The Cadillac Three
with special guests Old Southern Moonshine Revival
May 20 @ 8:00PM
"This is where I was born and this is where I'll die."
With that passionate battle cry, the centerpiece lyric of their anthem "The South," The Cadillac Three have launched a movement in country music, forging a bond with fans both in the U.S. and overseas in a way not seen since Garth Brooks. Born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, the trio of singer guitarist Jaren Johnston, lap-steel player Kelby Ray and drummer Neil Mason are brothers in "hell yeah!" spirit and in music. They are effortlessly cool, as real as they come and arguably the most vital addition to the country-music landscape this decade. The proof lies in both their hard-rocking live shows and their blistering new album Bury Me in My Boots, their first recorded for Big Machine Records. Onstage, the group possesses a sonic power that other touring bands couldn't match with double the players. Johnston sings and shreds with a room-filling "kiss my ass" attitude, Ray delivers slippery riffs and a phantom bass line on his steel, and Mason pulverizes the kit with the force of Zeppelin's John Bonham. Remarkably, they've harnessed that same crackling energy on Bury Me in My Boots, a collection of 14 songs that were hatched the old-fashioned way: written on the road and tested live in front of an audience.
