From publicist Phyllis Stark (October 2018): I am one of the originals of the Buffalo Grass Acoustic Society in Peyton Colorado. I set up the original website and I write the headliner blurbs for the website. . .
From Music Director Kathy Forste KC Cafe Radio in Kansas City regarding Jim's new album (September 2018): I Sure Do Miss My Hair is a collection of ten songs by one of country music’s all-time greatest singers and songwriters.
From Music Row Magazine (May 10, 2018):
DISClaimer receives a blast from the past this week by Nashville insider Robert K. Oermann:
"It’s the 1980s all over again as Gene Watson, Karen Tobin, Gail Davies and Jim Chesnut all pop up with vibrant new sounds . . . Chesnut had a flurry of chart activity in the late '70s and early '80s on ABC, MCA, UA and Liberty. Now back in his native Texas, he has a new, 'golden-years' CD titled I Sure Do Miss My Hair. Its lead single is a lively two-step about still rocking while sliding into old age."
From Rowena Muldavin, Heartland Public Radio (May 2018):
"I've been doing Country radio for quite a while. It's a mix of new and old with an emphasis on independent artists who are simply not on Nashville's radar. From the first note and lyric to the last on Jim's latest album, I Sure Do Miss My Hair, I was nothing less than mesmerized by each song. What a stunning talent he is!
