TWANGOUT with The Cadillac Black for some #CMchat on Tues 11/27 7pm CT


So who is the Cadillac Black and why do Dierks Bentley, Eric Church and ZZ Top dig them so much?

TWANGOUT with The Cadillac Black for some Country Music Chat #CMchat with host Jessica Northey  on Tuesday November 27 at 7PM CT and find out!


We’ll be talking about their new single, their recent gigs with Country Music Star Dierks Bentley and their upcoming guest appearance on ABC Hit TV Show Nashville the following night. The men, all Nashville natives used to be part of the band American Bang, and will appear in the popular ABC show “Nashville” Wednesday 11/28. Singer Jaren Johnston even ended up having a speaking role, he got to introduce actress Clare Bowen.

While The Cadillac Black might be a brand new band – a little over a year old as of this writing –Jaren Johnston, Neil Mason and Kelby Ray have been friends and musical co-conspirators for as long as anyone can remember. They’ve weathered their wild teenage years and even wilder tours, weathered major label letdowns and major league triumphs, conquered Music Row – Johnston co-wrote Keith Urban’s #1 single “You Gonna Fly” – and crashed on the couches of strangers in far flung cities. These boys have seen more ups and downs than a Smoky Mountain tour guide.

In the spring of this year, southern-rock trio The Cadillac Black released their self-titled debut album. Though there are at least five or six equally strong candidates, logical first single is the good time of ‘Get Your Buzz On.’

‘Well, us boys, we ain’t suit-and-tie,’ Jaren Johnston states the obvious right at the start. This song has one simple goal, to take you to a down-home party and make you forget any and all worries. There are days when life really does not need to be more than that, because ‘there ain’t nothin’ wrong/with a little knock-down, drag-out, go and let your hair down/party on the farm ’til the rooster crows.’

Many current country-rock songs rely too heavily on loudness to make their point. TCB show that you don’t need to go big to impress. A great riff, creative and irreverent songwriting, a unique voice, and with only three musicians they create a sound that sets them apart from everyone else. Kelby Ray’s lap steel notes make a trip through a bass amp, eliminating the need for a bass player, and helping achieve the band’s heavier sound organically.

The Cadillac Black’s ‘Get Your Buzz On,’ is rocking good fun from one of Nashville’s most exciting bands. Turn your radio up to 11 for this one!

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
