Article reads: On March 26,1998, my friend, Eva **, and I headed to Univeral City, CA to see Mark in concert. The Crown Royal Tour event began that night with acts by Gary Allan and David Lee Murphy. During the intermission that allowed the crews to set up Mark's equipment, the four hour drive Eva and I had made to see the concert was setting in rather heavy and exhaustion was taking over. We began to think we'd never manage the long drive back home that night. Then, as the lights dimmed for Mark's introoduction, we heard a voice from a few rows back say, "Finally, we get to the 'real' country." That caught our attention and from that point on, we left our exhaustion behind us. As the band started in with "Bubba Shot The Jukebox", the amphitheatre echoed with applause for Mark. It was obvious who the majority of those in attendance had come to see. The crowd never faltered in their applause, and Mark lavished in the attention by playing with the audience at every opportunity. He teased those of us singing along to "Too Cold At Home" with an exceedingly long note carrying that only he was able to maintain. The rest of us were left breathlessly laughing at our feeble attempt to stay with him. It was one of many moments that made for a very memorable evening. Mark's extraordinary talent for the art of country music was showcased extremely well that night. He performed every single, and then some, making all those in attendance only wish the night would never end. It was obvious by the standing ovation that, if only for that night, Mark was the king of the Crown Royal Tour. Thank you Mark... for never giving up, living your dreams to the fullest and allowing us, the fans, to share in those dreams with you. your greatest gift is that of your song.
I finally decdied to scrap something other than my kids. These pictures and memorabilia had been in a sticky album and needed to be taken care of before age set in. The article was written by me and appeared in the offical Mark Chesnutt fan club newsletter. I had taken my CD apart and had Mark sign the back sleeve in order to preserve the picture on the front sleeve. I scanned and printed the back sleeve for the purpose of scrapping. Title is done with QuicKutz 'Lucy' font and is the title of one of Mark's songs.
