Turnpike Troubadours - A Cat In The Rain - Bossier City Records
One of America’s most beloved independent bands, Turnpike Troubadours will release their highly anticipated new album, A Cat In The Rain, August 25 via Bossier City Records/Thirty Tigers. In conjunction with the new music, the band recently spoke with Rolling Stone, who declares, “he [lead singer Evan Felker] is more focused and lyrically crisp than at any point in his life. He’s a poet, but he’s direct.” Produced by Shooter Jennings and recorded at Muscle Shoals’ Fame Recording Studios and Dave’s Room in Los Angeles, A Cat in the Rain marks a long-awaited return for the band following their self-imposed hiatus in 2019. With these ten new songs, Turnpike Troubadours is back with a refreshed perspective on the authentic songwriting and signature foot-stomping sound that first captivated their deeply devoted fanbase.
