On Friday, February 17th, The Cadillac Three‘s Black Roses Tour hit New York City’s, Irving Plaza. The TC3’s music can be defined as a mix of outlaw and southern rock country. The group consists of three members – Jaren Johnston (lead vocals, guitar), Kelby Ray (bass guitar, dobro, acoustic guitar, vocals), and Neil Mason (drums, vocals).
As The Cadillac Three took the New York City stage shortly after 9PM, they were greeted by an excited and energized crowd. Performing songs from both their self-titled debut album released back in 2013 and their most recent album, Bury Me In Boots, just released this August. Crowd favorites included “Bury Me In Boots”, “I’m Southern” and “Party Like You”.
Mid-show the trio busted out some tunes that they had penned for other artists including Frankie Ballard’s, “Sunshine and Whiskey,” Jake Owen’s, “American Country Love Song,” Tim McGraw’s, “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s,” and Keith Urban & Eric Church’s, “Raise Em Up.”
The crowd’s energy was at an all time high as TC3 tease-fully transitioned to “White Lightning.” Guests stomped their boots and sang-a-long to every word of the song. The group ended the show with their debut single, “The South.”
Taking the stage before The Cadillac Three was emerging country star, Aubrie Sellers. Sellers, daughter of singer-songwriters Jason Sellers & Lee Ann Womack, released her debut album, New City Blues, last January. Her sound is a mix of bluesy, rock-and-roll country. It’s unique, and brings something new to country music today. She owned the stage while playing songs from her debut album like, “Liar, Liar” and “Light of Day.” Sellers is paving her own way and certainly making a lasting impression on every crowd she gets in front of. Although Friday’s NYC show marked her last show on TC3’s Black Roses Tour, Seller is taking no break from the road. She’s heading out with Old Dominion on Miranda Lambert’s The Highway Vagabond Tour.
