Now in their 10th year together, the Turnpike Troubadours are playing more gigs and playing those gigs farther away from their native Oklahoma than they were even three years ago.

They handle fame well, still being grateful for their fans — their smiles at Meet n Greets show that — and continually bringing new and unique songs to those fans.

The Turnpike Troubadours are made up of RC Edwards on bass, Kyle Nix on fiddle, Ryan Engleman on guitar, Evan Felker on lead vocals, Gabriel Pearson on drums, and Hank Early on keyboards and accordion. And they all kick in with vocals.

The Troubadours played the Event Center at Grand Theater in late December, to a sold-out crowd. They covered many of their older tunes, but many off the new CD, A Long Way From Your Heart, of which the first release “Housefire” has already reached No. 1 spot on numerous charts.

Opening was Charley Crockett and his band. A real treat to watch and to listen to, definitely worth a trip to a Charley Crockett concert if you haven’t already seen one. If you have, you know exactly what I’m talking about!
