The Cadillac Three have a new album 'Legacy' set for release August 25th via Big Machine Records. As a taster for the upcoming album the band today (07.07.2017) released a video for the impressive title cut, which finds the boys in a more reflective mood than we've been accustomed to in recent times. The band will return to the UK in November for a headline tour with support from Broken Witt Rebels and Brothers Osborne. This tour will. I'm sure, be one of the hottest tickets of the year. Much more about The Cadillac Three follows including tour dates and the video for 'Legacy'.
From adolescent basement sessions to walking down the aisle, Music City born-and-bred trio The Cadillac Three were destined to leave a mark. The title track from their forthcoming album offers a rare sonic twist for the notoriously full-amped Cadillac and is out today in advance of LEGACY, out August 25 on Big Machine Records. American Songwriter premiered ‘Legacy’, saying the band are “...exploring deeper themes and experimenting with new sounds.”

A natural progression for the band who has been creating music together since high school, Legacy offers a deep understanding of what is truly important – relationships. Grammy-nominated, chart-topping songwriter and frontman Jaren Johnston penned the track alongside Ben Burgess and Laura Veltz delicately crafting lyrics like:
When I’m gone, my name carved in stone
Over husband, friend, and father
Survived by son, wife, and daughter
It won’t be songs that keep me livin’ on
Girl, as hall of fame as I wanna be
It’s a lot of love and a little family tree
Hell, that’s a legacy
"’Legacy’ is a song I am super proud of! In the past, I’ve given away songs of this caliber because I didn't feel our band was ready to take on that role … or maybe I wasn't ready to sing those types of lyrics, shared Jaren with American Songwriter. “I think our band is ready, and I am there now. This is the perfect song for where we all are in our lives.”
Another part of TC3’s past and future is their hometown heritage. On August 31st, they will take the stage for their first-ever headline show at the historic Ryman Auditorium. “You grow up seeing your favourite bands with your buddies, date nights with your love and special shows with your family here,” explains Neil. “The Ryman is an institution, and we’re really excited – and honoured – to share the night with so many people who’ve been a part of our journey. It’s always a crazy ride with The Cadillac Three!”
The band also returns to their second home of the UK as part of their ‘Long Hair Don’t Care’ tour, playing nine dates across the country, including a highly anticipated show in the capital at O2 Kentish Town Forum.
They will be joined by special guests Brothers Osborne and Broken Witt Rebels. “We all may be from different parts of the world but it’s really cool to have the spirit of a song bring us together!” said Kelby. “We’re really looking forward to introducing some new tunes.”
