Combining respect for country music's traditions with a contemporary edge has made Josh Turner one of the industry's most successful artists. On March 10, the multi-Platinum-selling singer releases his highly-awaited, sixth studio album, Deep South. The album features 11 tracks including his melodic reverie in "Lay Low" and his currently climbing Top 20 hit, "Hometown Girl."
"I'm really proud of this album," says Turner. "It was really important for me to expand creatively and explore in new ways for this record. The way I pick songs is different now. There are so many things in my life and career that have matured me as an artist."
Turner follows that thought with the reminder, "I've had another child since my last project!"
For Turner, the title Deep South represents hardworking people who find joy in the simple things in life; heritage, church, community, high school sports, being outdoors. "It is a culture."
