A high-energy trio fusing outlaw country and classic Southern rock, The Cadillac Three are a rock band born and bred out of Nashville, Tennessee. The Cadillac Three have their roots in the rock group American Bang, who were formed in 2005 by lead guitarist Ben Brown; drummer Neil Mason; singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jaren Johnston; and bassist Kelby Ray. Originally called Bang Bang Bang, the group released an album, I Shot the King, under that name in 2005, but switched to the name American Bang upon signing with Warner Bros. Records in 2006. American Bang released an EP, Move to the Music, in 2007, and a self-titled full-length in 2010 with Reprise Records, but after the album failed to find an audience, Brown departed for a solo career. The remaining trio members changed their name to Cadillac Black, but once again discovered they'd chosen a name already in use; signing with Big Machine Records, they switched their handle to The Cadillac Three.
