American country music group Turnpike Troubadours gained huge prominence in the music industry. The group was founded in 2005 while starting their own imprint named Bossier City Records back in 2007. The band went on to release five studio albums. Their self-titled 2015 album gained a positive response while making a way for itself at number 17 on the Billboard 200.
