest Louisiana.

Mark Chesnutt was born right down the road about 45 minutes from Lake Charles. He was born in Beaumont, Texas, and cut his teeth playing the honky tonks in Southeast Texas before signing his first record deal in Nashville in 1990 with MCA.
