The Cadillac Three, Sellers, Moreland, The SteelDrivers release new music
Friday, February 7, 2020
– The Cadillac Three are out with "Country Fuzz," their fourth release. The trio consisting of lead singer/guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap steel ace Kelby Ray put a hard edge to their country rock sound. The band produced 15 of the 16 songs with Dann Huff helming "Crackin' Cold Ones With The Boys." Travis Tritt and Chris Janson help out on "Hard Out Here For A Country Boy."
Aubrie Sellers releases her sophomore disc, "Far From Home," on a new label after debuting on Warner. Sellers co-produced the 12 songs with her stepfather, Frank Liddell (Miranda Lambert, Brandi Carlile, Jack Ingram), and recorded at Sonic Ranch outside of El Paso, Texas. Songs include "My Love Will Not Change" featuring Steve Earle on backing harmonies. Sellers received praise for her debut, "New City Blues."
John Moreland has never been one to offer a positive vibe, but that's a bit different on "LP5." The songs continue with his plain-spoken vocals. Moreland, who hails from Oklahoma, offers electronic beats on many of the songs.
The SteelDrivers may be best known as the former band of Chris Stapleton. They have a new singer on "Bad For You," Kelvin Damrell. Fiddle player Tammy Rogers found Damrell on a YouTube video.

The Cadillac Three's bio is stacked with amazing bullet points that

Jaren Johnston - have extensive indie-rock-and-beyond resumes, including
their previous incarnation as Bang Bang Bang which morphed into the sadly
overlooked American Bang. Johnston, Caldwell and Mason remained ...
The Cadillac Three may not be much more country than Florida Georgia Line, who help the group out on the track "The South," but they are certainly a better Southern rock band than that hack act. This group incorporates some blues influence from The Black Crowes, mixed in some of The Georgia Satellites' winking sense of humor, to create the enjoyable Southern summer party that is "Bury Me in My Boots."
The group reveals its funny side through "Ship Faced," a ...
