Red Dirt Country Music Strikes Again!
“Red Dirt” music refers to the specific style of country music from Oklahoma and refers to the color of the soil there. The Turnpike Troubadours are one of the best known bands of that genre touring today, and they sold out Brighton Music Hall recently.
Drive On Down And See The Turnpike Troubadours
A friend suggested I should see The Turnpike Troubadours at The Wilbur Theatre last week because they do not travel much outside Oklahoma and Texas – or did not until this tour. I did not know the band prior to the show, but we have some similar taste in music so I took her advice and got a ticket.
All this was before I knew that The Black Lillies, one of my favorite up-and-coming bands, were supporting them on at least part of the tour!
