Here at New York Country Swag, we are big fans of The Cadillac Three not only for their music but for their unequivocal dedication to their fans and to their home state of Tennessee. In a time where touring is halted and live-streaming is at an all-time high, the men of TC3 found a way to use their platform to not only perform for fans but also give back to their community.
The Cadillac Three introduced and created ‘COUNTRY FUZZ PRESENTS GLOBAL LIVE STREAM SERIES,’ which supports Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee with ticketed shows from the Nashville venue, The Basement. We got a chance to chat with Neil from TC3 to learn more about how the band chose to get involved with this noble cause.
“I started doing a little reading about organizations here in Nashville,” he shared with us after a discussion with his wife about kids missing out on free lunch in schools this year, “What we came across was Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.” Neil went on to share with us that partnering with an organization that already has the infrastructure to provide meals to families was a no brainer for him and his bandmates.
“We set a goal to provide 100 thousand meals in the next 100 days for the community,” he went on to add. Each dollar donated will provide four meals to a family in need, who may not have access to daily school lunches because of Covid-19. The band set out to raise $25,000 in 100 days for the cause, which will provide the 100,000 meals to families in need.
The highly curated concert series will run through September, with special guests already confirmed such as A Thousand Horses, Lauren Jenkins, and Tenille Arts, among many other talents. The series will give musicians an outlet to play live, fans a chance to listen to live music again, and of course, and perhaps most importantly – to raise money for a very important cause.
Last night, The Cadillac Three played their first show in six months and jammed to some of their biggest hits and some deep cuts, all while reminding fans of the bigger message to help them make it to their fundraising goal. Furthermore, the guys got to help give back to a venue that is still rebuilding from the tornado that hit Nashville in March, and of course the pandemic.
