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

2 min read

Bury Me In My Boots is the second studio album to be released by the American Southern rock band, The Cadillac Three. Jaren Johnston (guitar and lead vocals), Kelby Ray (dobro, acoustic guitar, lap steel and vocals) and Neil Mason (drums, percussion and vocals) make up the band.

The Cadillac Three - Bury Me In My BootsThe album Bury Me In My Boots is a proud celebration of the Southern lifestyle and ruggedness. This album will bring the country out of you as The Cadillac Three sing about cars, smoking cigarettes, whiskey, beer and hot women in their typical Southern twang to raging guitars and driving drums.  When listening through tracks it was clear that The Cadillac Three have a particular sound from which they never really diverge.  The fourteen songs on the album can be grouped together based on their feel and thematic content as follows:

Bury Me In My Boots, Graffiti, Soundtrack To A Sixpack and Peace,Love & Dixie all explore the Southern life, especially kickin’ back Nashville style with some good friends. All these songs have a similar mid-tempo rock feel. If you want to get a party started Slide, Party Like You and Hot Damn will do the trick. These are all about having a hell of a good time with a whiskey in one hand, a beer in the other and a good lookin’ gal on your arm. Drunk Like You, Buzzin’, White Lightning and Runnin’ Lights all cover how a woman can make a man feel, how addictive a woman can be in a way that Jack Daniels can’t and how a woman can steal their heart faster than a whiskey shot. I suppose this is the way in which Southern guys express love then? Ship Faced certainly stands out from the lot, not due to it’s subject matter, because drinking whiskey has been covered by just about every other song on this album, but rather its chilled out groove. The South, which features the talent of Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and Mike Eli, and This Accent are both odes to to their heritage; their patriotism shines through in these tracks.

The Cadillac Three put the rock in rockin’ in their new album, Bury Me In My Boots. If you want to feel a little bit country and a little bit rock ’n roll, it’s the perfect Soundtrack To A Sixpack, so drop the needle on this vinyl, open a cold one and take a ‘sip sip sippy’.
