With Special Guests Blackberry Smoke and Morgan Wade
Oklahoma City’s Paycom Center continues its 20th Anniversary celebration with the announcement of Tahlequah, Oklahoma’s own Turnpike Troubadours performing live on Saturday, November 12, 2022. Special guests Blackberry Smoke and Morgan Wade will open the show, proudly presented by DCF Concerts and Mammoth. It will be the band’s first headlining arena date in their home state.
Turnpike Troubadours formed in 2005, assembling a lineup that eventually included frontman Evan Felker, lead guitarist Ryan Engleman, fiddle player Kyle Nix, bassist R.C. Edwards, drummer Gabe Pearson, and steel guitar and accordion player Hank Early. Their debut album, Bossier City, was released in 2007 and the first of five studio albums the group would release. Their self-titled 2015 album peaked at number 17 on the Billboard 200 and inside the Top 5 of U.S. Country, Folk, Rock and Indie charts. 2017’s A Long Way from Your Heart would peak at number 3 on the Billboard Top Country chart.
In 2019, the band announced their indefinite hiatus. Two years later, in November 2021, the band teased their return and shortly after started announcing new shows starting in 2022, including two sold out dates at Red Rocks and an appearance at Bonnaroo.
