When the Turnpike Troubadours first announced their return, the two questions on everybody’s minds were: 1) When can I see you live? And 2) Is there a new album coming out?
Right off the bat an unsubstantiated rumor started circulating that Turnpike had been working on a new album with Shooter Jennings producing, and that possibly Evan Felker had a solo album coming as well.
However, after we saw pictures of what appeared to be the boys at FAME Recording Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, it really got the wheels spinning.
However, Evan Felker has officially put those rumors to rest at Red Rocks Amphitheater this past weekend.
“I heard a rumor that we’ve been working on a record… and that rumor is true. I’m gonna play something new for ya”
Titled “Cat In The Rain,” Evan debuted the song the weekend before at the White Oak Music Hall in Houston, Texas.
Will the album be out this year? Who really knows… but it’s coming, and that’s good enough for me.
