About The Cadillac Three
The Cadillac Three is rapidly becoming known for their high-energy shows and gritty musical instincts. With opening slots on sold-out stops across Europe, the trio of Nashville natives were named the UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards Best New Band and one of the 10 New Artists You Need to Know by Rolling Stone Country. Jaren Johnston (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Kelby Ray (Bass Steel Guitar, Dobro, Acoustic & Vocals) and Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) have weathered wild adventures as a country group with a rockin’ edge and epitomize their self-described “country fuzz” sound with their Big Machine Records singles “The South,” featuring Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Mike Eli (Eli Young Band) and “Party Like You.” The band’s talents extend into songwriting, garnering No. 1 hits for Keith Urban, Tim McGraw and Jake Owen as well as album cuts for Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and Miranda Lambert, among others. Jaren was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards: Best Country Song (“Meanwhile Back at Mama’s”) and Best Country Album (RISER | Dierks Bentley) and an ACM nod for Album of The Year (RISER | Dierks Bentley) while the band was up for Vocal Event of the Year (“The South”). With a raw sound like no other, the buzz-worthy trio has appeared on ABC’s hit drama “NASHVILLE” and their music has been featured on “CSI Miami” and two CW shows – “Vampire Diaries” and “Hart Of Dixie.” After touring in Europe together last year, TC3 opened select dates on Eric Church’s spring tour in addition to their own AVIATORS AND RADIATORS headline club shows and stops with Lee Brice’s COLLEGE TOUR.
