"The Years Go Fast" for The Cadillac Three

Monday, September 11, 2023 – The Cadillac Three's sixth studio album, "The Years Go Fast," is dropping Oct. 27 on Big Machine Label Group.

The country fuzz trio also released the lead single, "Young and Hungry," on Friday.

"'Young and Hungry' is actually a song that we've known since the beginning of this band," drummer Neil Mason said. "It was originally by The Jane Shermans, which was a band featuring the song's producer, Angelo, and his wife, Eulene. We loved that song forever, and Jaren had the idea to take it and insert the story of him and his wife into it."

"When you say, 'The years go fast,' it really makes sense," front man Jaren Johnston said. "We've been together a long time, in some shape or fashion. We met when we were 14 or 15, in high school. I think the track kind of embodies the whole album. I'm so thankful that we came across that idea, because it's probably the most uplifting thing on the record."

In 2020 the Nashville trio of Johnston, Mason and Kelby Ray released a pair of albums in "Country Fuzz" and "Tabasco & Sweet Tea," then entered upheaval.

"We put out 31 songs in one year. It was like, let's give people a breather. Let's give us a breather," Johnston said. "We were coming off COVID and then my dad passed away. It's a whole different life now. Talk about having some shit to write about."

"This record does have a lot of growth, a lot of hurt and heartbreak," said Mason, who is the drummer. "We are a little more grown up now, but we're still doing the same thing we were doing in the beginning."

The track list was not released.

CD reviews for The Cadillac Three

CD review - Country Fuzz It's not unusual for country artists to include a few party anthems on their albums. These tracks help lighten the mood among a record's heavier moments and make for fun concert numbers. The Cadillac Three, however, have never seen a good-time-Saturday-night-song they didn't like. "Country Fuzz" is like a week filled with seven Saturday nights. Yes, song titles like "Crackin' Cold Ones With The Boys" and "Whiskey and Smoke" are self-explanatory track names. ...
CD review - Legacy The Cadillac Three's bio is stacked with amazing bullet points that partially explains their mutant rockabilly-heavy-on-the-rock cocktail. The born-and-raised Nashville trio - drummer/vocalist Neil Mason, bassist/dobroist/vocalist Kelby Ray Caldwell and guitarist/lead vocalist 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 ...
CD review - Bury Me In My Boots 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 ...
