Needless to say, I lit up like a kid on Christmas morning.
Honestly, Evan Felker and the Turnpike Troubadours were a game changer for me when it comes to country music, and to this day, I still have to credit them for rescuing me from the pits of bro-country hell.
Turnpike has been on a well-publicized hiatus since 2019, so I don’t need to get into all that, but damn does it feel good to hear this man sing again.
He played two songs, including “Every Girl,” and one of my personal favorites, “7&7.”
Now, I’m not saying Turnpike will be getting back together anytime soon (even though I’d give away my life savings if they did), but we’re taking some encouraging baby steps in the right direction.
