Another in the long line of great Texas writer/artists, Mark Nesler writes honest, heartfelt country songs in the spirit of all the country music greats-with a definite focus on today’s contemporary sound.
After touring for several years with his own band, in 1995 Mark began playing guitar with RCA recording artist, Tracy Byrd. While touring with Byrd, Mark continued to grow as a songwriter and performer. Mark recorded an album on Nashville’s Asylum label in 1997 and gained the respect and praise of a legion of fans and music industry executives. Later, many top recording artists in Nashville recorded songs from that album. One of those artists is country star, Tracy Lawrence, who released the song “Used To The Pain” as his first single from his greatest hits package in June of 2005.
Other artists that have benefited from his songwriting talent are George Strait and Tim McGraw in particular. McGraw had a six week #1 single with the Nesler penned song “Just to See You Smile” on his multi-platinum selling “Everywhere” album. George Strait has two #1 singles, thanks to the songwriting talent of Mark Nesler: “Go On” and “Living And Living Well.” Nesler also co-wrote Darryl Worley’s #1 hit single, “I Miss My Friend.” Other hit singles include: “For You I Will”- Aaron Tippin, “Heaven In My Woman’s Eyes” and “Just Let Me Be In Love”- Tracy Byrd.
In 2006, Mark enjoyed another top ten with the Billy Currington single, “Why, Why, Why.” He then followed that in 2007 with a top five hit, “A Different World,” on Lyric Street artist, Bucky Covington, and in 2008 celebrated a #1 with the Keith Urban smash, “You Look Good In My Shirt.”
Nesler’s music broke new ground in 2010 when one of his songs was selected as the title track for the movie, Country Strong. His most recent success came with the release of Billy Currington’s #1 single, “Let Me Down Easy.”
Mark continues to write every day and is one of Nashville’s most successful and respected songwriters and artists.
