NASHVILLE, TN (March 22, 2021) – Since their adolescent dream of headlining the iconic venue just blocks from their high school, THE CADILLAC THREE not only sold-out their debut show in 2017 but are now adding a second night at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium in September. A limited number of tickets are available for September 1 and the September 2 show goes on sale this Friday (3/26) at 10:00A CT via https://ryman.com/cadillacthree. Both shows will begin at 8:00P CT.
“For the three of us, being born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee has always been special. We’ve worn it as a badge of honor all around the world, and if we had written down the dream scenario for how to celebrate our 10-year anniversary, it would have been by playing a show to all our fans, friends and family at the Ryman Auditorium in our hometown,” expresses drummer Neil Mason. “To have the first night sell out and add a second night … that’s as good as it gets. We can’t wait for Sept. 1st and 2nd!”
Reminiscing on what was slated to be their return after the pandemic forced a reschedule, TC3 found another way to bring the show to fans. The trio dialed up the past with an audio encore on Country Fuzz Radio (airs each week on Big Machine Radio through the iHeart or TuneIn app and on bigmachineradio.com). LISTEN to a preview here: https://TC3.lnk.to/CFRadio_RymanPR. Their 90-minute set not only cemented a legacy that grew from playing music during their formative years, but to stages across the globe. The hometown date also offered an appropriate celebration for the release of their LEGACY album (Big Machine Records). NPR Music proclaimed, “The lyrics of the trio’s sturdy songs tend to unfurl descriptions of unruly good times, inherited blue-collar pride and reluctant domestication, and often feel like they’re written in defiance of elitist attitudes toward perceptions of southernness.” CMT noted, “The Cadillac Three is a rare breed in today’s music” as they continue to thrive as “one of the best live acts in Country music” (Taste of Country).
Both shows this Fall will bring TC3’s unabashed energy, impressive song catalogue, amplified decibel levels and a gratitude for the “Mother Church.” To keep fans protected, Ryman Auditorium strictly complies with safety regulations that include socially distanced seating, enhanced cleaning practices and mandatory masks for all.
Officially commemorating 10 years as The Cadillac Three, Neil, Jaren Johnston (lead vocal/guitar) and Kelby Ray (lap steel/bass) spent the bulk of the last decade averaging over 200 live shows a year. They have continued to focus on a connection with others hosting COUNTRY FUZZ PRESENTS livestreams The Basement for their own performances and as a landing place for other artists; supported their crew with special #STAYHOME merch, plus teamed up with Second Harvest to help feed Middle Tennessee. Resolute in their creativity, TC3 also managed to release two albums in 2020 – COUNTRY FUZZ and TABASCO & SWEET TEA.
The trio recently partnered with NIVA’s #SAVEOURSTAGES to launch a video for “Long After Last Call” and highlighted those faced with the livelihood challenges of COVID-19. Watch here. The ACM Awards Group of the Year nominee’s freewheeling vibe finds fans from all sides of the world relishing in their unpredictable sets – the live shows may sound a little different, but the music always plays on.
