– The Cadillac Three are out with "Country Fuzz," their fourth release. The trio consisting of lead singer/guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap steel ace Kelby Ray put a hard edge to their country rock sound. The band produced 15 of the 16 songs with Dann Huff helming "Crackin' Cold Ones With The Boys." Travis Tritt and Chris Janson help out on "Hard Out Here For A Country Boy."
Aubrie Sellers releases her sophomore disc, "Far From Home," on a new label after debuting on Warner. Sellers co-produced the 12 songs with her stepfather, Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlile, Jack Ingram), and recorded at Sonic Ranch outside of El Paso, Texas. Songs include "My Love Will Not Change" featuring Steve Earle on backing harmonies. Sellers received praise for her debut, "New City Blues."
John Moreland has never been one to offer a positive vibe, but that's a bit different on "LP5." The songs continue with his plain-spoken vocals. Moreland, who hails from Oklahoma, offers electronic beats on many of the songs.
The SteelDrivers may be best known as the former band of Chris Stapleton. They have a new singer on "Bad For You," Kelvin Damrell. Fiddle player Tammy Rogers found Damrell on a YouTube video.
