Got My Country On

Album: Back In The Saddle (2011)
Charted: 86

Songfacts®:

  • This is the first single by American country music singer Chris Cagle, from his fifth album Back In The Saddle. Songwriting credits here go to Nashville songsmiths Kelly Archer, Justin Weaver and Danny Myrick, who have between them penned tunes for such artists as Jason Aldean, Craig Morgan and Jo Dee Messina. Keith Stegall, who has worked with such acts as Alan Jackson, George Jones, Zac Brown Band, and Randy Travis, produced the track in conjunction with Cagle.
  • The song's music video was directed by Marcel and filmed on location at the Cagle family's "Big Horse Ranch" in Marietta, Oklahoma and at a boisterous tour stop at Billy Bob's in Fort Worth. The clip illustrates to viewers how Cagle gets his country on: by performing his loud, self proclaimed "redneck rock 'n roll" and by getting some serious work done maintaining his impressive Oklahoma homestead.
