EDITORS’ NOTES

With its mentions of our crazy world and of course Josh Turner’s low rumbling bass voice, “Why Don’t We Just Dance” is sure to please anyone who smiled after first hearing Billy Currington’s “People Are Crazy.” Not to mention that Turner’s first hit off his fourth album Haywire is a line-dance hit recalling the ‘90s New Traditional craze. After all the comparisons to guttural countrypolitan crooner Don Williams, Turner takes on a gorgeous cover of “I Wouldn’t Be a Man,” which Williams had a hit with in 1987. The chorus here finds Turner singing outside his comfort zone by stepping up on some high notes before returning to his low tonal style. For the uplifting midtempo country rocker “As Fast As I Could,” he reunites with Jeremy Spillman who co-wrote Turner’s top 10 hit “Another Try” from 2007’s Everything Is Fine. This time around they tone down the sentiment and amp up the twang with a grip of traditional instruments. With Haywire, Fans of Turner won’t be surprised, but they won’t be let down either. While he doesn’t deviate from his past formula, the quality of these tunes is better, song for song.

Keeps getting better and better!

Josh Turner is such a breath of fresh air in the world of music these days. His voice is unmistakable in the flood of overprocessed and electronically enhanced "artists" of today. The songs he chooses to sing are uplifting and fun, but he throws in a ballad or two and just makes your heart melt. He had me at "Why Don't You Just Dance" but when I previewed "The Answer", I clicked to buy the album before I even listened to the rest of it. Thank you, Josh, for rekindling our passion for music and talent and giving us a reason to keep buying your albums!

Another amazing album from Josh Turner! Songs like "as fast as I could" "why dont we just dance" and "I wouldnt be a man" are the reasons why I continually buy his albums. This is not a dissapointment!
