Chris Cagle Quits The Music Biz

After 15 years in country music, Chris Cagle has decided to call it quits. Find out why…


The singer made the announcement on Facebook Sunday, November 1, stating that the decision comes from wanting to be home to be a dad and great husband.

“I would like to thank everyone for 15 yrs of a great time! From B&D to Flatts and fans!! I’m gonna miss my band and everyone! All this means.. I’m going home! I’m going to be a Father and a GREAT Husband and enjoy my life! I thank you ALL for everything! I’ve had a great run and would just like to go home with my dignity! I just watched my tour bus roll out of the Ranch! I hope the guys on it will forever know what they’ve meant to my life!”

A few years ago, Chris talked about the change having children had made in his life, saying “Something happened to me once I became a father. When Stella came out, something snapped in me … I don’t know what it was. I wanted to be better at everything. I work so much harder now on my music. I work hard on building our ranch. I work hard on my relationship with my wife. I work hard on maintaining a level head. I work hard on every time I get to a place where I want to get upset about something, I think, is this even worth it? It’s weird because I never really cared about what anybody thought of me. Now all I care about is setting an example for what a man should be so that my daughter winds up picking the right guy.”
