It’s been tough to watch everything unfold with the greatest country band out there, Turnpike Troubadours.

The band, as you know, is now on an indefinite hiatus. The future is completely uncertain…


“To our fans: We want to again apologize for the abrupt cancellations of our shows this past weekend. We can assure you that the situation was not in our control.

We want nothing more than the opportunity for to heal, and to not put all of you through this ever again. To have a chance for any of this, we need to cancel all of our remaining tour dates. Turnpike Troubadours will go on an indefinite hiatus until a time we feel that everyone is of strong mind, body and spirit and can deliver what our fans deserve.

Refunds for all scheduled shows can be made at point of purchase.
To all of you who have given us so much, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You believed in us, you raised us up, you stuck by us and you gave us more unconditional love than any band could ask for. We are humbled.

We ask that you please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we work to support and encourage.
Thank you all for everything. We love you!”

Fiddle player Kyle Nix reiterated that sentiment by re-posting the statement and adding:

I can’t express how much you guys have meant to us & everything you have done for us- and CANNOT Thank You enough!✌????

As of now, no other band members have shared thoughts publicly, but if they do expect the same class – saying thanks to the fans.

Here’s a throwback of the band doing what they do best on Texas Music Scene in 2012.
