The Cadillac Three stake out their "Legacy"

– The Cadillac Three will be out with "Legacy" on Aug. 25 on Big Machine Records, the label announced today.
The new set from the left-of-center Nashville trio consists of 11 songs and comes a bit more than a year after "Bury Me in My Boots." The group debuted with its self-titled CD in 2012 along with releasing two EPs. The group's sound is characterized by a hard-edged, guitar and pedal steel sound with a dose of Southern rock.
The Cadillac Three, a heavy touring band, will play the Download Festival in Paris with Linkin Park on June 9 and in England with Aerosmith on June 11, Country USA in Oshkosh, Wisc. on June 23, Country Fest in Cadott, Wisc. on June 24, LakeShake country music fest in Chicago on June 25, Dauphin's Countryfest in Canada on July 1 and Calgary Stampede in Canada on July 9, Jamboree in the Hills in Morristown, Ohio on July 13 and Watershed Festival in Quincy, Wash. on July 28. The group - Kelby Ray on pedal steel, Jaren Johnston on guitar and lead vocals and on drums - opens tonight and tomorrow for Miranda Lambert at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, N.H.

Bury Me In My Boots
The Cadillac Three may not be much more country than Florida Georgia Line, who help the group out on the track "The South," but they are certainly a better Southern rock band than that hack act. This group incorporates some blues influence from The Black Crowes, mixed in some of The Georgia Satellites' winking sense of humor, to create the enjoyable Southern summer party that is "Bury Me in My Boots."

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
