Biography

HAYWIRE

Whether it's with his deep, soulful voice, his South Carolina accent or his philosophy on life, Josh Turner has never been one to hurry. But a memorable country song recently convinced him to pick up his pace.

The singer-songwriter was months away from scheduled recording sessions when he first heard "Why Don't We Just Dance," which became the debut single ... Read more in Amazon's Josh Turner Store

Editorial Reviews

As a family man, a philanthropist, a devoted Christian, and a passionate sports fan, you might say Josh Turner s commitments run as deep as his voice.

Of course, he s also a double-platinum-selling singer, songwriter and disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry.

All of those layers construct Josh s new album, Punching Bag. His fifth for MCA Nashville, the record is a knockout collection of bluegrass-influenced barnburners, lonesome laments, and the slow and steady love ballads on which Josh s trademark baritone excels.

The follow-up to 2010 s Haywire, which yielded the No. 1 hits Why Don t We Just Dance and All Over Me, Punching Bag represents Josh in fighting shape. Throughout all 11 songs, he bobs and weaves like a champ, exhibiting new range in both his voice and his songwriting. Josh penned eight of the record s eleven tracks, including the rollicking title song that, he says, set the tone for the entire project.

This is country singer-songwriter Josh Turner's 5th studio album titled 'Puching Bag'. The CD (12 tracks) is a collection of great country music by Josh Turner about love as well as the gospelly "Pallbearer" & " For The Love Of God", showing his Christian roots/side. His vocal range is infectious as ever on this CD. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Deeper Than My Love", "Good Problem", "Whatcha Reckon" & my personal favourite "I Was There" (slow-tempo track with wonderful melody). His critically acclaimed 2010 CD release 'Haywire' had two #1 singles, hopefully he may do the same from this CD 'Punching Bag'. Great tracks include "Punching Bag" (title track following the annouchment by the legendary Michael Buffer in track one), "Time Is Love", "Cold Shoulder" (incredible baritone vocal range vocals) & "Find My Baby". Okay tracks are "Pallbearer" (gospelly track), "For The Love Of God" & "Left Hand Man".

On overall, Josh Turner doesn't disappoint in this 5th studio album. His vocal range is incredible, a highly recommended CD listening.

Let me just say that this is a wonderful CD. It is not perfect, but is an excellent example of easy listening, classic country music. After a run-through the seasoned country fan will see the differences in how Josh Turner does not follow strictly some of the more pop-oriented country that is beginning to take over the CMAs.

Josh stays true to his roots and this selection of songs puts you in your imaginary seat at the Grand ol' Opry. Simple, clean, not much overproduction, just a good solid country album with quality singing throughout from the Josh T. we have come to expect.

My only qualms with the CD is that it probably overemphasizes the one on one relationship between man and woman a bit too much and Josh doesn't deliver his "long black train" baritone with enough regularity. Would prefer an album with a larger variety of subject material.

Nevertheless, the songs are quite good and very country--in a good way! Well worth the purchase and fully deserving of 5 stars. A great introduction into the country genre for new fans, or a mainstay for those already fans.

A strong album that just keeps getting stronger as it goes. Josh's voice sounds better than ever, and he's got a great collection of songs with his trademark traditional sound. I especially love "Cold Shoulder" and "Pallbearer," and most of all the delightful "Find Me a Baby"!

Josh Turner has once again delivered a great album. I love his voice and his range is showcased in this album. His personal interests and passions are clearly evident in the variety of songs. I love country music, but do not care for the popular and too common "drinking songs". I'm glad that Josh always delivers family-friendly albums with a couple of Christian songs.

Josh Turner is most definitely MY favorite country artist (aside from Rascal Flatts, but still...) and this is by far his BEST ALBUM YET!!! The title track of 'Punching Bag' and 'Time is Love' are obviously the most popular and catchy, by others such as 'Find me a Baby', 'For the Love of God', and 'Pallbearer' are very well written and sound amazing, especially with Josh's epic voice! I also love how Josh continuously express his relationship with God in so many of his songs. For an example in this album, 'For the Love of God' explains why Turner doesn't go through life trying to please man, but rather to grow closer to God. I also like how he writes his more romantic songs without going 'too far' if you know what I mean... The pride of Hannah, South Carolina has really outdone himself in this awesome new album.
