Play It Loud is the debut album of country music artist Chris Cagle. It features the singles "My Love Goes On and On", "Laredo", "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out", and "Country by the Grace of God".

The disc was originally issued on Virgin Nashville in 2000, minus the tracks "I Breathe In, I Breathe Out" (which was originally cut by David Kersh on his 1998 album If I Never Stop Loving You) and "Are You Ever Gonna Love Me." After Virgin shut down its country division and Cagle moved to sister company Capitol Nashville in 2001, the album was re-issued with the aforementioned tracks and new album art.[2] The newly added tracks were produced by Chris Lindsey.
