The Turnpike Troubadours’ Show True Country in Video for ‘Down Here’

The Turnpike Troubadours just released a music video for their song, “Down Here”. Making subtle waves for years, this is the first single for the group, comprised of Evan Felker (frontman), R.C. Edwards, Kyle Nix, Ryan Engelman and Gabe Pearson, off their new self-titled album.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Felker spoke about how the band represents real country music: “Any time some rock & roller gets washed up in whatever band they’re in, they switch to country music and try to play our game. But it’s not country music. It’s just bad pop. I grew up in a town of 400 people. I worked in a paper mill. My dad’s a cowboy. I’m from the country, and you just can’t fool me with that pop stuff. . . I’m happy to be a country band.”

The music video for “Down Here”, which shows rodeo cowboys at work and at play, pairs well with the infectious song.
