The Cadillac Three have released the video for their latest single ‘This Town Is A Ghost’. Written about the passing of frontman Jaren Johnston’s father in 2022, the deeply personal song details a life marred by the loss of a loved one.
About making the video Johnston says, “As we pulled into probably the most eerie venue in America, I steadied my hand with a cup of coffee on the bus, knowing it would be a long day. The ‘This Town Is A Ghost’ video shoot was me in a haunted pool all day, surrounded by pictures of my father and my life as a kid, while singing the song over and over again. As hard as some of the day was, I found it almost therapeutic, in a way. I was able to get out emotions I hadn’t released yet. Luke Hutcherson did a great job capturing how I felt that day. We are really proud of how it came out.”
Johnston’s father is the late Jerry Ray Johnston, drummer for the Grand Ole Opry and country music band Bandana, for which TC3‘s current tour is named.
Leaving a lasting impression on fans across the globe with their distinct sonic tendencies, The Cadillac Three’s genre-fusion tracks are rooted in country storytelling, rock grooves, and Music City homegrown psychedelic jams. You can always count on frontman Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason, and lap steel-ing bassist Kelby Ray to bring the party.
TC3’s self-branded ‘Country Fuzz’ sound can also be heard throughout Johnston’s accomplished song writing credits for other artists including Tim McGraw, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban, and Jon Pardi, as well as Tyler Hubbard’s recent single, ‘5 Foot 9’. As a producer, Johnston has also lent his talents to the likes of Kip Moore, Foo Fighters’ Chris Shifflett, and Steven Tyler, among others. Collectively, TC3’s efforts have earned the trio a number of accolades, including GRAMMY®, ACM, and CMA International Achievement Award nominations, with Johnston even receiving a CMA Triple Play for penning three No. 1 hits in a 12-month period. Known for their unpredictable live show— equally impressive and amped in a sweaty club or festival main stage— TC3 always delivers.
The band is currently on the road headlining the US with The Bandana Tour, supporting
Dierks Bentley, Kip Moore, and Koe Wetzel on select dates. The trio also added two new dates with their recently-announced Country Fuzz Festival in Maryville, TN on August 18th and 19th. Visit thecadillacthree.com for additional tour stops and more information.
