The Oklahoma-based red dirt music band will preview its upcoming album Thursday night at the House of Blues, and we have tickets to give away to a party of four.
“Americana” isn’t the only name for music that sounds more like what country music used to than what it does now. In Oklahoma, Red Dirt Music holds to the same classic honky tonk roots, with perhaps a little more folk and a lot more sky. Thursday night, Red Dirt band The Turnpike Troubadours will play the House of Blues in support of the band’s self-titled fourth album, with is due out September 18.
SavingCountryMusic.com reviewed a show last year, saying
They’re known for taking their sweet time between releases, and that patience has resulted in some of the best country music you can find from the region. The Turnpike Troubadours remain the ideal bridge if you’re looking to convert your mainstream country-listening friends over to the independent side of the world. But with growing crowds and interest in the band, it makes one wonder how long they can hold out doing it mostly DIY. Their next album promises to be a monster if it simply holds par with their previous releases, and could be one to solidify their place in the national country music consciousness.
