The Cadillac Three Share ‘Legacy’ Title Track [LISTEN]
The Cadillac Three have released the title track from their upcoming album, Legacy. Readers can press play above to hear the sweet, sentimental ode to a lifelong love, accompanied by wedding and family photos from the band's members.
"Legacy" was written by TC3's Jaren Johnston, along with Ben Burgess and Laura Veltz.
“"Legacy" is a song I am super proud of,” Johnston tells American Songwriter. “In the past, I’ve given away songs of this caliber because I didn’t feel our band was ready to take on that role. Or maybe I wasn’t ready to sing those types of lyrics. I think our band is ready, and I am there now. This is the perfect song for where we all are in our lives.”

An emotional ballad, "Legacy" talks about how it isn't the professional achievements or accolades that define a legacy, but love and family: "You're in everything coming off these strings / Baby you're the lead; I'm just the harmony / Behind every great man, they say there's a woman that made him that way / Looking at you, girl, it ain't hard to see."
"When I'm gone, my name carved in stone, that dash between the years is all that I left here / It won't be songs or stages I sang on," the chorus of "Legacy" goes. "Girl, as hall of fame as I want to be / A lifetime of you loving me / Yeah, that's a legacy ..."
"Legacy" is available for download now on iTunes; the album is available for pre-order, and will be released on Aug. 25. The Cadillac Three are currently on the road for their Black Roses Tour; tickets are available on their website.
