RTX Sunday Video — Turnpike Troubadours ‘Gin, Smoke, Lies’


Last week I drove through Oklahoma, so of course I gave into the overwhelming urge to blast Turnpike Troubadours “Goodbye Normal Street,” while I drove the Indian Nation Turnpike. It’s as necessary as blaring Pat Green’s “Southbound 35″ when driving from Dallas to Austin.

Turnpike Troubadours are taking the Texas and Red Dirt Scene by storm. Last year they won the Texas Regional Radio Music Award for New Band of the Year, and the guys have been tearing up the Texas charts since. This week the score the RTX Sunday video with “Gin, Smoke, Lies.”

I spoke with RC Edwards of Turnpike Troubadours last April, when Gin, Smoke, Lies” hit radio. I asked him about their unique sound, Edwards told me, “I guess we just sound like ourselves. We didn’t grow up in the Texas Music scene so we don’t know what we’re supposed to sound like, other than just what we play.”

And it’s not a bad thing for them when Randy Rogers sports a Turnpike snap-back in his latest video for “One More Sad Song.” Their future is bright in the scene, here’s your RTX Sunday Video.
