Josh Turner Releases Album Of Country Classics Today
Josh Turner's spin on a collection of country classics, called Country State of Mind, is released today (Friday, August 21st). He pays homage to several country music icons with the 12-song project, including Randy Travis, John Anderson, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams and Vern Gosdin.
In fact, it was Vern Gosdin's 1984 chart-topping hit that got Josh thinking about recording this album. He tells us: "My manager and I started talking about this summer of last year. We had kind of kicked the idea around the label liked it. The first song that came to mind when we started talking about this record was ‘I Can Tell By The Way You Dance' – the old Vern Gosdin song, and this new version, of mine, I feel like it could be a hit today, just really kind of modernized it."
Josh is joined on Country State of Mind by special guests Randy Travis, Chris Janson, John Anderson, Kris Kristofferson, Runaway June and Maddie & Tae.
