Turnpike Troubadours is not your run-of-the-mill country band. The band prides itself on being a part of the Red Dirt movement; a mix of folk, bluegrass, country and honky tonk named after the color of the soil in Oklahoma. It was there, that Turnpike Troubadours began in 2005 and released their debut album, Bossier City, within a month of their formation. In 2007, they released their own record label, Bossier City Records, to have the ability to raise their profile in their own style.
They released two more albums in the following years; 2010’s Diamonds & Gasoline and 2012’s Goodbye Normal Street, which reached No. 14 on the U.S. Country chart and No. 3 on the U.S. Folk chart.
The band’s 2015 self-titled album was a commercial breakthrough, rising to No. 3 on the U.S. Country chart and cracking the Top 20 of the Billboard 200. Their most recent album, A Long Way From Your Heart, once again reached the No. 3 position on the U.S. Country chart and No. 1 in both the U.S. Indie and Folk charts.
