Country music star and Beaumont native Mark Chesnutt brought a breath of fresh air to the current state of the clogged up Country music scene on April 14 when he played a plethora of his hits to a packed Grand Event Center located inside the Golden Nugget in Lake Charles.

"Country music nowadays, you can't tell from one person to the next, it all sounds the same," Chesnutt told the audience. "I'm here to play some real Country music. So if you don't want to hear real Country music, you might want to leave." Not a single person moved.

Though many know her for her role as Sandy Olsson alongside John Travolta in the 1978 iconic musical-film Grease, Olivia had a string of seven No. 1 songs before she ever stepped foot on the movie set including "Please Mr. Please" and "I Honestly Love You," which she ended the 21-song set with.
