Bigger Picture Music Group Recording Artist CHRIS CAGLE has been entertaining fans since his break-out album “Play it Loud” hit the streets in 2000. His breakthrough hit “I Breathe In, I Breath Out” garnered him his first #1 single on the country charts. Since then he has released 4 more major albums and charted 11 Top 40 Singles with hits such as 2007’s “What Kinda Gone” and most recently 2012’s “Got My Country On.” CAGLE has been a fan favorite since his debut; known for his high energy stage shows and dedication to his fans that proudly call themselves “cagleheads,” CHRIS CAGLE has been a mainstay on the national touring circuit for almost 15 years.
Country hit makers CONFEDERATE RAILROAD burst out of the honky tonks and onto national country radio in the early 90’s with top 5 hits such as “Jesus and Mama,” “Queen of Memphis,” and “Daddy never was the Cadillac Kind.” When they released their Top 10 hit “Trashy Women” in 1993, it wasn’t know that it would become a staple in the history of country music and over 2 decades later still reigns as an anthem for country fans across America. Known as one of the hardest working bands in country music, CONFEDERATE RAILROAD have consistently toured the globe for the past 22 years, still playing 100+ shows a year. They released a fan favorite new single entitled “Fast Cars, Guitars, and Fine Tuned Women” in 2013 true to their outlaw honky tonk roots and the band shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
