ACM-nominated Southern rock hitmakers the Cadillac Three join me backstage at the CMC Rocks QLD festival to talk about one of their biggest influences - rock legend Tom Petty and his 1994 album ‘Wildflowers’. We talk about producer Rick Rubin’s influence on Petty’s songwriting, the Americana sound of the record, the difference between a Heartbreakers album and an album almost all the Heartbreakers play on and how 'You Wreck Me’ was two letters away from being a disaster.
Plus, Jaren, Kelby and Neil talk about how they know whether a song they’ve written is a 'Cadillac Three’ song, slipping Tom Petty references into their tunes, Heartbreaker Mike Campbell’s guitar influence and why they get angry calls from record industry mogul Scott Borchetta.
