Turnpike Troubadours Hit Milestone with Self Titled 3rd Album's Debut at #3 on Country Charts & Top 20 on Billboard Top 200
Nashville, TN - Acclaimed Oklahoma band Turnpike Troubadours have achieved their highest chart debut ever with their self-titled third release. The Turnpike Troubadours (Bossier City/Thirty Tigers) reached #17 overall on the Billboard Top 200, #3 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, and #2 on the Independent Albums Chart. What makes these numbers even more impressive is the fact that despite a massive following, Turnpike Troubadours have flown relatively under the radar, achieving success as true independents. Playboy Magazine wrote that they are “wrenching country music out of a staid rut and turning it into something else entirely” and Noisey writes that the new album is “more mature with a few lessons learned, but still ready to raise some hell”. The new album premiered exclusively via Noisey along with a full-length interview. Click HERE to read/stream.
Not only are Turnpike Troubadours a force to be reckoned with everywhere from Colorado to Texas to Oklahoma, they regularly headline venues ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 across the country. They have sold out The Troubadour in Los Angeles and will be returning to LA on October 7th performing at The El Rey Theatre.
Turnpike Troubadours put on one of the most fiery live performances you’ll ever see, however it’s their great songwriting that truly sets them apart. The new album contains 11 original songs featuring the quintet’s signature blend of roots, rock, folk, and raw country played with grit, passion, and authenticity.
Standouts include the compelling storytelling skills of lead vocalist Evan Felker showcased in “Bird Hunters” and “The Mercury”.
Turnpike Troubadours are building massive success with their DYI attitude, honest and clever songwriting, instrumental process and hard work. Do yourself and a favor and don’t overlook them.
Turnpike Troubadours will be in NYC with The Black Lillies on November 4th. For additional tour dates and information visit their official website.
