DEADWOOD, S.D. (01/28/19) -It’ll be a night of Outlaws and Renegades as country powerhouse Travis Tritt and the hard-edged country trio from Nashville The Cadillac Three descend on Deadwood Mountain Grand Saturday, March 23 for a night of legendary hits and can’t-miss new singles.
The Cadillac Three will start the party at 8 p.m. Their new album, LEGACY, may appear to be a pretty weighty title, but this longhaired trio of Nashville natives has the shared history to claim it. Singer-guitarist Jaren Johnston, drummer Neil Mason and lap-steel player Kelby Ray have known one another since they were teens and have been sharing stages together for nearly 15 years. This summer, they'll headline their hometown's most famous venue, the Ryman Auditorium, just a few blocks from where Johnston and Ray sat in high-school math class daydreaming about one day playing the legendary hall. Their music is the sound of all things Music City.
“We're trying to build something and do it our way, which is always harder," says Johnston. "If you're going to leave something that people are actually going to remember, you can't take the easy way. So we took all of our history, mixed it with the energy of The Cadillac Three and put it into a record that makes sense of where we've been and where we're going."
After nearly a full year on the road in support of 2016's BURY ME IN MY BOOTS, their first full-length album recorded for Big Machine Records, the group returns with a more mature perspective. Johnston, Mason and Ray have experienced a lot on tour, whether opening arenas across the country on Florida Georgia Line's Dig Your Roots Tour or headlining their own consistently sold-out string of sweaty club and theater shows in the U.K. and Europe. As they prepare to head out for another big run, the old saying really is true: this band is huge overseas. Check them out at www.thecadillacthree.com.
Travis Tritt will take the stage after The Cadillac Three to keep the party rocking. Nearly 30 years after he launched his music career, the Grammy award-winning artist continues to sell-out shows and stay true and relevant to Country music fans across the globe. Among his eleven studio albums and numerous charted singles are nineteen Top 10 hits, including “Modern Day Bonnie and Clyde,” “Here’s A Quarter” and “It’s A Great Day To Be Alive.”
His career has produced millions in album sales, two Grammy award wins and multiple No. 1 singles on the Country radio charts. Most recently, Tritt released a special live 2-disc CD and DVD, titled A Man and His Guitar – Live From The Franklin Theatre, which is now available through all major digital retailers.

“This is going to be quite the night in Deadwood. Travis Tritt has quite the resume and he’ll be sharing the stage with Nashville’s own hitmakers The Cadillac Three,” said Susan Kightlinger, Deadwood Mountain Grand General Manager. “This will be a grand display of musical genres, and the atmosphere will be incredible.”
