Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap-steel player Kelby Ray have known one another since they were teens and have been sharing stages together for nearly 15 years.
“We’re trying to build something and do it our way, which is always harder,” says Johnston. “If you’re going to leave something that people are actually going to remember, you can’t take the easy way. So we took all of our history, mixed it with the energy of The Cadillac Three and put it into a record that makes sense of where we’ve been and where we’re going.”
Honesty, or authenticity, is a favorite buzzword around Nashville. But few artists come to it as naturally as The Cadillac Three. These guys couldn’t fake it if they tried. In one album’s title track, LEGACY, they offer a heart-on-the-sleeve testimony to what’s really important at the end of one’s days: love and a family tree.
When you run through The Cadillac Three’s milestones. It’s all there, from boundary-pushing albums, Grammy-nominated No. 1 songwriting across genres and fan-favorite singles to sold-out club shows and massive festival gigs alongside Aerosmith.
Festival Highlights include Boots & Hearts, Hometown Rising, Kid Rock’s Flyin’ High Island Jam and Boots in the Park
2019 Tour plans include Luke Combs’ Beer Never Broke My Heart Tour and 33 dates with Travis Tritt followed by their own headlining dates.
