Mark Chesnutt returns to the top with a song about being tired.
The Road to No. 1
After topping the charts with “I’ll Think of Something,” Chesnutt went top five with “Bubba Shot the Jukebox” and “Ol’ Country.” His third studio album then produced three consecutive No. 1 hits.
The No. 1
The first of those is by far the weakest, but that’s not as heavy a criticism in this case, as the next two are genuine classics.
But as for “It Sure is Monday,” it sure is…pleasant enough?
As Dennis Linde songs go, it’s fairly tame. The dude is tired because he partied too hard over the weekend, and now he’s got to chug down coffee to get through the day.
And that’s it.
Chesnutt being the singer of this keeps the record from being as silly as it could’ve been, but also keeps it from being particularly interesting.
But stay tuned. He’s going to knock the next two out of the park.
The Road From No. 1
The title track of Almost Goodbye is up next, and it will be climbing the charts as Chesnutt wins the CMA Horizon Award in the fall of 1993.
“It Sure is Monday” gets a B-.
