with Bonnie Whitmore "The simple fact is that James McMurtry may be the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation..." Stephen King | Entertainment WeeklyJAMES McMURTRY RELEASES COMPLICATED GAME, HIS FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN SIX YEARS"Back before Napster and Spotify, we toured to promote record sales. Now we make records to promote tour dates."AUSTIN, Texas: James McMurtry spins stories with a poets pen (Long Island Sound) and a painters precision (She Loves Me). Proof: The acclaimed songwriters new Complicated Game. McMurtrys first collection in six years spotlights a craftsman in absolutely peak form as he turns from political toward personal (These Things Ive Come to Know, You Got to Me). The lyrical theme is mostly about relationships, McMurtry says. Its also a little about the big old world verses the poor little farmer or fisherman. I never make a conscious decision about what to write about.Complicated Game delivers McMurtrys trademark story songs time and again (Copper Canteen, Deavers Crossing), but the record brings a new (and certainly no less energetic) sonic approach. Simply put: McMurtry brings forth a another new masterpiece.Howm I Gonna Find You Now, the records lead single boasts buoyant banjos and driving drums endlessly energetic. Whiplash vocals further frenzy the beat. I've got a cup of black coffee so I don't get lazy/I've got a rattle in the dashboard driving me crazy, McMurtry effectively raps. If I hit it with my fist, itll quit for a little while/Gonna have to stop to smoke in another mile/Headed into town gonna meet you at the mercantile/Take you to the Sonic get you grinning like a crocodile.Such vibrant vignettes consistently turn heads. They have for a quarter century now. Clearly, hes only improving with time. James McMurtry is one of my very few favorite songwriters on Earth and these days he's working at the top of his game, says Americana all-star Jason Isbell. He has that rare gift of being able to make a listener laugh out loud at one line and choke up at the next. I dont think anybody writes better lyrics. James writes like he's lived a lifetime, echoes iconic roots rocker John Mellencamp. Yes. Spin South Dakota. Youll hear.Further evidence: McMurtrys Just Us Kids (2008) and Childish Things (2005). The former earned his highest Billboard 200 chart position in nearly two decades and notched Americana Music Award nominations. Meanwhile, Childish Things scored endless critical praise and spent six full weeks topping the Americana Music Radio chart in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, Childish Things won the Americana Music AssociationsAlbum of the Year and We Cant Make It Here was named the rapidly rising organization's Song of the Year.Of course, Complicated Game doubles down on literate storytelling longtime enthusiasts expect. Recall high watermarks past: Childish Things, Choctaw Bingo, Peter Pan, Levelland, and Out Here in the Middle only begin the list. (Yes, Robert Earl Keen covered those last two, Levelland remaining a live staple.) Just Us Kids alone includes fan favorites Hurricane Party, Ruby and Carlos and Youd a Thought. High watermarks deliver equal measures depth and breadth and pierce hearts with sharp sociopolitical commentary (Fireline Road).More history: McMurtry critically lauded first album Too Long in the Wasteland (1989) was produced by John Mellencamp and marked the beginning of a series of acclaimed projects for Columbia and Sugar Hill Records. In 1996, McMurtry received a Grammy nomination for Long Form Music Video for Where'd You Hide the Body. Additionally, It Had to Happen (1997) received the American Indie Award for Best Americana Album.In 2004, McMurtry released the universally lauded Live in Aught-Three on Compadre Records. The following year, Childish Things notched arguably his most critical praise, spending six weeks at No. 1 on the Americana Music Radio Chart in 2005 and 2006. In September 2006, Childish Things and We Cant Make It Here won the Americana Music Awards for Album and Song of the Year, respectively. McMurtry received more Americana Music Award nominations for 2008s Just Us Kids. This album marked his highest Billboard 200 chart position in more than nearly two decades.In 2009, Live in Europe was released, capturing the McMurtry bands first European tour and extraordinary live set. Along with seasoned band members Ronnie Johnson, Daren Hess, and Tim Holt, the disc features special guests Ian McLagan (The Faces) and Jon Dee Graham (True Believers, Skunks). Also, for the first time ever, video of the James McMurtry Bands live performance is available on the included DVD.The poignant lyrics of his immense catalog still ring true today. In 2011, We Cant Make It Here was cited among The Nations Best Protest Songs Ever. We Cant Make It Here, Bob Lefsetz wrote, has stood the test of time because of its unmitigated truth.McMurtry tours year round and consistently throws down unparalleled powerhouse performances. The Washington Post notes: Much attention is paid to James McMurtrys lyrics and rightfully so: He creates a novels worth of emotion and experience in four minutes of blisteringly stark couplets. What gets overlooked, however, is that hes an accomplished rock guitar player ... serious stuff, imparted by a singularly serious band.

