Josh Turner’s new Country State Of Mind record is finally here and without a shadow of a doubt, it was well worth the wait.
The new album features covers from Josh’s country music heroes: Randy Travis, John Anderson, Johnny Cash, Vern Gosdin and Hank Williams.
“I’ve always said that any song you hear coming from my voice, you’re going to hear bits and pieces of those five guys… They taught me how to be Josh Turner.”
With covers of the aforementioned heroes, along with covers Alan Jackson, George Strait, Hank Jr., George Jones and more, the record also features a newly recorded duet of “Forever And Ever Amen,” featuring country icon Randy Travis. This new performance was Randy’s first trip into the vocal booth since his stroke in 2013.
“Randy has always been my hero. He was the reason I wanted to become a country singer… He’s an inspiring figure, not just to me but to a lot of people, so to have him sing on this record is pretty special.”
If you’re looking for a rock solid country album, look no further.
