The new videos feature Chesnutt recounting his favorite songs and memories of the format’s biggest stars.

Episode Two is an emotional account of his relationship with the legendary George Jones.
“We just had a special friendship. We’d call each other all the time to talk about things. He gave me a lot of advice. And we sat around on the bus and sang. That’s my most treasured memory of George Jones,” says Chesnutt in the clip.
This week’s installment, out today, honors Merle Haggard. Chesnutt discusses an instance when Haggard invited him over to his house for a tour rehearsal with The Strangers, Haggard’s long-time band. Watch Episode Three here.
