Firstly G'day , secondly , I was on you tube the other day looking at some Blackberry Smoke videos and on the side bar video suggestions wotsit I found another band to add to the collection of bands that just rock.....I discovered quite the brilliant trio called Cadillac Three
Before the boys got Cadillaced, all three members were in American Bang, which also featured Ben Brown as a fourth member; Mason and Brown had been in the band Llama before that.
Between 2011 and 2013, Johnston co-wrote "You Gonna Fly" for Keith Urban, "Southern Girl" for Tim McGraw, and "Days of Gold" for Jake Owen (with Neil Mason).
the boys hace rather brilliantly combined outlaw country and classic Southern rock, born and bred out of Nashville, Tennessee. The Cadillac Three have their roots in the rock group American Bang, who were formed in 2005 by lead guitarist Ben Brown; drummer Neil Mason; singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jaren Johnston; and bassist Kelby Ray.
Originally called Bang Bang Bang, the group released an album, I Shot the King, under that name in 2005, but switched to the name American Bang upon signing with Warner Bros.
American Bang released an EP, Move to the Music, in 2007, and a self-titled full-length in 2010 with Reprise Records, but after the album didnt find an audience, Brown departed for a solo career.
DANGED IF WE DIDNT
The remaining trio members changed their name to Cadillac Black, but once again discovered they'd chosen a name already in use; signing with Big Machine Records, they switched their handle to the Cadillac Three, and issued the self-titled full-length album The Cadillac Three in the spring of 2013.
In addition to making a name for themselves as performers, the Cadillac Three have generated chart-friendly material for other acts
Jaren Johnson co-wrote the songs "You're Gonna Fly" for Keith Urban, "Southern Girl" for Tim McGraw, and "Days of Gold" for Jake Owen. In February 2014, the Cadillac Three enjoyed some chart action with the single "The South," which featured guest appearances from Dierks Bentley, Eli Young, and Florida Georgia Line.
PARTY LIKE YOU
Six months later, they dropped the single and video for the song "Party Like You," followed by the ballad "White Lightning" in April 2015. It took another year before Bury Me in My Boots, the band's third album, finally saw release in the summer of 2016. The trio returned in August 2017 with Legacy, an album that saw the group strip back to basics.
And rest assured , i'm gonna get as much C3 as I can get my hands on ...I suggest you do the same.
