  1. I had the privilege of meeting Mark Chesnutt, soon after “Bubba shot the Jukebox” became a household song for the world at large. I met him backstage at Billy Bob’s Texas, in Fort Worth, where I had been sent backstage tickets by his manager and I sat on-stage during his concert at Billy-Bob’s Texas, which was huge! I was impressed first, by his talent, and his commitment to remaining true to Country music, and second, by his generosity and genuineness.
    While backstage, I quietly awaited “my turn” to speak to him, after what had to be an exhaustive concert, and while I waited, I watched. This man, this singer, while wildly popular in this part of the world, took out time after the concert, not to first be greeted by his adoring fans, but to give some calm, one-on-one time to a special needs fan and who I assumed to be this young man’s family, speaking with them, putting his arm around them, taking photos, and visiting in general. All the while, the chaos that was around us in that backstage room, where the beer flowed freely and there were plenty of “takers” who wanted to say that they “knew” Mark Chesnutt; he gave his time, as much as these people wanted or needed, devoted his entire attention to them, listened to what they had to say. and more than that, heard what they were saying – and never wavered a single second from their attention. After those special needs people left, and Mr. Chesnutt greeted others who seemed to be there for the party, Mark Chesnutt came over to me and my husband, who waited patiently, observing, and talked to us about our reason for being there. He didn’t allow himself to be interrupted by all the hoop-la that was going on backstage. He devoted 100% of his attention to whomever he was addressing or listening to at that moment.
    I knew at that moment, that this was a man of great moral character who knew the value of people, the value of those who purchased his music albums (CDs), and who wouldn’t ever compromise who he is for what someone else thought that he ought to be…
    Mark Chesnutt gave me, from his bus outside, an autographed stage hat, the brim of which has broken slightly due to the extreme amount of sweat and the fact that when he tipped his hat, it cracked, and he gave me an autographed stage shirt…the one pictured on “Too Cold at Home,” for me to auction off so that I could raise money for a little girl who needed a heart-lung transplant. I walked right up to the very door of his bus while he went inside and retrieved these things – so that a little girl might have the surgery that would save her life.
    Could he afford to give away a Resistol hat and a stage shirt? Sure. Did he have to take the time when he was so clearly exhausted from performing, so that someone else could benefit besides himself? No. He didn’t have to. But he did. That’s who Mark Chesnutt is to me.
    The auction was unsuccessful because people thought I ought to raffle the items away for free. The sheer greed of people made me ill. I still have that stage hat from Mississippi (or was it Missouri) and that stage shirt that he signed in blue Sharpie for me. I’ll never forget the caliber of person that handed those things over to me – a complete stranger – without question.
    If I could, I would meet him once more, to tell him what an outstanding man he is – what a “Christian” acting man he is, whether he’s a Christian or not, he behaved as one. I credit it to him.
