Picks and Pans Review: Josh Turner
The 28-year-old Hannah, S.C., native is wooing fans with his deep voice and country sounds on his second CD, Your Man, featuring the hit title track.
ON HIS SOUND I've coined this phrase, "South Carolina Low Country," that describes my music. There's a region of my home state called the Low Country. Obviously I have a low voice and I sing country music. It has that down-home, backwoods, rural feel.
ON WORKING WITH HIS WIFE Jennifer travels with me on the road, playing piano and singing background vocals. I always have somebody to lean on and talk to about the business.
ON MEETING JOHNNY CASH I was a student at Belmont University and had been reading his autobiography. I thought, "If he dies and I don't get to meet him, I will be so disappointed." I took it upon myself to find out where he lived and go there. When I got there, the gate was open. I went up to the door and knocked. The door swings open wide, and there stands Johnny Cash. I took a step back and said, "My name is Josh Turner." I told him my heart was about to beat out of my chest, and he laughed and said, "We're all human."