THE CADILLAC THREEIt may be a ballsy move for The Cadillac Three to name their new album LEGACY, but if any country band has the shared history to lay claim to such a weighty title, it's the longhaired trio of Nashville natives.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. Johnston's connection to the Ryman goes back even further: his father has been a drummer at the Grand Ole Opry since Jaren was a child. And now he has a son of his own, who, like his old man, will be well versed in all the sounds that make up both Music City and The Cadillac Three, from country and blues to rock & roll.So, yeah, "legacy" looks good on this band."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 back in November for another big run, for The Cadillac Three, the old sayingreally is true: this band is huge overseas."Europe showed us that we should bet on ourselves. It was a big gamble the first time we went over there," says Mason, "but the shows and the fans have continued to grow." "And going overseas reinforced that we wanted to get more music out more quickly," adds Ray. "They go through singles really quickly over there. They want more, more, more and that encouraged us to go into the studio, knock this album out and keep going." All that travel, from city to state, country to continent, could decimate a lesser band, but it only served to creatively inspire the mighty TC3. They wrote many of the 11 songs that make up LEGACY on the road, cut the tracks on rare days off in Nashville and then recorded all of Johnston's vocals one of the most "country" voices in the genre in the back lounge of their bus in between shows, adding a crackling sense of vitality to LEGACY.They also produced the album themselves."We knew what we wanted to do with this record. Instead of putting it together in bits and pieces, we started with a batch of songs and then picked a single," Johnston says. "That's how this shit should be done."That back-to-basics approach to making music yielded the band's most infectious single to date: the woozy singalong"Dang If We Didn't." Written, as is most of the album, by Johnston and Mason (here, with Jonathan Singleton; other times with songwriters like Laura Veltz and Angelo Petraglia), "Dang If We Didn't" teases fans with its ambiguous title, before revealing what the guys actually did in the chorus: get drunk last night."When you're a songwriter, you can be critical of song titles," says Johnston. "But with 'Dang If We Didn't,' I thought it was a little bit mysterious. It makes you wonder, 'Dang if we didn't do what?'""Eat pizza last night," quips Mason. "It could be anything.""American Slang" rivals "Dang If We Didn't" in its grandeur. It's a huge song, akin to Tom Petty's "Free Fallin'" or The Cadillac Three's own "Graffiti," off BURY ME IN MY BOOTS. Lori McKenna (Little Big Town's "Girl Crush") began writing the tune with the intention of having The Cadillac Three finish it. "We are vampires on Hollywood Boulevard / angels and sinners of our hometown streets," go the lyrics, painting a picture of life's rebels, before amassive country-radio chorus kicks in: "We are the back roads, dirty water shore bankswe are born and raised on American slang."The constant throughout LEGACY, however, lies in the players: as on all three of The Cadillac Three's albums, only Johnston, Mason and Ray are the musicians. There's no guest keyboard player, no second percussionist and certainly no bassist. Ray holds down the low end on his lap steel.Especially on the standout LEGACY track "Take Me to the Bottom," which features Johnston reaching high for a breathtaking falsetto. "'Take Me to the Bottom' has the best bass sound of anything I've ever done," says Ray, who also keeps things greasy on the intense "Tennessee." A thrashing love song, it evokes the stomp of ZZ Top a favorite of TC3 and features a lyrical shout-out to progressive country hero Sturgill Simpson, a kindred spirit of the band.No matter the influence, though, the trio stays faithful to their own unique sound throughout LEGACY. "Hank & Jesus" glides along with Tennessee twang; "Demolition Man" is distinguished by the space between the notes; and the swaggering "Cadillacin'" is a band anthem. "We don't put anything on our albums that we can't re-create live," says Mason. "If there is a TC3 rule, it's that: keep it honest."Honesty, or authenticity, is a favorite buzzword around Nashville. But few artists come to it as naturally as The Cadillac Three. These guys couldn't fake it if they tried. In the album's title track, they offer a heart-on-the-sleeve testimony to what's really important at the end of one's days: love and a family tree.When Mason and Ray heard "Legacy," co-written by Johnston, they flipped, and pushed for it to be the title of the record. "We're far enough along in our careers where doing an album called LEGACY doesn't feel presumptuous to me," says Mason.Not when you run through The Cadillac Three's milestones. It's all there, from boundary-pushing albums,Grammy-nominated No. 1 songwriting across genres and fan-favorite singles to sold out club shows and massive festival gigs alongside Aerosmith."With this album, we're continuing to build this thing we've created. We're touring nonstop, headlining shows in the U.K., playing the Ryman, and putting out a new record," says Johnston. "Shit, that's a pretty good legacy sofar."
