Chris Cagle (born November 10, 1968 in DeRidder, Louisiana) is an American country music artist.

Signed with Virgin Records Nashville in 2000, Cagle made his debut on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks charts with the single "My Love Goes On and On", the first single from his debut album “Play It Loud.” The album, which was certified gold in the United States, also produced the Top 10 hit "Laredo" and "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out", his only #1 hit.

“Play It Loud” was followed in 2002 by “Chris Cagle,” released on Capitol Records Nashville. Also a gold album in the U.S., it produced the Top 5 hits "What a Beautiful Day" and "Chicks Dig It" as well as the #39-peaking "I'd Be Lying."

Anywhere but Here, his third album, followed in 2005 and produced the #12-peaking "Miss Me Baby." The other two singles, "Wal-Mart Parking Lot" and the title track, which had also been a single for Brice Long in 2005, both failed to enter the Top 40.

His fourth studio album, titled “My Life's Been a Country Song,” was released in 2008, and its lead-off single, "What Kinda Gone", peaked at #3 on the country music charts in early 2008. The second single from the album, "No Love Songs", was released in May 2008, which debuted and peaked at #53 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts for the week of May 24, 2008. Overall, his albums have accounted for thirteen singles, of which all but one have charted.
