I think it’s safe to say that Turnpike Troubadours’ upcoming album A Cat In The Rain is the most highly-anticipated album in country music this year.

Set to be released on August 25th, the new album was produced by Shooter Jennings, and recorded at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Recording Studios, as well as Dave’s Room in Los Angeles, California.

Turnpike Troubadours kicked off the project with “Mean Old Sun,” their first new song in over five years and now, they’re back with the second cut off the project… dropping this week.

“Out this Friday June 23rd: “Chipping Mill” – the second single off of our upcoming new album ‘A Cat in the Rain.'”

Get excited…

Turnpike Troubadours Announce 2023 Tour

The fellas also announced a slew of new tour dates this summer to promote their new record.

Originally from Tahlequah, OK, Turnpike Troubadours is Evan Felker (vocals, guitar), Kyle Nix (fiddle), Ryan Engleman (electric guitar), RC Edwards (bass), Gabe Pearson (drums) and Hank Early.

With awesome openers hand-picked by the band themselves at each date, and legendary venues of varying sizes all across the country, the Turnpike Troubadours are set to embark on something special with this tour.

Headlining shows at New York’s Beacon Theater, two nights at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Los Angeles’ Greek Theater and three nights at Fort Worth’s Billy Bob’s, among many more, the band will also perform at select festivals this summer including Newport, RI’s Newport Folk Festival, Pryor, OK’s Born & Raised Festival, Memphis, TN’s Mempho Music Festival and Charleston’s Riverfront Revival Music Festival.

Openers will include some heavy hitters like Hayes Carll, Pony Bradshaw, Muscadine Bloodline, Kaitlin Butts, Morgan Wade, Reckless Kelly, Jason Boland and more.

And this goes without saying, but if they’re coming to a city near you, I suggest you get yourself a ticket.
