Your Man (2006)
|Artist: Josh Turner|
|Josh Turner has come a long way from his Grand Ole Opry when he, a then unknown, received two standing ovations. Since that day in 2003, he released his first single, was nominated for Best New Artist at the ACM's and nominated for the CMA's Horizon Award for the best newcomer, toured with Brooke & Dunn and saw his debut album Long Black Train reach Platinum status. It was exactly what the Hannah, South Carolina, native hoped for, but didn't expect.
For Josh's 2nd album Your Man Josh again teamed up with producer Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley) and put together an album that shows his growth and maturity as an artist but also reflects the changes he has experienced as a person. The first single from the new album "Your Man" continues to showcase Josh's signature deep vocal and mirrors the true love Josh found with his wife that he married shortly after the release of his debut album.

|Josh Turner made a splash on the country music scene in 2003 with his hardline traditionalist debut LONG BLACK TRAIN, and reappeared in 2006 with YOUR MAN. Turner's sophomore release is as decidedly old-school as his first, reaching back to the mournful ballads and honky tonk leanings of Hank Williams Sr. and overtly referencing the likes of Loretta Lynn and Johnny Cash. Genre legends Ralph Stanley and John Anderson are on board to lend the young Turner some historical credibility. The real draw of the album, however, is Turner's beautifully rich baritone voice, which is represented to fine effect on these 11 tracks. While not exactly a neo-traditionalist masterpiece, YOUR MAN offers a refreshing antidote to the country-pop glutting the market in the 2000s.|
