Country singer Josh Turner releases his sophomore CD Your Man today, January 24th, 2006. The CD may be of interest to readers of Bluegrass Today due to the inclusion of a duet with Dr. Ralph Stanley on the gospel number Me And God. Other songs on the 11-song CD also contains touches of bluegrass influence, including some banjo on the song Would You Go With Me. Make no mistake, this is a country album, with some bluegrass sounds added to the mix.
I found this quote from Josh in the Charlotte Observer | Turner faces down sophomore blues:
“I grew up on bluegrass, gospel and a rootsy-Americana style of country. It’s honest and real,” says Turner, who was raised near Florence, S.C., but recently bought his first home in the Nashville area. “The phrase that really describes my kind of music is South Carolina Low Country.”
