The Cadillac Three’s LEGACY is Available Now

High-intensity live shows and Southern Rock amplification laced with pure Country lyrics – THE CADILLAC THREE continue to give the fans what they crave. The bold trio offers a signature does of badass and charm throughout the new album LEGACY, out worldwide on Big Machine Records now. A cornerstone of their career, TC3’s musicianship shines across the 11 tracks they solely recorded and produced.

Anticipation surmounting ahead of the official release, NPR First Listen previewed each track: Esteemed music critic Jewly Hight assessed, “This may seem like an odd thing to say of a band fronted by one of the more successful songwriters in Nashville, but there’s actually something that contributes even more to the distinctive identity of Cadillac Three albums than the songs themselves, and that’s feel.”

Nashville natives Jaren Johnston, (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Kelby Ray (Lap Steel Guitar) and Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) pack a huge punch on the album, which features only one outside collaboration with revered singer/songwriter Lori McKenna. From their boundary-pushing anthems, GRAMMY®-nominated songwriting, sold-out club shows, massive festival gigs alongside acts like Aerosmith to tours with Eric Church and Florida Georgia Line, TC3 leave a mark with longtime fans and first-time listeners. Sounds Like Nashville is already raving about the, “bold release that includes just as much hell raising as it does sentimental ballads.”

LEGACY caught the attention of notable press prior to release:

“They’ve ended up with what may be their most cohesive and distinct album yet.” | THE TENNESSEAN

ROLLING STONE COUNTRY | “The mid-tempo anthem [‘American Slang’] shows the band’s growth, with a danceable Southern rock track tailor-made for arena-sized sing-alongs.”

“…usher these hard-livin’ country rock hymns into the world…” | CLASH

“Legacy launches with plenty of swagger […’Cadillacin’’] The grooving guitar, soaring lap steel and striking percussion showcase the band’s talent for writing catchy music that the listener immediately latches onto.” | SOUNDS LIKE NASHVILLE

NPR MUSIC | “The lyrics of the trio’s sturdy songs tend to unfurl descriptions of unruly good times, inherited blue-collar pride and reluctant domestication, and often feel like they’re written in defiance of elitist attitudes toward perceptions of southernness.”

“The Southern-rock maestros […] broaden the scope on their new album [with] a shift toward more grown-up themes, while ‘American Slang’ glistens with Kings of Leon-esque grandeur.” | ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
