Josh Turner is gearing up to release his long-awaited 6th studio album, and is giving fans a taste of his new project with the release of “Hometown Girl.”
This is the star’s first album since his 2012 release Punching Bag, which peaked at number one on the country charts. Naturally, fans are anxious to get a copy of his new album, but delays have kept the album out of their hands.
According to Turner, the new album has been in the works since January of 2013 and is almost complete, but business issues have held up the release of the album. Luckily, the country crooner is pushing through these issues and will release “Hometown Girl” to country radio on May 31. You can get a preview of this sweet and wholesome track below.
This single is full of everything Josh Turner fans love about the singer, even though it is a bit different from his past work. It features lyrics about a hometown girl, has a comforting beat and highlights the singer’s unique voice.
Mark Beeson co-wrote the song with Daniel Tashian, and Turner fell in love with it the moment he heard it. According to Rolling Stone Country, the singer instantly knew the song would be a hit and couldn’t wait to record it.
With all the problems surrounding the release of his album, Josh Turner has taken a step back to decide how he fit into the world of modern country. His goal is to continue touring and recording country music while he evolves as a country singer.
While the release date is not yet set for the album, you can catch Turner live in concert across the country through the summer. You can find a full list of tour dates at his official website.
