Hailing from the Chicago area, I have heard the name Chris Cavanaugh quite a bit. He's able to draw huge crowds in the Midwest with just his name on the ticket. (Opening for acts such as Luke Bryan and Joe Nichols has helped too.) Chris is from St. Louis, but called Nashville his home shortly after graduation. After years of songwriting, he decided to move back home and do what he loved best - perform. Frequenting venues in the Midwest, Chris is currently expanding his listeners around the US. As a tribute to home, Chris has released "Country As I Wanna Be" as his first single from his new EP that will be released October 25. This isn't for the dirt road country fans. Chris has written for us city boys with a country heart. "I'm as country as I wanna be. Don't give a damn what anybody thinks. Work an honest job, honestly." He may not have grown up on classics like Cash and Haggard, but he's still just as country as an animal-lovin' backroad man. For me, this song is almost an autobiography of my life and that means it probably hits home to many of our readers. I highly recommend watching the video and going Chris Cavanaugh a "like" on Facebook. For all you tweeters follow him @CavanaughMusic. And for those who aren't socially connected head over to ChrisCavanaughMusic.com! I promise this is one name you won't forget.
