Chris Cavanaugh w/Third Shift
Chris Cavanaugh grew up listening to Garth Brooks, George Strait, and Brooks & Dunn. This influence of 90’s country songs and his love for music had Cavanaugh making the trip from his hometown of Springfield, Missouri to Tennessee just months after graduating high school.
Shortly after graduating from Middle Tennessee State University, Chris signed his first songwriting deal. Over the next few years Chris spent his time on music row honing his craft as a writer. During this time however, he says, "I always knew that deep down my ultimate passion was playing and performing, so I eventually had to get out and do something about it...I had to get on the road." And so he did.
Cavanaugh has shared the stage with every country artist in the game including Jake Owen, Lee Brice, Frankie Ballard, Justin Moore, Eric Church, Kip Moore; the list is endless.
You can expect a party at a Cavanaugh show. His style is extremely up-beat showcased by him playing lead electric guitar. A mix of old-school Kenny Chesney and guitar-slaying Keith Urban is the best way to describe his sound.
Cavanaugh recently signed a new publishing deal with Notting Hill Music Publishing, he has just finished his new EP “Footprints on My Windshield'” and he just announced he’s on Kip Moore’s Wild Ones Tour this fall. Needless to say, the future looks bright….
