About The Cadillac Three
Leaving a lasting impression on fans across the globe with their instinctive sonic tendencies, The Cadillac Three prove they are Nashville's most versatile band – spending their formative years playing music together in garages before graduating to sold-out venues and being added to major festival lineups. Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap-steel player Kelby Ray have been performing together for over a decade and adding to their following of both Country and Rock loyalists. TC3 boasts chart-topping tracks and album cuts for Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Steven Tyler, to name a few. Mason wrote “Payback” alongside Aaron Eshuis and Ryan Hurd, whose single version featured TC3 and followed Rascal Flatts’ previous release of the track. Both collectively and individually, they have been nominated for Grammy® and ACM Awards.
TC3 remained resolute in their creativity in 2020, releasing two albums – February’s Country Fuzz and October’s surprise Tabasco & Sweet Tea – hosting Country Fuzz Radio and serving the music community. “The Cadillac Three’s contribution to a year like no other can be measured in albums released, songs released (28), live-streamed shows recorded, donations collected, venues supported, mouths fed and positive messages sent. Landing a spot on the revered list [ACM Awards], among their friends, collaborators, and peers, feels like a victory for the trio who has never stopped putting in the work,” observes American Songwriter. With “Long After Last Call” Rolling Stone noted TC3 “Sound the Alarm for Clubs in Crisis” while their “Bridges” music video shoot teamed up with Music Venue Alliance Nashville.
TC3’s freewheeling vibe finds fans from all sides of the world relishing in their unpredictable sets, touring on their own and with A-listers Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan, plus iconic rockers Metallica and Slayer. As a popular international act, TC3 was named Best New Band at the 2014 UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards and received a 2019 CMA International Award nomination for International Artist Achievement.
