The musical co-conspirators have a unique sound that hovers between radio-ready Country anthems, hard-and-heavy Rock ballads and traditional Southern folk. They have garnered a global following and were named UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour: Best New Band in 2014. Rolling Stone asserts, “Like Kings of Leon before them, they’re poised for their first big break in the U.K. — where they’ve sold out every headlining show for nearly two years — before conquering their U.S. home turf.” Pals since high school, TC3’s musical fusion organically builds around gritty vocals, electric guitars, thundering beats and a one-of-a-kind lap steel.
Earning ACM and Grammy nominations, Jaren’s songwriting sensibilities are highlighted with chart-topping hits for Jake Owen, Frankie Ballard and Keith Urban, in addition to singles for Tim McGraw and Dierks Bentley. Listen to other Songs Jaren Wrote. He has also been tapped as a producer on iconic Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler’s forthcoming solo project. Neil has contributed to recent songs recorded by Rascal Flatts, Miranda Lambert, A Thousand Horses and more, while frequently collaborating with Jaren and Kelby for TC3’s catalogue.
Currently on the road in the US with Florida Georgia Line’s DIG YOUR ROOTS TOUR, TC3 will bring their sonic instincts back to Europe in November for their headline DON’T FORGET THE WHISKEY TOUR. Their raw sound has long since defined TC3’s rocking vivacity and universal appeal with Chicago Sun-Times surmising, “…the majority of today’s so called country rockers are simply trying to emulate what The Cadillac Three has been from their very beginning.”
