The Cadillac Three has a distinct fuzzy country rock band sound that is raw and relatable. Experiencing “TC3” live changes the game, and it’s going down tomorrow night. Let me help you become acquainted with these badass musicians.
The Tennessean bandmates Jaren Johnston, Kelby Ray and Neil Mason have been creating music together since their teenage years. From playing empty dive bars and crashing couches, to writing hits on Nashville’s music row, to selling out major shows throughout the U.S. and Europe, the trio has collectively encountered just about every high and low within the music industry.
From their experiences, a raw and unique sound was born that transcends genres and some may even say eras that go back to 70s southern rock. The Cadillac Three has the ability fully bring down a house full of Lynyrd Skynyrd to Dierks Bentley fans without rearranging a song on their set list.
Grinding out hit songs is nothing new to The Cadillac Three, especially for lead singer and guitarist, Jaren Johnston. Along with writing with TC3, Johnston has written songs cut by likes of Jake Owen, Keith Urban, Frankie Ballard and Tim McGraw… just to name a few.
The trio’s top hits include their staple single “The South”
…along with “White Lightening”
and “Party Like You.”
A die-hard Cadillac Three fan, like myself, will tell you that it is really tough to pick a favorite song from their albums.
Here is mix of TC3 essentials for you:
With the great amount of music and success associated to The Cadillac Three, Jaren Johnston recently shared with CMT, “I don’t actually think we’ve ever really tried to write a hit. It’s the realness bringing people in. We’ll sing about fighting, growing up in a small town, spraying your name on a bridge or me missing my wife. I think fans are seeing the realness in a world where a lot of it’s fake.”
Do not miss your chance to see The Cadillac Three at The Blue Note.
