Turnpike Troubadours Are Comin’ Back to East Texas
Finally! This is a show nearly three years in the making. One that has been built up so much over the past 36 months, we can hardly contain ourselves. Turnpike Troubadours will be making their Cowboy's night club debut on Friday night Feb. 27.
Do you remember the last time Turnpike was in Tyler?
It was right before they really "broke out," back around May of 2012, at Electric Cowboy. That has been way too long.
In 2012 the Oklahoma-based band took home the TRRMA New Band of the Year Award, and they have been on a tear ever since. Their 2012 album 'Goodbye Normal Street' was a certified monster hit for the guys and peaked at No. 57 on the Billboard 200. It had four big radio hits (Gin, Smoke, Lies; Before the Devil Knows We're Dead; Good Lord Lorrie and Wrecked).
But the band has been a tough get for many venues the last couple years, opting instead of over-saturating Texas and Oklahoma, to scale it back and be more selective with their booking. They've worked to take on a wider national market, playing most of their shows out of Texas, and all over the U.S.
So, it's safe to say, barring some crazy turn of events, this will likely be their only show in Tyler or Longview in 2015, so don't miss it. Tickets are on sale now, right here.
