Cagle arrested on DUI charge

Tuesday, December 17, 2013 – Chris Cagle was arrested Sunday in Greenville, Texas, charged with driving while intoxicated.

Cagle, 45, was pulled over after allegedly running a red light on U.S. Highway 69 about 2 a.m., DPS spokesman Lonny Haschel said.

The Oklahoma resident had a number one hit with I Breathe In, I Breathe Out in 2001. He enjoyed a resurgence in 2012 with his disc "Back in the Saddle," which yielded the hit Got My Country On.

Back in the Saddle CD review - Back in the Saddle
After four years in the on deck circle, Chris Cagle has resurfaced with his aptly titled comeback album, "Back in the Saddle." His debut with Bigger Picture Music Group is aimed at putting him right back into the mainstream. He begins with the raucous radio friendly opener Got My Country On. Now a happily married father of three girls, domesticity provided inspiration for several of the tracks, namely the tender father-daughter ballad Dance Baby Dance, which he co-wrote with »»»
My Life's Been a Country Song CD review - My Life's Been a Country Song
If Chris Cagle's life actually was a country song, the first verse would be about a guy on top of the world - his first two albums went gold, "I Breathe in, I Breathe Out" was a number one single. But, of course, adversity comes knocking in verse two - multiple vocal problems, including a polyp and a lesion, stilled his singing for three months and forced him to bow out of a tour with Rascal Flatts; he lost a lawsuit against a former manager and had to pay $750,000, and his third »»»
Anywhere But Here CD review - Anywhere But Here
Chris Cagle is still trying to find that sense of purpose that served him so well on his debut CD "Play It Loud," and that seemed to elude his grasp on his self-titled sophomore release. Not to read too much of a personal statement into lyrics but on the title song and "When I Get There" (which is almost the same exact song), he admits he has no idea where he's going. So using the scattershot approach, Cagle none-too-convincingly mines Montgomery Gentry territory with "You Might Want to Think »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: MerleFest Opening Night Showcases Both New and Familiar Artists – Long running North Carolina roots music festival MerleFest is a family friendly affair that has proven to have appeal to different generations. The lineup for Thursday's opening night, then, could be seen as a mirror to that audience as it contained artists ranging from multiple-year veterans of the festival down to first-year rookies.... »»»
Concert Review: No joke, The Wacos return – The Clash may have ended their run decades ago, but one couldn't blame Joe Strummer - if able to listen from the grave - that his band is alive and well. Only now he'd have to think they were reincarnated as The Waco Brothers. And Strummer needn't worry about whether the long running Chicago band is up to snuff either.... »»»

Solivan  turns to family, friends, heroes After scoring a 2015 IBMA nomination for Best Bluegrass Album for "Cold Spell," Frank Solivan tried something a little different this time around - an album of songs recorded by "Family, Friends and Heroes" (Compass).

Sellers garages her country Aubrie Sellers just may be onto something on her debut - garage country. After all, we've already witnessed traditional country, new country, neo-traditional, country rock, pop country and bro country. Sellers, a 25-year-old Nashvillian with a big time musical pedigree who released her debut, "New City Blues," in January, said the moniker came to mind as her bio was being written.... »»»
Del and Woody CD review - Del and Woody
For two years we've been hearing of this recording, a project where original lyrics from Woody Guthrie were to be reinvented as bluegrass songs by the legendary Del McCoury. Like previous sets from Billy Bragg & Wilco (3 volumes of "Mermaid Avenue" released between 1998-2012), Jay Farrar, et al ("New Multitudes," 2012) and The Klezmatics (a pair of 2006 releases), lyrics stored within the Woody Guthrie Archives were turned over to McCoury to be repurposed. »»»
Empty Glasses CD review - Empty Glasses
Coming on the heels of her last album, the tellingly titled "Quicksand," Reagan Boggs' latest continues to affirm her reputation as a master of emotion, a performer whose sound and delivery leave no sentiment unturned. Consequently, "Empty Glasses" becomes an equally expressive handle, given that much of the album bears a deliberately downcast disposition. That can also be discerned by reading the names of certain songs -- "Honey I'm Lost"...  »»»
