One week after abruptly canceling their Memorial Day weekend shows, the Turnpike Troubadurs announced via Instagram that they are taking an “indefinite hiatus” and canceling all upcoming tour dates. The group explained that the break is an “opportunity to heal” and come back stronger.
The Oklahoma-based band, which consists of Evan Felker, Kyle Nix, Ryan Engleman, RC Edwards, Hank Early and Gabriel Pearson, has canceled a number of shows over the last year, alluding to the fact that one of their band members has struggled with personal problems. There has been widespread speculation that singer and frontman Evan Felker is struggling with addiction; however neither the band nor Felker has commented on the rumors.
