That Time Kaitlin Butts Sang With Turnpike Troubadours #DistantReplay
She's one of Oklahoma's most brightly shining rising stars, and they are the biggest band in Red Dirt; for one brief moment their two worlds collided. Nearly one year ago -- on February, 25th 2017 -- at the Criterion in OKC, Turnpike Troubadours invited Kaitlin Butts on stage to sing their song "Call a Spade a Spade."
The crowd loved it, we do too.
We named Butts' debut album, Same Hell Different Devil, to our best albums of 2015 list, and her single "Don't Push It" landed inside our "Top 21 Most Favorite Texas and Red Dirt Singles of '16."
Of course Turnpike Troubadours went on to release one of the best country albums of 2017, A Long Way From Your Heart -- released nearly two years to the day after their critically acclaimed self-titled album. The Oklahoma-based band released their new single to radio, "Something to Hold On To," just this week. Be listening for it on Radio Texas, LIVE!
Both Turnpike Troubadours and Kaitlin Butts are currently in Florida, along with the majority of the scene, for the inaugural Mile 0 Fest.
