Are the Turnpike Troubadours Hinting at Comeback?


TAHLEQUAH, OK – After nearly two years of silence, the Turnpike Troubadours posted an intriguing new photo of the band Monday on social media.

The last that social media had heard from the band was in Jan. 2020. At the time the band was just announcing that their merchandise store was reopening. Prior to that the band had posted the sad news that they were breaking up.

Rumors circled around the country music scene on why exactly the band broke up. Most insiders narrowed it down to the lead singer, Evan Felker's, addiction with drugs and alcohol.

Just two weeks prior to their announcement of the split, Felker was seen on stage struggling to get through a well known song "Gin & Smoke & Lies."

Following the breakup, Felker was checked into a rehab facility and claims to now be sober. This news already had Texas Country fans buzzing.

Then on Nov. 29, Turnpike tweeted for the first time in nearly two years. The band simply posted a picture of themselves along with a smile.

Now only time will tell whether or not the band will reunite.
