Turnpike Troubadours

Blending folk with Cajun music and bluegrass, Oklahoma's Turnpike Troubadours emerged in 2005 as a singular new voice in country music. Initially formed by frontman Evan Felker and bassist R.C. Edwards, the band weathered lineup changes over the years with Ryan Engleman (lead guitar), Kyle Nix (fiddle), Gabe Pearson (drums), and Hank Early (pedal steel guitar and accordion) comprising their current set-up. They unleashed their debut album Bossier City in 2007 on their own label of the same name, with Diamonds & Gasoline following in 2010. Their breakthrough release came in 2012 with Goodbye Normal Street, crashing into both the Billboard 200 and Billboard Country charts with an appealing collection of semi-autobiographical and autobiographical songs. Faring even better on the charts, the band's fourth album The Turnpike Troubadours reached number 17 on the Billboard 200 and was a Top Five country album. They won over critics with its 2017 successor, A Long Way from Your Heart, featuring standout singles "Old Time Feeling (Like Before)" and "Pipe Bomb Dream." The band announced they were going on indefinite hiatus in 2019, wiping their socials clean two years later to make way for their second coming, 2023's comeback LP A Cat in the Rain, which followed three singles: "Mean Old Sun," "Chipping Mill," and "Brought Me."
