TURNPIKE TROUBADOURS

At their best, the gritty, country-leaning roots rock band out of eastern Oklahoma, Turnpike Troubadours, synthesize the populist, political folk of  and the outlaw-styled honky tonk of  with doses of bluegrass, Cajun, and straight-out rock dynamics. The band's grassroots following grew to arena-filling popularity as their plaintive melodies and hard truths of their songs connected on country radio, and 2012's Goodbye Normal Street became their breakthrough release, placing high on both the country and rock charts. The Troubadours had expanded to a sextet by the time they recorded 2017's A Long Way from Your Heart, with the addition of Hank Early on pedal steel, dobro, and keyboards. Once again, the album peaked at number three on the country charts, and the band left theater gigs behind in favor of playing arenas and amphitheaters. They became one of the biggest draws on the Americana circuit, sharing the bill with  and  on the popular Bandwagon package tour.

TYLER HALVERSON

These days, everybody wants to play cowboy. But Tyler Halverson doesn’t have to pretend — the South Dakota singer-songwriter has cowboy running in his blood. He worked his family feedlot and showed cattle all across the country at stocks shows and fairs. But Tyler always had the most fun at the rodeo and found a way to get in on the action, without breaking any bones. Informed by his own experiences, he wrote plainspoken yet clever songs about the action that happens outside of the rodeo arena — like the flirting and drinking that goes on in the adjacent beer tent in fan favorite “Beer Garden Baby” — and started playing them on the circuit for the cowboy and cowgirls competing for the buckles. Tyler’s songs are honest country music, but they’re not throwback or steadfastly traditional. Tyler has christened his sound “Country & Western Amerijuana Music.” A pair of major-label EPs from Atlantic Records, Western Amerijuana (Part 1 and Part 2) were produced by Eddie Spear (Zach Bryan). A collection of 10 songs all co-written by Tyler with collaborators like Jon Decious, Aaron Raitiere, Meg McRee, and the late Keith Gattis, Western Amerijuana announces Tyler as a new voice of the modern American West.
