Country musician Chris Cagle to perform at county fair
The Scotts Bluff County Ag Society will present Chris Cagle in concert at the Scotts Bluff County Fair, Aug. 9.
The Ag Society will release information on opening ticket sales. Cost of tickets will be $18 in advance and $20 at the gate.
Cagle started out writing songs for David Kersh before debuting on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks charts with the single “My Love Goes On and On,” the first single from his debut album “Play It Loud” in 2000. The album, which was certified gold in the United States, also produced the Top 10 hit “Laredo” and “I Breathe In, I Breathe Out.”
From that time to 2008, Cagle released a catalog of hits that resulted in a scorching hot career. Cagle’s musical character and burning ambition never wavered, but today, his personal perspective has mellowed.
His new album “Back in the Saddle,” released in 2012, has given Cagle a new lease on life in more ways than one.
Opening act will be Confederate Railroad, well known for “Daddy Never was the Cadillac Kind” from their second album “Notorious.”
The band was part of the national country music scene in the early ’90s with its unique style and sound. Confederate Railroad received The Academy of Country Music’s Best New Group Award in 1993 as well as numerous nominations from the Country Music Association and the British Country Music Foundation.
