CHEERS

TOP SHELF

Josh Turner invites fans to join him in scaling what the charismatic performer likes to call his “Mount Rushmore of Country Music” on his outstanding new studio album COUNTRY STATE OF MIND, scheduled for release August 21st on MCA Nashville. The 12-song collection finds Turner in an enlightened “country state of mind” as he pays homage to a cross-section of classic country music icons, including five legends who have long held a firm place in his musical journey: Randy TravisJohn AndersonJohnny CashVern Gosdin, and Hank Williams. The new rendition of the Randy Travis classicForever and Ever, Amen marks Travis’ first recording session since an incapacitating 2013 stroke. Turner teams up with John Anderson to reprise Anderson’s 1993 hit “I’ve Got It Made.” Country Music Hall of Famer Kris Kristofferson joined Turner to record a new version of his 1973 chart-topper “Why Me”.  Other standout tracks include the title track, originally a 1986 hit for Hank Williams Jr., which becomes a duet with fellow Grand Ole Opry member Chris Janson; the members of Runaway June take George Jones’ part on “You Don’t Seem to Miss Me,” and Maddie & Tae sing with Turner on “Desperately,” a 2004 single for George Strait and the album’s newest song.
