Turner readies new single

Friday, March 28, 2014 – Following her debut Top 40 single "Take the Keys," Leah Turner will release her next single, "Pull Me Back," to country radio in late April, before hitting the road with Brad Paisley in May.

The song was penned by Turner, Jon Nite and Jimmy Robbins,.

"'Pull Me Back' is a song about a personal experience I went through not that long ago," said the Californian. "We have all been there, where the far corner of the bed seems like a better place to hug than the one laying next to you. Sometimes pride can get the best of you in a relationship. You push away someone you care about to protect yourself from being hurt, when what you really want to say is 'I want you to be strong enough to break down my walls and pull me back.'"

"Being truly vulnerable in a relationship requires a certain bravery and strength. Pushing away may seem like the smartest and easiest thing to do, but it's the moment you're pulled back that the healing starts."

Singed to Columbia Nashville in July 2013, Turner's first single was "Take the Keys," written with Cary Barlowe and Jesse Frasure.

With most artists, it's relatively easy to guess which song a performer will choose to close a show. But Lambert has so many winners to pick from, many... »»»
Concert Review: DBT rocks on – Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»
