They released their debut album, Bossier City in 2007. By 2012, with their third album Goodbye Normal Street in tow, the Turnpike Troubadours had established themselves as a premiere band in the Texas, Red Dirt, and country music scenes.

May 31st, 2019 was a melancholy day for Turnpike Troubadours fans around the world, as the guys cancelled all of their shows and announced their indefinite hiatus.

We want to again apologize for the abrupt cancellations of our shows this past weekend. We can assure you that the situation was not in our control.

We want nothing more than the opportunity for to heal, and to not put all of you through this ever again. To have a chance for any of this, we need to cancel all of our remaining tour dates. Turnpike Troubadours will go on an indefinite hiatus until a time we feel that everyone is of strong mind, body and spirit and can deliver what our fans deserve.

This week we take a look back at one of the best acts to ever come out of the Red Dirt scene as Turnpike lands our RTX Sunday Video with "Gin, Smoke, Lies."
