Sorry, I can’t turn you onto any new music from the Turnpike Troubadours at this turn, but I can offer you the next best thing. Turnpike bass player, songwriter, and beating heart RC “Rooster” Edwards has been working a side hustle for some years now called RC and the Ambers.
If you’re looking for somewhere to turn to fill your Turnpike Troubadours fix amid the Red Dirt band’s continued indefinite hiatus, a new option is getting ready to present itself. Long-time Turnpike side project RC and the Ambers has just finished up a studio album.
The Turnpike Troubadours are not done yet. This was the news coming out of Mile 0 Fest last weekend in Key West, Florida, where the Oklahoma-based Red Dirt country band was scheduled to play, but cancelled the appearance last minute along with multiple other shows.
