THE CADILLAC THREE gave their hometown an impromptu show last night at The Basement. Under the guise of a mid-tour pop-up, the Nashville natives took over the intimate local haunt to reveal their long-awaited album BURY ME IN MY BOOTS, slated for August 5 on Big Machine Records.
“When we confirmed the official release date of BURY ME IN MY BOOTS, we knew our hometown had to be involved in a big way! But, we wanted all of our fans across the world to join in too,” raved frontman Jaren Johnston. “Thank you all for coming out tonight to support us in person and online… and jam along!”
The trio has been teasing the full-length project with a staggered release of new tracks like “Graffiti,” “Soundtrack To A Six Pack” and “Drunk Like You.” Highlighting the fresh material, TC3 also peppered in fan-favorites such as “The South, “White Lightning” and “Peace, Love & Dixie” into the set. The musical comrades performed for the capacity-filled room and gave fans online a taste of the title track through their Facebook Live.
Their raw and gritty sound has long since defined TC3’s rocking vivacity and universal appeal with Chicago Sun-Times surmising, “…the majority of today’s so called country rockers are simply trying to emulate what The Cadillac Three has been from their very beginning.” They are currently bringing their “unrefined live show you won’t want to miss” (PASTE) to Florida Georgia Line’s DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR this summer.
Pals since high school, the bandmates’ musical fusion has transcended global boundaries as they’ve built a loyal following in the UK with multiple sold-out headline dates, 2014 UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour: Best New Band accolade and became the most played new band on Planet Rock in 2015. Rolling Stone boasts, “Like Kings of Leon before them, they’re poised for their first big break in the U.K. — where they’ve sold out every headlining show for nearly two years — before conquering their U.S. home turf.”
