Chris Cagle to headline Florida Seafood Festival

The 59th annual Florida Seafood Festival has turned to a veteran country music artist, and an up-and-coming Christian musician to headline the entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights, Nov. 4 and 5. 

Chris Cagle will take the stage at 8:30 p.m. Saturday night, following some warm up entertainment between 5 and 7 p.m.

A songwriter whose first song was published by the legendary Harlan Howard, Cagle, 53, has recorded five albums Play It Loud (2000); Chris Cagle (2003); Anywhere but Here (2005); My Life’s Been a Country Song (2008); and Back in the Saddle (2012).

His hits include “My Love Goes On and On,” “Laredo,” “I Breathe In, I Breathe Out,” “What a Beautiful Day,” “Chicks Dig It,” “Miss Me Baby,” and “What Kinda Gone.” Headlining the Friday night, Nov. 4 entertainment, beginning at 8:30 p.m. will be Christian singer songwriter Hope Darst.

She made her debut in 2020 with the release of a debut studio album, containing the title track “Peace Be Still.” The album’s hit song “Promise Keeper” debuted at number 23 on the Top Christian Albums chart in the United States. 

“Peace Be Still” was Darst’s breakout hit single, having peaked at number six on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart. 

In 2021, Darst, 41, garnered three nominations at the 52nd GMA Dove Awards, for New Artist of the Year, Inspirational Recorded Song of the Year for “Promise Keeper,” and Worship Recorded Song of the Year for “Peace Be Still.”

Her newest single, If the Lord Builds the House, was released June 10.
