Chris Cagle, a performer whose fourth album My Life’s Been a Country Song currently rules the roost at the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Country Albums chart, saddles up and takes his show to Murfreesboro this Friday, March 7.
Cagle’s ride into town is in conjunction with the Cabin Fever Classic event (March 4-9), featuring The Wimpy’s Little Step Derby. He’ll start things off on the right foot with a horse demonstration alongside Shawn Flarida (gold medalist in the World Equestrian Games) at 6:45 p.m., and is then set to take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Underway at the Tennessee Miller Coliseum, the Cabin Fever Classic first gallops into gear for the day Friday at 8 a.m. Admission to the horse show side of things is free and the concert costs $25, which benefits The Monroe Carell Jr. Hospital at Vanderbilt. A crowd of 4,600 is anticipated for Cagle’s concert.
His first single to radio off the new album, “What Kinda Gone,” is Top 10 on Billboard’s Country Singles chart. And as a singer who has one of country music’s most devoted fan bases, the man with hits like “Laredo,” “Chicks Dig It,” “What a Beautiful Day,” and “Miss Me Baby” to his name doesn’t want anyone in town to miss this.
“Everyone knows how much I love horses…” says Cagle, who in fact loves them so much that he’s made videos for his music fans featuring a few of his own equines. “This is a real opportunity to raise money for a great charity. Thank you for helping give back to the community I am so proud to live in.”
This is certainly a great-cause chance to catch Cagle before he rides off into the sunset. The $25 tickets are now available at the Coliseum. Directions and more information are available at the Coliseum website, www.mtsu.edu/~tmc/.
