The Turnpike Troubadours Are Officially BACK

Turnpike Troubadours country music

And on April 8th, at the Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for a moment… all was right in the world.

The Turnpike Troubadours are BACK.

After nearly a three-year hiatus, Evan Felker and company took the stage at Cain’s Ballroom last night, the first night of back to back nights at the iconic venue.

The fellas kicked things off with “Every Girl,” followed by a run of some of their biggest hits including “7&7,” “Easton & Main,” “Good Lord Lorrie,” “Gin, Smoke, Lies,” “Down Here,” and more.

The set also featured a “Drunk, High, and Loud,” a fan favorite that RC Edwards recorded for his RC & The Ambers solo project, Big Country.

And finally, the show was capped off with an encore performance of “Long Drive Home.”

For those of you that missed it, I did my best to scrounge up a couple videos from the world wide web, but perhaps the best part… this is only the beginning.


“Good Lord Lorrie”

“Diamonds And Gasoline”

Here’s a live stream with a look at a good chunk of the show:
