The Cadillac Three announce surprise album dropping Friday

Tuesday, October 20, 2020 – Raucous hard-edged country band The Cadillac Three announced this morning that the trio will release an album this Friday.

"Tabasco & Sweet Tea" will be out on Big Machine Records. This is the group's second CD this year as "Country Fuzz" dropped in February.

"As we finished the last record, we knew we were only tapping the surface with songs like 'The Jam' for where we could go next musically and found ourselves inspired to dive into these sounds that we had never explored before as a band," said drummer Neil Mason.

"We've always had a lot of influences, but ultimately found ourselves thinking about what we were listening to in high school - The Meters, Stevie Wonder, Medeski Martin & Wood and John Scofield."

Lead singer and guitarist Jaren Johnston said, "This album is a science project - constantly moving in different directions but keeping one cohesive feel throughout. We kind of have this innate thing going after all these years so it's was cool to kind of stretch into some new musical spaces with elements of a DJ set that flows from track to track, but mixed with 80's funk vibes and jam-band flow over hardcore country lyrics."

"Tabasco & Sweet Tea" explores hybrid sounds throughout the 11 modern-meets-nostalgia tracks. The music is being offered at a reduced price for the first week so "it's more accessible during a time when many are not spending as much on music, but need it more than ever," according to a press release.

"We wouldn't be where we are without our fans," said bassist Kelby Ray. "We lost the ability to tour and know many of our fans have also lost their ability to work consistently this year so we wanted to find a way to provide this album as cost effectively as we could. Our hope is that everyone who wants 'Tabasco & Sweet Tea' can get it without breaking the bank."

On Oct. 27, TC3 will debut songs from "Tabasco & Sweet Tea" with a livestream for audiences in North America at 7 p.m. central.

CD reviews for The Cadillac Three

CD review - Country Fuzz It's not unusual for country artists to include a few party anthems on their albums. These tracks help lighten the mood among a record's heavier moments and make for fun concert numbers. The Cadillac Three, however, have never seen a good-time-Saturday-night-song they didn't like. "Country Fuzz" is like a week filled with seven Saturday nights. Yes, song titles like "Crackin' Cold Ones With The Boys" and "Whiskey and Smoke" are self-explanatory track names. ...
CD review - Legacy The Cadillac Three's bio is stacked with amazing bullet points that partially explains their mutant rockabilly-heavy-on-the-rock cocktail. The born-and-raised Nashville trio - drummer/vocalist Neil Mason, bassist/dobroist/vocalist Kelby Ray Caldwell and guitarist/lead vocalist Jaren Johnston - have extensive indie-rock-and-beyond resumes, including their previous incarnation as Bang Bang Bang which morphed into the sadly overlooked American Bang. Johnston, Caldwell and Mason remained ...
CD review - 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." The group reveals its funny side through "Ship Faced," a ...
