Turnpike Troubadours

We've been touting the Turnpike Troubadours for a while now, so we're glad Skype and Live Nation have jumped on board. The mega-companies' "Ones to Watch" campaign showcases acts that may be on the brink of stardom. Oklahoma's Turnpike Troubadours are an unlikely choice for such a corporate blessing, what with their tales of restless farmers, car-wreck victims, discarded veterans and adulterous drunkards -- all spiked by fiddle, steel and thumping drums. But lead singer Evan Felker's lyrics make these characters come to life in all their glorious flaws.
