The Cadillac Three have dropped a new single in the form of ‘Hard Out Here For A Country Boy’ featuring Chris Janson and Travis Tritt, a new song from their upcoming album 'Country Fuzz'. Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston and drummer Neil Mason wrote the track with Jeremy Stover while out on the road.
“We were playing some tour dates with Travis Tritt and The Charlie Daniels Band when ‘Hard Out Here For A Country Boy’ was written. He was on the bus when we were playing through some songs and with his big signature twang belted out the line. I grew up listening to Travis, and he’s a big reason I sing the way I do -- that gritty twang thing. We knew he had to be on the song,” shared Jaren.
Neil adds, “This song was kind of a jumping off point for the record and one of the first we cut. We’ve all been buddies for years and Chris heard the song playing in the background during a call with Jaren. It was cool that he quickly wanted to be a part of it and cut the vocal the next day.”
