Austin City Limits is excited to announce their final taping of Season 43 as they present the Turnpike Troubadours...

The Turnpike Troubadours will take the ACL stage on December 5 for their debut taping that will also be streamed live around the world.

Called “the greatest country music band in the world right now” by Saving Country Music, the Turnpike Troubadours make their ACL debut in support of their fourth album 'A Long Way From Your Heart' which was produced by Grammy winner Ryan Hewitt.

Lead singer and chief songwriter Evan Felker said... 'I love what we as a band have turned into and how we treat songs. That’s something we’ve grown into––adding some sort of oddly theatrical element to the musicianship to help the story along, to sum up where or who the character is to give him a little bit of landscape. It’s not just an acoustic guitar and a guy telling you what somebody’s doing.'

Felker founded his band of red dirt country rockers in 2005. Since then, the Troubadours have delivered punch after punch of smart rock & roll that sells out all over the country.

Be sure to check them out on Austin City Limits.
