Turnpike Troubadours is an American country music group from Oklahoma founded in 2005.[1][2] They started their own imprint, Bossier City Records, in 2007 and have released five studio albums. Their self-titled 2015 album peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200.

Career[edit]

The band was formed in 2007, with original members including Evan Felker and R.C. Edwards. Bossier City was recorded a month after the formation after the band, in order to have a recording to sell at live shows.[3] Felker later said the musical arrangements were "not a good representation" of what the band later became.[3] The songs “Easton and Main” and “Bossier City” were re-recorded for their 2015 self-titled album.[3]
