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.
My Favorite Album is a podcast unpacking the
great works of pop music. Each episode features a different
songwriter or musician discussing their favorite album of all time
- their history with it, the making of the album, individual songs
and the album’s influence on their own music.
