The Turnpike Troubadours are set to perform at Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival on Saturday, September 28, directly before headliner Neil Young. Tickets for the festival will be available for purchase starting this Thursday, April 25, at 12:00 PM PT. More details can be found on the event's official website at www.ohanafest.com.

This upcoming performance is just the latest addition to the band's extensive 2024 tour schedule. Their tour includes headline shows at notable venues such as Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre for two nights, Chicago’s The Salt Shed, St. Louis’ The Factory, Macon’s Macon Amphitheater, and Wichita’s INTRUST Bank Arena. Additionally, the band will be supporting Zach Bryan on his stadium tour this summer, with stops at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium, Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field for two nights, and Minneapolis’ U.S. Bank Stadium.

The tour marks a significant year for Turnpike Troubadours, who have achieved their best first-week sales with their new album, "A Cat in the Rain" (Bossier City Records/Thirty Tigers). To celebrate the release, the band collaborated with SiriusXM’s Outlaw Country for an intimate session at Tulsa’s historic The Church Studio. The session aired multiple times on the channel over the past weekend.

The album "A Cat in the Rain" was produced by Shooter Jennings and recorded at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Recording Studios and Dave’s Room in Los Angeles. It has received critical acclaim and made it onto several "Best of 2023" lists, including those by Rolling Stone, The AV Club, Brooklyn Vegan, No Depression, Wide Open Country, Whiskey Riff, and more. The Associated Press praised the album, saying, "they’ve returned with the kind of ferocity that feels destined to put them right back on that long-term upward trajectory…The earnestness is palpable." Billboard commented on the group’s "superior, tightly-knit musicianship and ever maturing, evocative lyricism," while Spin highlighted that "the Oklahoma group is better than ever…one of the most beloved groups in country and roots music."

A Cat in the Rain

As pioneers of the Red Dirt music scene and one of America’s most beloved bands, Turnpike Troubadours have amassed a massive following throughout their career. The band has accumulated over 1.5 billion streams globally and sold more than 1.28 million equivalent units to date. Originally from Tahlequah, OK, the band members are Evan Felker (vocals, guitar), Kyle Nix (fiddle), Ryan Engleman (electric guitar), RC Edwards (bass), Gabe Pearson (drums), and Hank Early (steel, accordion). Since their debut in 2005, Turnpike Troubadours have released six studio albums, including their 2017 self-released "A Long Way From Your Heart," which reached #3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and #20 on the all-genre Billboard 200. American Songwriter and Austin American Statesman have praised the band for its "subtle authenticity" and described their work as "a rousing, thought-provoking country short story collection." Further cementing their status, the band recently made their late-night television debut on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame.
