“Well, I left my heart in Tulsa/ on the corner of Easton & Main/ on the Cain’s Ballroom floor…”
Nothing like playing one of your biggest songs in the venue that inspired it.
If you know anything about Turnpike Troubadours (which bless your heart if you don’t), you know that Tulsa holds a special place in the band’s heart.
While formed nearly a hundred miles down the road in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, Tulsa was where the group first started gaining traction in the music scene.
Throughout their ups and downs, they have always nodded their heads to the city and, more importantly, the state that helped them gain their start. Hence, you always see an Oklahoma flag on their amps during a set.
Regardless of what you believe, they have given a nod in their comeback music video, “Mean Old Sun.” In the video, they perform their 2023 single on the venue floor, highlighting the intimacy of the 1,800 capacity of Cain’s.
The crowd is always insane when Turnpike graces the stage in Tulsa, but when “Easton & Main” comes up on the setlist in Cain’s Ballroom, the crowd is electrified.
Nothing like playing “Easton & Main” on the corner of Easton and Main.
Here’s the scene from their very first show back following the hiatus:
One of the best throwback videos filmed by Red Dirt Nation of the tune from 2017.
