Turnpike Troubadours Background
Emerging from the Oklahoma music scene back in 2007,
this country rock band has made it their personal mission to bring good music to the masses. This mission has taken the Turnpike
Troubadours all across the nation, playing their tunes in venues all over, but it's the music they play that really matters.
Frontman Even Felker said, "When we first started playing, people couldn't have cared less that we were there. 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. I mean, they were still drinkin' plenty of beer, but before too long, they were actually
coming to hear us and asking us to play our songs, and not just covers of traditional favorites and all the other stuff we'd
Not only did audiences get more responsive, but they kept growing. Eventually, the Troubadours expanded
their horizons, evolving from tiny hole-in-the-wall clubs to selling out venues like the Firehouse Saloon in Houston. This
led them to release their debut studio album, Bossier City, in 2007. This was only the start of their long and illustrious
career as country musicians who indeed know how to crank out good music! They have since released two more studio albums in
2010 and 2012 as Diamonds & Gasoline and Goodbye Normal Street, two more examples of what the mainstream music scene could
be doing instead of recycling material from the past few decades.

Turnpike Troubadours Trivia
Do you know what inspired this band's uniquename?
According to Evan Felker, the Turnpike Troubadours lead singer, the name was borrowed from a number of influences. "Casey
Sliger (the band's original guitarist) and I spent every Friday driving from Okmulgee back to the places we grew up and the
route generally involved the Indian Nation Turnpike. The Troubadours part of the name came from an unnatural love for Steve
Earle, and from the fact that we were an acoustic duo playing folk music in beer joints. We didn't know then that the word
troubadour is the most commonly misspelled word in the English language."
