Full-package southern sounds that include folk, Cajun, and country rock make Turnpike Troubadours an influential roots band. With influences from artists such as Woody Guthrie and Waylon Jennings, the band significantly embraces and investigates contemporary rural life while keeping a close eye on history. Currently, the band is led by Evan Felker, with a lineup that includes RC Edwards, Kyle Nile, Ryan Engleman, Gabriel Pearson, and Hank Early.
The band formed in 2005, with Felker and Edwards being the founding members. That same year, they started creating their debut album entitled "Bossier City," which was released in 2007. It took them another three years to release a follow-up, which became their sophomore "Diamonds and Gasoline." Slowly, their band members expanded. In 2012, their album "Goodbye Normal Street" came out to rave reviews and substantial airplay. The record went on to chart on Billboard 200 and Billboard Country Albums. Another three years after, they released a self-titled album, which followed suit on its predecessor on the charts. Before their hiatus in 2019, they released "A Long Way from Your Heart."
A year after their comeback, Turnpike Troubadours will be on the road again with country favorites Old Crow Medicine Show and Lucero. Old Crow Medicine Show is best known for their blending of classic honky-tonk with contemporary country, coming out with songs such as "Wagon Wheel." On the other hand, Lucero is Memphis' power rock and pop band, with gritty records such as "All a Man Should Do." See them all at the Capital One Arena on Friday, May 5.
