TICKET PURCHASE INCLUDES THE PURCHASE OF THE NEW ALBUM!
Every ticket purchase includes the purchase of a CD copy of Turnpike Troubadours’ upcoming, self-titled album, which is due September 18th. Attendees of the Dallas show will receive the album a week earlier at the event as part of their ticket purchase*
The overwhelming success that Turnpike Troubadours have had on the so-called Red Dirt circuit of the flyover states says a lot about the quintet’s authenticity and fire, particularly because their music is not exactly what that scene in known for producing. “When we first started playing, people couldn’t have cared less that we were there,” recalls Troubadours’ frontman Evan Felker. “They were there to drink beer and raise hell and they didn’t really care what music was playing while they did it. But as we went on and as we got better, they started to listen.”
Not only did the crowds get more attentive, they kept getting bigger. As time went on, and the Troubadours broadened their touring circle, they moved on from tiny clubs in the more obscure corners of the Sooner state and started hitting – and selling out – prestigious venues like Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, the Firehouse Saloon in Houston and Antone’s in Austin.
Over the course of the past five years, Felker, bassist RC Edwards, fiddle player Kyle Nix, guitarist Ryan Engleman and drummer Gabe Pearson, have honed the rowdy, quick-witted sound that’s brought folks of all stripes together in front of those stages. And on Goodbye Normal Street, the Troubadours’ third full-length album, the band takes that blend of nice and easy and nice and rough and distills it into a 43-minute ride that takes in the scenery of America’s Heartland and the inner workings of a group of 20-somethings on a quest for something better.
