    Well, thanks for putting them right up against each other!
    To me, Chesnutt is the real deal, the best honkytonk singer of the last quarter-century. (I leave out Randy Travis because he specialized in positive messages and rarely did a drinking song.)
    I think Lawrence sounded a bit like Chesnutt and had some decent radio hits, but they’re not timeless classics like many of Mark’s songs are.

    I liked the song from the first time I heard it in the last 1970s by Don Everly. Don’s version didn’t make the top forty but one of the local DJs liked the song and played it occasionally. It first showed up in my record collection of Keith Whitley’s posthumously-released album I WONDER DO YOU THINK OF ME , which was released a year or two before Mark Chessnut’s major label recording debut. Don and Keith are both better singers than Mark Chessnut but I actually prefer his version

    while I like both Mark Chessnut and Tracy Lawrence and I agree that Mark had the steadier career, I think Tracy’s best songs are far better than Mark’s best songs
