Country Artist Jerry Chesnut

Born and raised in Harlan County, Kentucky, Jerry Chesnut moved to Nashville in 1958 to pursue his career. In 1967, Del Reeves recorded Chesnut’s “A Dime at a Time” to give the songwriter his first chart hit single. In 1968, Jerry Lee Lewis’s hit recording of Chesnut’s “Another Place, Another Time” was nominated for a Grammy Award. In 1972, Chesnut was named Billboard’s ‘Songwriter of the Year’, and in 1992 he became a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.

His hits include “Good Year for the Roses” (recorded by Alan Jackson, George Jones and Elvis Costello) and “T-R-O-U-B-L-E” (recorded by Elvis Presley in 1975, and Travis Tritt in 1992.)
