  • Turnpike Troubadours is a red-dirt country band.
  • I chose Turnpike Troubadours because today’s a long hot summer day.  A great song for sipping Ice Tea or beer.
  • In the Gin, Smoke, Lies video the guys talk about old school bluegrass and the guy is wearing a Wild Turkey hat.
  • The guys, especially in the song Before the Devil Knows We’re Dead, reminds me of old school Alabama and Charlie Daniels.
  • Everyone knows if you’re going to play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in the band.

Is how a cowgirl like you could ever look my way
I was planted by glory with a half written story
Songs spilling out off of every page
