Turnpike Troubadours

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.

Band’s frontman and co-founder Evan Felker has maintained a low profile while staying away from the media spotlight. The music all-star has been distancing himself from the high-profile controversy that kept him and his band in focus in 2018 and 2019. The band went on an indefinite hiatus back in 2019 and it has sparked speculations amongst fans. The hiatus came in a shock after all the tickets were canceled and the frontman was struggling with addiction issues leading the members to lay low for a while.
