The Cadillac Black

Rocking Roots

Whiskey Soaked Redemption
Jaren Johnston says this older song needed to be rescued.

The Cadillac Black's self-titled debut is a fantastically energetic, musically adventurous southern rock record that showcases great songwriting and talented musicianship. The trio, comprised of Jaren Johnston, Kelby Ray and Neil Mason, features loud open-tuned and steel guitars in gritty, foot-stomping songs about good times and southern life.

The Cadillac Black has recently toured with ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Dierks Bentley, and made a cameo appearance on the new ABC television drama, "Nashville," performing their new single "Get Your Buzz On." For more information and tour dates, visit www.thecadillacblack.com.
