Following in quick succession from 2016’s Bury Me In Boots record The Cadillac Three returns with their brand new studio album Legacy.
According to the band’s drummer Neil Mason, the Nashville based trio re-entered the studio the day their last record was released. The Cadillac Three were so excited about a batch of new tracks which they had written that they wanted to get these numbers down immediately, unbeknown to anyone else at the time. By late 2016 the group had cut the whole album and produced it themselves.
The result of the band’s creative phase is arguably their strongest release to date. Immediately after your first listen, you can’t help yourself from revisiting songs very quickly – they almost become instant favourites. Legacy sure gets you hooked very quickly.
We all know Jaren Johnston is an incredible songwriter, of course, he has penned Number 1 hit singles for the likes of Jake Owen, Keith Urban, Billy Currington and Frankie Ballard, to name but a few. Several of the tracks on Legacy could easily follow suit; yes it really is that good. Like the great country singer/songwriters of our time, Johnston is a superb storyteller.
So strong is the album that several of the tracks have already been released as radio singles. These include good time party anthem “Dang If We Didn’t” and the foot stomping country number “American Slang”. The latter of which is very infectious and is one of several standout tracks on the album.
Legacy showcases the many facets of The Cadillac Three, from the huge slide fueled southern rock numbers like “Cadillacin’” and “Tennessee”, which each, in turn, sit perfectly side by side with more traditional country based numbers like “Hank & Jesus” and “Long Hair Don’t Care”.
Johnston has written some wonderful heartfelt love songs in the past including both “Runnin’ Red Lights” and “White Lightning” on their last album Bury Me In Boots, and on Legacy, this continues with “Love Me Like Liquor” featuring the beautiful vocals of Lori McKenna, which certainly hits the same spot.
With this now TC3’s third album, the band has delivered one of the standout records of 2017. This band keep on going from strength to strength.
The Cadillac Three will be returning to the UK in November for a headline tour in support of their latest offering alongside Brothers Osbourne.
Legacy by The Cadillac Three will be released on 25th August via Big Machine Records.
