Turnpike might be making new music soon, according to lead singer Evan Felker, who says he is sober.

I hope he is sober. I also hope they make some new music.

Good deal. Great to see him get well. From what I know he got clean and has spent the past 6 months ir so working as a hand on an actual working ranch just to get away from it all. He has put out a song or two and stayed away from the spotlight. I like that the article covered it well. One of my all time favorite bands. Their lyrics go well beyond tge simply rhyming of higher, fire, desire BS. Their lyrics have some substance to them plus they are great musicians.

This IS good news. Hope Evan is clean. They are a talented group and put on a great show. Gabe the drummer is a Texas kid and built a house just south of Kingston, OK right as all the mess with Felker went down in '18.

Great article right up until the mention of Garth Brooks. Too bad he didn't stick with his roots. Nashville got him by the nads early and he couldn't resist.

Great artist did their best work with a little inspiration induced by euphoria. Being sober doesn't mean good music. bolt

Well said. One of my favorite bands, too. He is a great songwriter.

Good to hear he is doing well. Hopefully Turnpike makes a comeback. I agree with Mark, their lyric are deeper than most and they tell a story with their songs.

"Sunlight shines in fine white lines on weathered stores with open signs" and "her tan legs checkered from a folding chair". That's creative genius and authentic. Love their music, and hope they make it back. Wish them the best!

And hey Duck Hunter, he often mentions the quintessential duck hunting gun - A Belgium Browning A-5! Again, authentic.
