Guess what I’m listening to? Ok, I’ll tell you. It’s Josh Turner’s new CD, “Haywire,” scheduled to release on Tuesday, Feb. 9i. Josh Turner is set to perform on The Late Show With David Letterman this Monday, February 8.
Josh is also GAC’s Artist of the Month, so be sure to check their web site to keep up with news and videos, including an interview with Josh.
This Deluxe Edition includes 15 songs – I would have purchased it if it only had one … my favorite Josh Turner song is the first one on the CD, “Why Don’t We Just Dance.”
But in addition to that one, Josh Turner fans will be very happy to find, “Long Black Train,” recorded live! “Your Man” was also recorded Live. I heard a local deejay say once that he thought Josh was a great guy, but he really didn’t care much for his music. To that deejay, I can only say, “listen again”.
I think “Why Don’t We Just Dance” was the right song to put in the lead off position on this CD. That song made it into the Top 10, and I think everyone who has ever heard it loves it. Josh follows that one with “I Wouldn’t Be A Man,” and that one with “Haywire,” and that one with “Your Smile,” and it doesn’t take long to realize that this CD is going to make a great Valentine’s Day gift for anyone who wants to sit by a fireplace, cuddle with their Valentine and listen to some really good music.
You aren’t going to hear any songs about , cheating, drinking, tractors, dying dogs, someone packing their bag to leave, losing your money, or anything else misguided people usually try to tell you is in very country song. You’re going to get good country music, sung by what I believe is one of the best male voices in country music today.
Everyone knows Josh for his “Love Black Train”. I don’t think any of the songs on this CD have the hit potential of that single. But, I still think it’s a really good album. And one I’m really glad I have in my CD collection.
Why Don’t We Just Dance; I Wouldn’t Be a Man, Haywire, Your Smile, Lovin’ You On My Mind, As Fast As I Could, I’ll Be There, All Over Me, Eye Candy, Friday Paycheck, The Answer, (and on the Deluxe Edition) This Kind of Love, Let’s Find A Church, Long Black Train and Your Man.
Great music on Josh’s fourth CD set to release on MCA Nashville on Tuesday, Feb. 9. Check his tour schedule, too – you aren’t going to want to miss his show when he gets somewhere near you!
Just three days until this CD is at your local store. So get ready to run out and grab your copy.
That’s all for me this morning. I’ll talk to you guys soon. Write when you get a minute!
