Lead singer Jaren Johnston owes his love of country music to his father, who was an early member of the popular 80s band, Bandana. The younger Johnston has since made a name as a hit-making songwriter. He's served as a co-writer on three songs that have topped country music charts: Jake Owen's "Beachin," Tim McGraw's "Southern Girls," and Keith Urban's "You Gonna Fly." Johnston was also credited as a writer on McGraw's No. 2 hit, "Meanwhile Back at Momma's," a track that earned heavy press attention due to the backup vocals provided by McGraw's wife, Faith Hill.
The Cadillac Three takes their name from the classic car and the number of people in the band. Johnston holds down lead vocals and guitar with Kelby Ray on bass and Neil Mason on drums. The band formed around 2013, rising from the ashes of American Bang, which featured the same lineup, plus Ben Brown. American Bang released two albums and an EP before Brown left, and the other members took on a new name.
American Bang formed from the members of two failed but well reviewed music acts on the Nashville scene. The band self-released an album under the name Bang Bang Bang, continued playing live shows and pushing the album, and caught the attention of Warner Bros. Records. With a record deal on the table, the band changed its name to American Bang to avoid being confused with another band named Bang Bang Bang. American Bang released their debut EP, Move to the Music, in 2007 and followed it with a full-length, self-titled album in 2010. Two singles from American Bang hit the U.S. charts. "Wild and Young" reached No. 20 on Mainstream Rock and No. 24 on Alternative Songs, while "Whiskey Walk" hit No. 32 on the Mainstream chart. The band broke up before any more albums could be released and The Cadillac Three emerged.
The Cadillac Three's debut album was 2013's Tennessee Mojo, which earned critical praise and charted at No. 19 on U.S. Heatseekers. The lead single "The South" featured backup vocals from country stars Florida Georgia Line, Mike Eli and Dierks Bentley. The single reached No. 32 on the Hot Country Songs chart and got the music video treatment. The band's second single, "Party Like You," was released in 2014.
The Cadillac Three's energetic shows feature pop-infused country with a party spirit. Audiences stand and dance even on the slower tunes, and Johnston uses his natural charisma to drum up fantastic audience interactions.
