Preamble The licenses for most software are designed to take away your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This General Public License applies to most of the Free Software Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to your programs, too. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights. These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it. For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their rights. We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and (2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy, distribute and/or modify the software. Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original authors' reputations. Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all. The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and modification follow. GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR COPYING, DISTRIBUTION AND MODIFICATION 0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below, refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program" means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law: that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it, either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you". Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the Program (independent of having been made by running the Program). Whether that is true depends on what the Program does. The Cadillac Three | For The Country Record | Page 2

The Cadillac Three are currently finishing up their tour in Europe after their latest stint in the UK and a hugely successful year. This is the most recent in a number of visits to this side of the Atlantic for the band, their audiences growing each time just as they have been in the United States. With country radio singles ‘The South’ and ‘Party Like You’ under their belts, they’re looking forward to a year of finishing up their major label debut album (under Big Machine Records), plenty of touring (including a return to the UK in March) and more singles being sent to country radio. I recently caught up with Kelby Ray (bass/dobro/acoustic guitar/vocals) just before they played in Birmingham, England, to talk about their regular trips to Europe, their last single ‘Party Like You’, the climate at country radio, lead singer Jaren Johnston’s recent Grammy nominations, the Spotify debate, what’s coming up for them in 2015 (in regards the release of a new album especially), and whether gay country artists will finally be accepted in Nashville. Read on for more!

The Cadillac Three @ The Garage, London, UK | December 9th, 2014 – Review

ef58fe72998208c46926c9b25b01577a

After winning Best New Band at the Classic Rock Awards, hosted by the British Classic Rock Magazine, The Cadillac Three’s popularity in the UK could not have been higher heading into their first headlining UK tour. Kicking it off with an appearance at Planet Rockstock festival, the added UK publicity really helped boost their tour, and they were visibly taken-aback when they sold out every night of their tour, an impressive feat from self-professed ‘rednecks from Nashville, Tennessee’.

On one of country music’s biggest nights, country artists including Eli Young Band, Florida Georgia Line, and The Band Perry took a moment to honor troops at Big Machine Label Group’s CMA Awards after-party sponsored by Crown Royal Regal Apple.

Country’s artists had the opportunity to give back to U.S. soldiers last night by packing bags with items rarely available overseas such as tablets, earbuds, armbands, music players, etc. The packed bags will be shipped to active duty service men and women overseas with the help from Packages From Home, Crown Royal’s national charity partner.

iTunes UK Country Chart Roundup – Week of 8th July, 2014

640x360

As another week of Dolly fever continues to burn, ‘Blue Smoke – The Best of’ still leads the way on Country Albums. Close behind, ‘The Very Best of Dolly Parton’ holds tightly to #3, while ‘Greatest Hits’ is down at #19. Meanwhile, Sony’s latest American Heartland compilation, ‘Legends of Country’ is strong at #2, and the Nashville soundtrack remains a hit with listeners following the season 2 finale on UK screens last week. ‘The Music of Nashville: Season 2, Volume 2’ helms the collections scattered across the top 25 by charting at #4, its immediate predecessor at #8 and Clare Bowen’s second season tracks together at #9, in addition to the second half of the first season at #12. We also have Kacey Musgraves’ ‘Same Trailer Different Park’ at #5 following her recent UK tour, and The Cadillac Three’s ‘Tennessee Mojo’ at #11 after their appearance at Sonisphere and their own gig in London at the weekend.

The Cadillac Three ‘Party Like You’ – Single Review

the cadillac three party like you

Following much buzz and lead singer Jaren Johnston’s increasingly successful hit songwriting career, The Cadillac Three are releasing their second single on Big Machine Records, ‘Party Like You’, to country radio. The first, 2013’s ‘The South’ (review here), utilized guest appearances from Dierks Bentley and label mates Mike Eli (Eli Young Band) and Florida Georgia Line, and has since sold 165,000 units, hovering just outside the top 30 on both Billboard’s Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay. It was a catchy track that I personally felt might launch them much higher into the country music public consciousness, but perhaps with a group as different as this, they need time to build a fanbase among mainstream country consumers.

Eric Church/The Cadillac Three @ The Ritz, Manchester, UK | March 1, 2014 – Review

eric fucking church

It would possibly be an understatement to say that I was fangirl-level excited for this show. As my various reviews would indicate, I’m a big fan of Eric and the music he produces on an artistic and enjoyable level but I was also excited to see The Cadillac Three in action after I’ve been following their career progress for over a year now. We got to drink a beer with them backstage before the show (which is possibly one of the coolest things ever, absolutely no professionalism here) and I have got to say that I was pleasantly surprised at just how friendly and genuine they were. A lot of bands might be a bit blasé to a couple of unknown journalists dropping by to feel famous and steal alcohol but they were really nice guys and that can be a rare thing.
