The Cadillac Black
Lead Vocalist Jaren Johnston Produced Dierks Bentley’s Summer EP
Nashville, TN – (August 8, 2012) – It is already proving to be one hot summer for new progressive country/rock trio The Cadillac Black and the heat will continue to rise as they open for Dierks Bentley on his Back To College Tour this
August. The tour will visit the SEC campuses of The University of
Georgia (8/20), The University of South Carolina (8/21), and The Grove
at The University of Mississippi (8/22). This marks the second tour that
Dierks has tapped The Cadillac Black to open and they have also landed
coveted slots opening for Eric Church, Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top.
The tour comes on the heels of The Cadillac Black’s lead vocalist Jaren Johnston producing Dierks’ four-song summer EP titled Country & Cold Cans, available August 21 on iTunes.
“I’m so
excited to have had the chance to produce the EP. Dierks and his band
have such a great vibe and play so well together,” shares Jaren. “Dierks
asked me if we could get some of that ‘dirt’ we put on our music and I
said, ‘well, hell yeah!’ I’m super stoked on how it turned out and I

adjective-strewn things but when you boil it all down there’s only one

While The
Cadillac Black might be a brand new band, native Nashvillians Jaren
Johnston (guitar), Neil Mason (drums) and Kelby Ray (lap steel) have
been friends and musical co-conspirators for as long as anyone can
remember. They’ve weathered their wild teenage years and even wilder
tours, weathered major label letdowns and major league triumphs,
conquered Music Row – Johnston co-wrote Keith Urban’s #1 single “You
Gonna Fly,” earned a nomination for Music Row Magazine’s 2012
Breakthrough Songwriter Of The Year. Their music has been featured on
the CW’s Vampire Diaries and Hart of Dixie, CBS’ CSI Miami, VH1’s Baseball Wives, and the 2011 trailer for FOX’s House.
The Cadillac Black are playing shows nationwide in support of their
self-titled debut album, available now at all digital retailers.
