NASHVILLE, TN (August 6, 2020) – Finding a new (and safe) rhythm for live performances, THE CADILLAC THREE will curate global stream experiences from The Basement in Nashville beginning August 13 and running through September. The local haunt has been a special venue for the Music City born-and-bred trio since their early days of playing and watching music together. Artists will alternate utilizing the space for Country Fuzz Presents dates and drive donations to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee with a goal of 100,000 meals in 100 days. Fans will watch from their own homes via a secure link straight to each show. Purchase tickets now via CountryFuzzPresents.com.
"We are so excited to have partnered with Grimey and The Basement in our hometown to bring high quality live stream concerts from not only TC3 but a number of our artist friends that have been sidelined from touring as well.

ABOUT THE CADILLAC THREE:
Leaving a lasting impression on fans across the globe with their instinctive sonic tendencies, THE CADILLAC THREE prove they are Nashville's most versatile band. Made up of singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason, and lap-steel player Kelby Ray, the trio have been performing together for over a decade and adding to their following of both Country and Rock loyalists. On their fourth album, COUNTRY FUZZ (Big Machine Records), the musical co-conspirators further that fusion sound with songs like "Labels," "Heat" and "Slow Rollin'," while also exploring heavy Funk on tracks like the super-charged "Blue El Camino" and the devil disco "The Jam." Funneling Southern-to-the-core sensibilities into their own catalogue, TC3 boasts chart-topping tracks and album cuts for Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Steven Tyler, to name a few. Mason wrote “Payback” alongside Aaron Eshuis and Ryan Hurd, whose version features TC3 as his current single and follows Rascal Flatts previous release of the track. TC3 also put their spin on Post Malone’s hit “Circles,” releasing a stripped-down production of the song and music video. Both collectively and individually, Johnston, Mason, and Ray have been nominated for GRAMMY and ACM Awards. Known for their unpredictable live show, TC3 has toured the U.S. and Europe both on their own and with A-listers Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Luke Bryan, veterans Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels, plus iconic rockers Metallica and Slayer. As a popular international act, TC3 was named Best New Band at the 2014 UK Classic Rock Roll of Honour Awards and received a 2019 CMA International Award nomination for International Artist Achievement.
