Bury Me In My Boots
Big Machine Records
Bury Me In My Boots with Cadillac Three,
An album celebrating country, rock and the influences of the Southern States – The Drawl, Whiskey, Sun and so much more. Embedded in a cultural hot spot with the sun and swampy it is every shade of light and dark good and bad life that ends with the Cadillac Three stating Bury Me In My Boots.
Three standouts on the album: the musical twists and turns delivered by Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby Ray; foot-tapping whisky sipping riffs; and lyrics that tell an engaging tale. Opening with the title track, we have the painted image of boots, whisky and black roses, the lyrics whine and curl around the guitar raw in your face this is the Cadillac Three the fans flock to hear.
The album, then goes up three gears as the songs change and the slide caress your eyes, fast furious and fun, the country rock n’roll is up and running new tracks that just raise the adrenalin along with Hot Damn. Drunk Like You, with a melodic intro, then quietly sung by a laid back Jaren Johnston, like the lyrics this is intoxicating as Jaren sings ‘Nothing gets me drunk like you’; the moment a girl has more power that whiskey is dangerous!
This is an album to sit back, relax and listen to as in the lines there are hidden gems, in every song including Ship Faced, so glad they kept this to record (Others were looking to record this song!). It demands an undeniable stamp of country rock with attitude.
With fourteen songs you would expect a couple that are weaker, not Bury Me In My Boots, some just have an extra dollop of southern moonshine-fueled magic dust. The Accent stands out the opening is full driving melodic beat and then a moment of hesitation and Jaren joins the party dark, deep and beguiling. Jaren’s vocals are in complete control driving the track as he ponders looking back full of heartfelt emotive nostalgia the beat slows but still has an urgency. Bringing the album to a close like an encore, at a show you never want to end, Runnin’ Red Lights has a more urban feel a gentle urgency and will undoubtedly be a hit as the melody lingers on your ear leaving a tingle that means Cadillac Three May Want to be buried in their boots but not for a long time yet. We need to see you live, lots of times up close, a little bit dangerous and always entertaining. Cadillac Three are full of southern charm and the whip-cracking assertive rocking vibe spicing up southern country.
Cadillac Three, have written fourteen tracks of energised rocked up country steeped in southern delights, which work as a narrative within and album. For everyone who have had the joy to see them live, Graffiti, Party Like You , White Lightning and Peace Love & Dixie take you straight back to steamy, hot pack live music venues.
