And then when Garth’s kids were grown up, he came back.Willie Nelson says he wants to die on the stage, and he probably will. Or Merle Haggard, Dolly Parton, Kris Kirstofferson, or David Allan Coe? That’s what George Jones, Ray Price, and “Little” Jimmy Dickens did.Quitting music would be like deciding to quit watching sunsets or eating ice cream with your family or something. That seems tantamount to asking a musician to commit suicide.Sure, for certain reasons you may have to scale back doing certain things you enjoy. Garth Brooks retired from country music some 20 years ago after becoming the most commercially successful country artist of all time. Garth’s excuse was he went to one of his kids’ soccer games, realized how enjoyable it was, and woke up to the fact that he was completely missing out on life while trying to stack more money in the bank than his grandchildren’s grandchildren could ever spend.You look all across country music in 2015, and at artists who got their start at roughly the same time as Chris Cagle did, and many of them are embarrassing themselves left and right, trying to chase trends set by Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line. And the result is a loss of dignity for a lot of these artists, and usually no new berth for their careers.

When he was 4, his family moved to the outskirts of Houston.Chris Cagle has only one option in his country music career right now: to acquiesce, conform, and follow.That’s the only way someone gives him money to make a record, and that’s the only way to get his music heard.Going back and listening to his early singles like “I Breathe In, I Breathe Out” and “Laredo,” this was some pretty good stuff. Somewhere around that time Cagle lost his deal with Capitol Nashville and he was on the streets looking for a label.But it was 2001, and most everything back then will sound like honey to the weary ears of today. By the time came out in 2012, a man who had made his name on sentimental songs was starting to work in the direction of Bro-Country.
