Although the band originated in Oklahoma, Turnpike Troubadours have swept the red dirt music scene, particularly in Texas, packing dance halls and venues across the state for the better part of the last decade. Playing more than 100 shows per year, lead singer Evan Felker, bassist R.C. Edwards, fiddler Kyle Nix, guitarist Ryan Engleman, drummer Gabe Pearson and steel player Hank Early, are arguably the most popular red dirt music group today.
The band’s unique sound combined with Felker’s impeccable songwriting ability brings to life ballads of small-town love, challenge, loss and heartache that goes beyond penning harmonies to compelling storytelling with reoccurring, relatable characters. Lorrie, the most notable character, makes an appearance in several of the band’s hits including, “Good Lord Lorrie,” “The Mercury” and most recently, “The Housefire” from the band’s latest album “A Long Way from Your Heart.” Learn more at rodeohouston.com/concerts.
