Gwen Sebastian called on her favorite ladies to pull their brain power together for her romantic ode to road life single, “Cadillac.”
Sebastian’s pals, April Lewis and Miranda Lambert, came to her rescue to co-write the drifter dream that embodied a narrator on the run. Headed for the West Coast fantasy some people long for their whole lives, the track slowly idealizes a life revolving around a “tear-drop trailer” and “a Bakersfield boy with a guitar callous.”
Combining their wanderlust spirits together in the writing room, the women pulled together a lyric glamorizing the California dream while still kicking some country into the vacation.
“It’s been a while since I’ve released new music and “Cadillac” best represents the sound of my upcoming album. I wrote it with Miranda Lambert & April Lewis on a girl’s trip to California. The lyrics definitely were inspired by the California vibe,” Sebastian said of the single.
“My great friend and band mate @gwensebastian has a new single out today,” she wrote. “Her and I, and my soul sister @ape_lewis wrote it together on a girls trip to the west coast . It was the first song April had ever written. She loves music more than anyone I know. And Gwen has dedicated her life to music as have I. So needless to say this is a special day for a special song to come out into the world. Glad to share it with people I love. Y’all support some female singer /songwriters today and buy this. Thanks for the love.”
While Lambert has contributed to a number of projects with her other closest colleagues in the business, “Cadillac” marks her first single to hit radio. She’s previously worked with Pistol Annies bandmembers Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe on their solo projects and remains heavily involved whenever she heads into the studio for her own endeavors.
“Cadillac” will be featured on Sebastian’s forthcoming record, Once Upon a Time in the West, which is due out in November.
