NASHVILLE, TN – (September 7, 2012) – Fresh off the road from opening for Dierks Bentley on his Back To College Tour, new progressive country/rock trio The Cadillac Black
are headed straight back out on tour to open for musical legend ZZ Top,
along with Southern rock great Lynyrd Skynyrd. The nationwide tour
kicks off tonight, Friday (9/7) in Scarborough, ME, at Scarbourough Downs and wraps on Sunday, (9/16) in Kodak, TN at Smokies Stadium. The tour will be stopping next week in New York City to play the famed Beacon Theatre on Wednesday, (9/12).

When asked by The Examiner
about touring with both ZZ top and Dierks Bentley, lead vocalist and
guitarist Jaren Johnston shared, “What we’ve tried to do with The
Cadillac Black is create a sound that morphs everything we love
(country/ southern rock/ heavy blues) into one big party for the ears!
We’ve kept that same mindset with touring. We have been very blessed to
get to tour with everyone from rock and roll legends ZZ Top and Lynyrd
Skynyrd to country stars Eric Church and Dierks Bentley. As you can
imagine, those stages are quite different from each other, but honestly
we feel right at home on both. Especially because all of the fans are
there to get rowdy, booze it up and hear some great music! We play the
same exact set no matter who we are playing with, we just do what we
do.”

The Cadillac Black have emerged with a sound all of their
own, a sound that hovers between radio-ready country anthems,
hard-and-heavy rock and traditional Southern folk. Their unique “country
fuzz” sound has made them one of the most sought after touring bands
and garnered the attention of headlining acts; Eric Church, Lynyrd
Skynyrd and ZZ Top.

TCB’s debut single, “Get Your Buzz On,” will
be hitting the country radio airwaves later this month. The song is
from their self-titled and self-released debut album, now available at
all digital retailers.

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,” and 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, MTV’s Wake Brothers and the 2011 trailer for FOX’s House.
