Turnpike Troubadours (from the album A Cat in the Rain available on Bossier City Records/Thirty Tigers) (by Danny McCloskey)
Opening their recent release under the rays (and riffs) of “Mean Old Sun”, Turnpike Troubadours roll out A Cat in the Rain. The beat begins the song on a slow, determined stride to enter the recording, the other album songs following the easy rhythms with “The Rut” and “Three More Days”, balancing the quiet on the solid groove coursing underneath the A Cat in the Rain title track and “East Side Love Song (Bottoms Up)”. Turnpike Troubadours are founding members in the Red Dirt music scene, keeping their collective dues up-to-date with the fine jukebox and honky tonk dance floor melodies of A Cat in the Rain, and the real-life country livin’ stories of TT lead singer and frontman, Evan Felker.
Shooter Jennings produced A Cat in the Rain in Muscle Shoals, Alabama at the infamous Fame Recordings Studios and Los Angeles, CA in Dave’s Room. The songs come in as old friends on first listen when “Chipping Mill” relates the tale of love gone wrong as Turnpike Troubadours strip down to harmonica and acoustic guitar strums for “Wont You Give Me One More Chance”, the instrumentation layering much like the heartfelt words requesting a break. A Cat in the Rain calls out to “Lucille” in the glow of neon and lists a long line of love in “Brought Me” while Turnpike Troubadours borrow a tune from Brewer and Shipley with their cover of “Black Sky”.
