After a self-titled album in on Columbia RecordsChesnutt has continued to record predominantly on independent labels.

Chesnutt released his major-label debut Too Cold at Home in Wright produced the album, provided background vocals on some tracks, and wrote or co-wrote five of its ten tracks, including both "Blame It on Texas" and "Your Love Is a Miracle".
Too Cold at Home was met with generally positive critical and commercial reception. Alanna Nash of Entertainment Weekly praised Chesnutt's singing voice and honky-tonk style, but felt that the album had too many cover songs. Chesnutt noted in a news article in The Tennesseean that Too Cold At Home - Various - Country Club Shot the Jukebox" written by Dennis Linde had been released as a single due to high demand from fans, and that he was pleased to have recorded a duet with Jones, whom he considered a musical idol.
The album's final single, a cover of Don Gibson 's single " Woman Sensuous Woman ", was less successful on the charts. His next album, Wingscame out in For this album, Tony Brown served as producer instead of Wright. Decca issued a Greatest Hits package in InChesnutt released Thank God for Believerswhich reunited him with Wright on production duties.
We both lost a little bit of what we started together" and that, once the two started working together, "It was like we were never Too Cold At Home - Various - Country Club . In lateChesnutt recorded a cover version of Aerosmith 's " I Don't Want to Miss a Thing " at the suggestion of Wright, who had heard the song on his car radio.
Because the two thought that the song had potential as a single, Decca withdrew promotion of "Wherever You Are" in favor of the cover,  which resulted in "Wherever You Are" becoming his first single not to make top 40 on the country music charts. He felt that covering a pop song would "show people [he] could sing something other than the same old stuff", while also noting that many of Lo Fiolairé - Frederica Von Stade, Canteloube*, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra*, Antonio De Almeida - previous successful songs had been ballads.
The album included covers of two songs co-written and originally recorded by Shawn Camp on his self-titled debut albumwhich was also produced by Wright: " Fallin' Never Felt So Good " and " Confessin' My Love ".

Ritchey also co-wrote several songs on the album. It has something for all those fans", highlighting Chesnutt's vocal delivery on the title track in particular. InChesnutt announced the release of his next studio album, Outlaw.
According to Chesnutt, he was presented the idea by record producer Pete Andersonbest known for his work with Dwight Yoakamwhen Saguaro Road Records was seeking an artist to perform a covers album. The two recorded the album at Anderson's studio in Burbank, Californiain only two days. Chesnutt formed his own label, Nada Dinero, in His first release through this label was a live album called Live from the Big Drecorded in Dallas, Texas.
Chesnutt continued to tour throughout the s. InGeorge Jones invited Chesnutt to be his opener on the last show of his farewell tour at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. However, Jones died before the show could take place, so Chesnutt and other artists held a tribute show in Jones's honor instead. According to Chesnutt, the cover was something that Ritchey and Chesnutt had done for fun, without the intention of ever putting it on an album, due to it being one of Chesnutt's Too Cold At Home - Various - Country Club Merle Haggard songs.
As Haggard died just before the album's release, they chose to include it as a tribute to him. Inhe contributed three cover songs to multi-artist compilation albums.
Chesnutt's musical style draws mainly from honky-tonk and neotraditional country. Some of his songs, such as "It Sure Is Monday" and "Gonna Get a Life", have featured influences of Cajun music through prominent use of fiddle and accordion. Chesnutt's musical Tammy - Roger Williams - Till placed a greater emphasis on song quality over physical attractiveness, compared to the move toward young and attractive males that prevailed in country music in the s.
Nash stated that he "distanced himself from the pack with an identifiable baritone and a focus on music Butangoy (Chris Carrier Remix One) - Felipe Venegas & Andre Butano - Butangoy image",  and Barry Gilbert of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch similarly stating that he "put the music and his warm, classic-country voice before the image.
