“Turnpike Troubadours” will open for Stoney LaRue Friday, June 14, at the 69th annual Watermelon Jubilee.

The overwhelming success that “Turnpike Troubadours” has had says a lot about the quintet’s authenticity and fire.

Over the course of the past five years, frontman Evan Felker, bassist RC Edwards, fiddle player Kyle Nix, guitarist Ryan Engleman, and drummer Gabe Pearson have honed the rowdy, quick-witted sound that’s brought folks of all stripes together.

The band -- which took its name from the Indian Nation Turnpike that connected so many of the smaller towns where they cut their teeth -- gradually evolved from offering acoustic explorations of tunes by Townes Van Zandt and Jerry Jeff Walker to kicking out three or four sets a night of full-throttle roadhouse country, tinged with the punk-rock attitude that was in the air during the members’ teen years.

The raw-boned energy of their 2007 debut, “Bossier City,” cut on a shoestring budget and aimed squarely at getting boots on the dance floor, earned raves from many corners, including “No Depression,” which dubbed it “a testament to the small towns in which they were raised ... with stories of longing, humor, tragedy, and general life in rural America.”
