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 response is seemingly simple for a man whose professional credits include two gold albums, two No. 1 albums and 12-charted songs.
From 2000-2008, Cagle released an almost nonstop catalog of hits that resulted in a scorching hot career. Cagle's musical character and burning ambition never wavered but today, Cagle's personal perspective has mellowed. 2012's forthcoming album is, in more ways than one, a new lease on life.
Cagle's 2012 release from Bigger Picture Group, under the working title, "Back In The Saddle" is his homecoming – a rekindling of his creative flame and a roaring reminder of his rock-infused country roots. It's something he originated and what he does best: relatable, back-roads and familiar while also being a striking form of country music worth getting excited about.
Dustin Lynch opens for Cagle at 7 p.m. His debut single, "Cowboy and Angels," is on its way to Platinum with nearly three quarters of a million singles sold. "Cowboys and Angels" – which has become an iconic, modern day classic – reached #2 on both the Billboard and Mediabase Country Songs charts and has earned Lynch two 2012 FOX American Country Award nominations for "Single of the Year – New Artist" and "Video of the Year – New Artist." Lynch worked with producers Brett Beavers (known for his work with Dierks Bentley) and Luke Wooten (Brad Paisley, Sunny Sweeney) on his self-titled, inaugural album which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart – making him the only new male act to have his album land at #1 in 2012.
