The Cadillac Three release the new video for their super cut “Bridges”, which is taken from their latest album “Tabasco & Sweet Tea” on Big Machine Records which dropped last autumn.
The band joined forces with Red Bull and the Music Venue Alliance Nashville (MVAN) to transform esteemed Nashville venue Exit/In into a private, pop-up skate park for a series of socially distanced skate sessions, as the band filmed their unique video featuring skateboard pro’ Jake Wooton.
“I was extremely into skateboarding when I was a teenager growing up in Nashville, but there were literally no public skate parks. We had to brave the Capitol or Legislative Plaza downtown in hopes that we could get a good day in without getting arrested,” lead singer and guitarist Jaren Johnston says.
“It was amazing to team up with Red Bull and the EXIT/IN and build a skatepark during the pandemic. Even cooler to play ‘Bridges’ in a video with incredible skaters including pro’ Jake Wooten. What an experience!”
The Matt Paskert-directed clip features the Nashville native trio and Tennessee native and pro’ skateboarder Jake Wooten, throughout the years on their various stages before coming together at the rock club turned skate park with a custom mini ramp and adjacent quarter-to-quarter hip feature.
The pop-up set of Red Bull Skate Nash Stages was not only a literal platform for the entertainers, but a symbolised trajectory of purpose for both the musicians and skateboarders.
“It was a really great experience to get to work with The Cadillac Three on set. Being inside of a music venue that has such history while they were jamming out on a ramp built inside of it, is as unique as it gets. I’m stoked that they were able to connect me in with the story the song told. I’m sure none of us will forget the experience,” shared Jake.
The Cadillac Three also have reason to celebrate with their first ACM Awards Group of the Year nomination, and their 10th Anniversary tour, currently underway in the US and due to call in to the UK and Ireland to close the tour, including a show at London’s Roundhouse. Brent Cobb is special guest on the tour.
The trio have also been hosting their ‘Garage Radio’ series on Planet Rock, which is recorded in their native Nashville and airs every Saturday night.
