RTX New Music Beat Down: The Great Divide vs. Turnpike Troubadours [POLL]

Facebook

In this week’s RTX New Music Beat Down we see one of Red Dirt’s most legendary bands, The Great Divide go up against one if it’s brightest young stars, Turnpike Troubadours. Check out both Okie band’s new singles and vote for your favorite.

First up Turnpike Troubadours. These guys have been carving themselves a nice lil’ niche in the Texas/Red Dirt scene for over five years now. Three albums in, they seem to be in full stride. Their latest “Goodbye Normal Street” has already produced two hit singles: “Gin, Smoke, Lies” and “Good Lord Lorrie,” and is one of my personal favorite of the past year. The third release is “Wrecked” and is challenger number one this week, check it out.

In this corner, a band that inspired their fair share of young impressionable Okie singer/songwriters. The Great Divide front man Mike McClure has literally shaped the sound of music in this scene, producing albums for Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jason Boland, Stoney LaRue, Johnny Cooper and yes, even Turnpike Troubadours. After their highly anticipated reunion show last year in Stillwater, The Great Divide are out touring lightly — with McClure splitting time between them, his own band and producing. Here is “Without You.”
