Tickets on Sale to See Chris Cagle at the Cattle Baron’s Ball [VIDEO]
Tickets are now on sale for the 3rd annual Stateline Stampede Cattle Baron's Ball "Wranglers and Roses" featuring country artist Chris Cagle. The concert will be held at the Four States Fairgrounds Entertainment Center on Saturday, September 26 with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society.
Also, Texas Rebellion, an eight-piece East Texas band from Tyler will entertain VIPs at the Cattle Baron's Ball with a very special performance. This will mark the first time that the fundraising event will take place at the Entertainment Center. ACS Community Manager Christal Prince said, "The committee chose to move this year's event to the Four States Fairgrounds Entertainment Center because it seemed the past two years we've always seemed to be battling weather conditions.
"Moving the event to a controlled environment indoors, we don't have to worry about that happening anymore. Everything that you have come to love about the Cattle Baron's Ball will still be incorporated into the entertainment center with all the western style themed decor and old western town," she explained.
Last year the Cattle Baron's Ball raised more than $75,000 for The American Cancer Society and had about 400 people in attendance. This year's goal this year is to hopefully have 600 people in attendance. Tickets for the Cattle Baron's Ball are on sale at their website.
About Chris Cagle
Cagle has already garnered two gold albums, two No. 1 albums and 12 singles that hit the country music chart. This DeRidder, La., country boy who now makes his home in Oklahoma, has always pursued his lifelong dream of writing and singing country music.
In 2000, Cagle quickly rose to the top of the charts with his first number one single "I Breathe In, I Breath Out," which still remains a fan favorite today. In 2002, Cagle carved his way on to the country music charts with Top 5 hits such as "Chicks Dig It," and "What a Beautiful Day." Other hits from previously albums included "Miss Me Baby," and "What Kinda Gone."
According to his website, the professional success and sales were gratifying but his personal life blistered under the spotlight.
“I was tired of who I was in this business,” Cagle said. “I had become somebody who I didn’t want to be.” He bowed out and retreated to his homestead in Oklahoma, a place where he could distance himself from the industry, reconnect with his roots and take back control of his life. He also met his wife Kay, who he describes in the song “Let There Be Cowgirls." Cagle also found a new identity as a father, with the birth of his daughter in 2010. He says “she made me want to be better at everything."
In 2012, Cagle released a new album appropriately named Back In The Saddle, which showcased his creative side and his rock-infused country roots. The single "Got My Country On" became Cagle's first top 20 hit since "What Kinda Gone" and the second single was another country rockin' tune called "Let There Be Cowgirls."
