The Cadillac Three: 'Bury Me In My Boots' Album Review

Nashville's The Cadillac Three are the band bringing southern country rock to the masses and their latest installment 'Bury Me In My Boots' is a mammoth leap towards achieving that. I was very excited when this landed in my inbox as the bands first album 'Tennessee Mojo' made me an instant fan. Let's have a listen then..

The blend of sounds that The Cadillac Three offer are simply stunning. They effortlessly merge driving riffs with pop style choruses and melodies. The blend shifts from heavy as f*ck to pure sing-along in seconds. Opener 'Bury Me In My Boots' and 

Singles 'Graffiti' and 'Drunk Like You' show a more emotional and heartfelt side to the band that is nice to see as it showcases a slightly different side to the band. 'This Accent' is a definite highlight with genius lyrics and songwriting behind it. 

Upbeat hoedown tracks 'Slide', 'Soundtrack To A Six Pack' and 'Party Like You' really bring a party feel to the album which is definitely what the band were going for (I mean just look at the song titles). 'White Lightning' is maybe the biggest leap towards a newer sense of direction with some prominent group vocals and the biggest shift towards a lower key song with more pop sensibilities. 'Peace Love & Dixie' shows a bit more of a moody and gritty side to the band sitting on the bottom of Jaren Johnstons vocal range at times and not moving up a key. The riff throughout is a true head bobber.
The 14 track phenomenon flies by and you can't finish without a smile on your face. It isn't leaps and bounds away from the last album in terms of progressing with their sound but why would you need to when your sound is this good! Their defined sound provides an easy mix to add influences and play around with a solid formula. This album will definitely keep The Cadillac Three on their musical podium.
