Via Live Stream
NASHVILLE, TN (August 26, 2015) – Proving that adolescent fantasies truly can become a reality, buzz-worthy band THE CADILLAC THREE will boldly return to hometown haunt The Cannery Ballroom (1 Cannery Row) on Saturday, September 19 at 8:00P. Tickets to see the brash, yet beloved, Nashville natives sold out in less than one week and highlights just how far these high school friends have come. Even Superstar acts like Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Eli Young Band are pumped. Hear what they think of TC3: http://youtu.be/MFZskxJiZf8.
Jaren Johnston (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) and Kelby Ray (Bass Steel Guitar, Dobro, Acoustic & Vocals) plan to give the capacity crowd a high-energy, uninhibited musical party with a few surprises.
“Damn, we started playing music to grow out our hair and meet chicks,” laughs Jaren. “We've seen some of our favorite bands here so it’s cool to sell out The Cannery. Hopefully our fans will make similar memories.”
“We haven’t really played a headline date in Nashville since 2013 so we’re pretty excited for this show,” added Neil. “Plus, it’ll be nice to see our family and sleep in our own beds.”
While the venue may be maxed out, fans will still be able to rock from wherever they are that night through a live stream across Big Machine’s iHeart Radio channel.
“Our fans always come out in full force!” chimed in Kelby. “It just makes sense to offer them all a chance to catch the show and join the party from wherever they are.”
It’s no wonder TC3 secured a slot as one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 New Artists You Need to Know” and was named UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards Best New Band. Their intense performances, gritty sonic instincts, casual demeanors and killer songwriting prowess have earned TC3 an ACM Vocal Event of the Year nomination while Jaren scored GRAMMY nods for RISER (Dierks Bentley) & “Meanwhile Back at Mama’s” (Tim McGraw), in addition to penning #1 hits for Keith Urban, Jake Owen and Billy Currington. Their eclectic catalogue also features album cuts for Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jack’s Mannequin, Meat Loaf and more.
TC3 will hit the road this fall with Chase Rice but have already received rave reviews from their headline dates, summer festivals and tours with Eric Church and Lee Brice:
"…it's an unrefined live show you won't want to miss."
“…the majority of today’s so called country rockers are simply trying to emulate what The Cadillac Three has been from their very beginning.”
“The blazing brand of country rock plied by The Cadillac Three burns down genre boundaries.”
The Boston Globe
“…purveyors of countrified rock’n’roll with a metallic bite that sits halfway between Merle Haggard and Metallica…”
Class Rock Magazine
“… a band with a hard rock sound and catchy, easy-to-get-into lyrics that also has a grit and authenticity…”
Saving Country Music
Easily shifting gears in their set from beat-laden anthems like “The South” and “Party Like You,” TC3’s latest offering on Big Machine Records is an unconventional love song Jaren penned for his wife Evyn. Watch the music video for “White Lightning" via http://vevo.ly/xpsDAI.
