He has too many hits to name them all, but I always appreciate this one that started his career; ‘Too Cold At Home’, which was written by Bobby Harden (Thursday 27 June 1935 – Tuesday 30 May 2006), was included on Mark Chesnutt‘s ‘Too Cold At Home’ (MCA Records, 1990), and reached No.3 on the Billboard country music singles chart in 1990.

It’s some real country music’
