GET DRUNK

VIC CHESNUTT COMES TO SERVE UP HIS LATEST ALBUM

And while it may be easy to lump Chesnutt in with other troubled Southern artists who have drawn inspiration from lives below the Mason-Dixon Line, it may also be inevitable.

"It's odd, because when I was growing up, I wanted to be cosmo boy, you know, I wanted to be city boy," he says. "I grew up in the woods in the South, and I talk like that and I sing like that, and my images are Southern, I guess. I've been so close to living in New York a hundred times, and I tried to live in L.A. for six months. Moved out, moved back. I like Georgia; it's comfortable there."
He's a skeptic, a cynic, a relatively small-time alternative musician indentured--for now, at least--to the road. And he's happy.

"I have a perfect life for me," says Chesnutt in a soft twang. "Once I realized as a teenager that I wasn't goin' to be working at the cotton mill, once I knew that I was a Southern-misfit kind of guy, I went with it. It's a perfect little life for me, I guess, singin' and doin' and bitchin'.
