The Cadillac Three are a high-energy trio who describes their sound as “country fuzz.”You may have seen them on the hit TV show “Nashville” and now you can see them right here in the Motor City when they will perform at our WYCD Downtown Hoedown on Sunday June 1st. Edwards & Lee had a chance to sit down with Jaren, Kelby & Neil and get to know them a little better, and these guys are very personable and pretty funny off stage too!
Composed of three Nashville natives – Jaren Johnston (Guitar & Lead Vocals), Kelby Ray (Bass Steel Guitar, Dobro, Acoustic & Vocals) and Neil Mason (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) – all three guys have weathered wild adventures as a Country group with a rockin’ edge.
They have opened for acts like ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Eric Church and Eli Young Band. Johnston is known for penning Keith Urban’s #1 smash “You Gonna Fly,” two new cuts on Tim McGraw’s latest record ‘Two Lanes Of Freedom’ and several other tunes for acts like Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans and Dierks Bentley.
It’s always fun getting to know new country artists, and Chuck & Linda really enjoyed finding out more about these country rockers who give major props to Dierks Bentley for giving them their first big shot in the business, and also think he is ‘the nicest and most genuine’ of all the country artists they have met so far! Listen to the unedited interview which contains an “F-Bomb” reference….but it’s NOT what you may expect!
