The Cadillac Three Release New Video for “American Slang”

It seems to be a busy day for new releases as The Cadillac Three sneak a bit of “American Slang” into our playlist here at Country Music News Blog. The track is the latest release off their album, “Legacy” due out this Friday August 25th, 2017. The group is currently on tour in the UK on their “Long Hair Don’t Care”.

“American Slang” seems to follow along the same bluesy-southern rock trend artists like Zac Brown and Blackberry Smoke have been toeing the line for now for some time. Upbeat and authentic, ‘slang tells the sum of the bands whole as it serves as an origin story of sorts for the things that make up The Cadillac Three. Take a listen and let us know what you think!

August 23rd: Southern rockers The Cadillac Three have released a brand new video for their UK single ‘American Slang’. The track has been added straight to the Radio 2 B-list and is taken from their latest album ‘Legacy’, which is out this Friday on Big Machine Records and available for pre-order here.

The track premiered on Clash who describe the new album as “hard-livin’ country rock hymns.” You can watch the video for ‘American Slang’ here.

‘American Slang’ pulses with an anthemic road-trip feel, imbued with nostalgia for The Cadillac Three’s hometown heritage and reflecting on life on the road with tenderness and pride. The track was written with Lori McKenna of The Bird And The Rifle and produced by The Cadillac Three, creating a huge, spacious sound with driving kick drum and delicate lead guitar.

The track’s accompanying video aligns dreamlike visuals with the song’s heartfelt lyrics, spaced between retro TV fuzz. Time-lapse footage of open highways and cities by night incite a sensation of distance and life on the road.

Having already played main stage slots at Download Festivals in both France and the UK this summer, the trio are touring the US currently before embarking on another world tour this autumn.

The Nashville natives will be taking their electrifying performances around the globe throughout their ‘Long Hair Don’t Care’ tour, with nine UK dates featuring special guests Brothers Osborne in November, including a highly anticipated London show at O2 Kentish Town Forum – see the UK dates below.
