Chris Cagle is hopping into Froggyland on Saturday! Get ready for some fun at the Waterford Fairgrounds in Ligonier.
In the meantime, find out more about Chris Cagle here:
Ask Chris Cagle what’s most important to him and you can bet he’ll answer this way: “Family, ranch, music. That’s it.” This seems like a pretty simple answer for a guy whose professional credits include two gold albums, two No. 1 albums and 12 charted songs.
Chris was born in DeRidder, Louisiana on November 10, 1968, and raised "all over," Chris set off for Nashville after trying his hand at college in Texas and finding the pull to pursue music too strong to ignore. Like many young artists, he spent several years working odd jobs in Nashville and scraping up enough cash to record four original songs for a demo tape. Thanks to a couple of chance meetings and the opportunity to be heard by Scott Hendricks, Chris was signed to Virgin Records in 2000. His first album "Play It Loud" featured the unaltered version of his demo songs. Chris quickly earned critical and commercial success and attracted a legion of fans. Cagle's first number one smash, “I Breathe In, I Breathe Out,” remains a fan favorite.
For Chris, the professional success was gratifying but his personal life suffered. He retreated to Marietta, Oklahoma, where he spent some time reconnecting with his roots and embracing a lifelong dream: building his family’s home. He built “Big Horse Ranch” with his own two hands, nail by nail! Chris also met his wife Kay. In 2010, the couple welcomed a daughter, and Chris says being a dad makes him "want to be better at everything." Aside from spending time with family, his biggest off-stage thrill is training and raising cutting horses.
In 2012, Chris finished a new music project and released an album entitled "Back in the Saddle". He sees it as a rekindling of his creative flame and a reminder of his rock-infused country roots. Get ready to hear your favorites and new tunes from Chris when he jumps into Froggyland on Saturday, July 6th at the Waterford Fairgrounds in Ligonier!
