Fun N’ Sun Toyota Country Concert artist, Chris Cagle, was asked to cover Bon Jovi’s ’80s classic “Wanted Dead or Alive” on his new album, “Anywhere But Here.”
Cagle was approached by his new manager to cover the song and according to Cagle, “I was like, ‘Dude… Do you realize when you go cover a song like that, and you don’t knock it out of the park, you’ll get crucified? I don’t care how many hits you have on that record.’”
Once the track was cut, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora complimented Cagle on his ability to cover the rock song while still keeping his country roots alive. Chris Cagle’s “Anywhere But Here” album is available now in stores and online. The album showcases his traditional influences along with a more contemporary sound.
You can see Chris Cagle, Ronnie Dunn and others perform on Sunday, April 22 at the WQYK Fun N’ Sun Toyota Country Concert at Coachman Park in Clearwater. General Admission is FREE with reserved seats starting at $20. Purchase your tickets today by clicking here.
