Born November 12, 1964 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Died in Athens, Georgia on December 25th, 2009.

Vic Chesnutt was a singer-songwriter living in Athens, Georgia. A car crash at age 18 left him partly paralyzed, and he performed in a wheelchair.

A regular of the 40 Watt Club scene, he was spotted by [a=Michael Stipe] who produced his first two albums.

In 1996, Chesnutt was exposed to a wider audience with the release of the tribute album [m120021], the proceeds from which went to the Sweet Relief Fund. The album consisted of Chesnutt covers by famous musicians including [a=Garbage], [a=Smashing Pumpkins, The], [a=Madonna], [a=R.E.M.] and [a=Live].

A prolific songwriter, Chesnutt worked with [a=Lambchop], [a=Widespread Panic] (as [a=Brute (2)]), [a=Elf Power] as well as [a=Bill Frisell], [a=Guy Picciotto] and members of [a43637].

On December 25, 2009, Chesnutt died from an overdose of muscle relaxants that had left him in a coma in an Athens hospital.
