Josh Turner CD delayed until 2010

Friday, October 2, 2009 – Josh Turner's next CD was delayed three months, it was learned Friday afternoon. "Haywire" was due out Nov. 10, but a press release about a video for his new single said the new date was Feb. 9, 2010.

"Universal Music Group strives to put albums out at the most optimal time for the artists and Nov. 10 was not optimal, so it is now confirmed to be released on Feb. 9," MCA Nashville Regina Stuve said via email.

Turner recently shot the video for his single Why Don't We Just Dance with award-winning directors Robert Deaton and George Flanigen. The video takes the viewer on a trip through time. "We actually start in the 1950s and work our way through to the present," said Turner. "I thought it was a great concept because it shows that the song has a timeless message. Every decade has had its hard times, and sometimes it's good for people to step back and say, 'Why Don't We Just Dance?' Let's forget about the bad news and just focus on each other." Turner's favorite decade that is featured in the video is the '80's. "I laughed out loud when I saw the dancers', (Ciaran McCarthy and Ashley Anderson who are married in real life), wardrobe for the 80's scene. It brought back a lot of memories."

The music video will world premiere on GAC's Monday Music Mania on Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. Eastern. The song is the debut single from "Haywire." The song currently holds the number 34 position on R&R/Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck charts.

CD reviews for Josh Turner

Live Across America CD review - Live Across America
Josh Turner's relationship with Cracker Barrel stretches far beyond a love of chicken & dumplings and sweet tea. The country store/restaurant sponsored his 2012 tour and previously has released a live concert recorded at the Ryman Auditorium. Turner's latest release for Cracker Barrel features songs from his latest tour, recorded at 12 different stops along the way. While live releases seldom compare well to studio albums, Turner has a crack band that can match the abilities of the »»»
Punching Bag CD review - Punching Bag
Josh's Turner's fifth album for MCA Nashville, "Punching Bag" can be interpreted quite literally. It starts off with a hokey Vince McMahon ring introduction, citing Turner's height, weight and a moniker, "The Tornado of Testosterone." It is fitting for one of music's most distinct baritones. He spent two years building a writer's cottage for inspiration. Ironically, the Top 15 single Time Is Love is 1 of the 12 tracks that he did not have a hand in writing. »»»
Haywire CD review - Haywire
There are two versions of Josh Turner's fourth CD - standard and deluxe. The deluxe has the same 11 tracks as the standard, plus (among other goodies) live versions of previously released songs Long Black Train and Your Man . But don't spend more money than you have to; if it's redundancy you're looking for, there's plenty to be had on the standard version. Turner has a compelling baritone, but the songs on here feel like they followed the standard 2010 country CD checklist. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Hard Working Americans more than live up to moniker – Hard Working Americans is a generic enough sounding term, conveying that you're part of the lunch bucket crowd. Part of a faceless pack instead of an individual. In reality, it's something of a misnomer for the sextet of the same name heretofore considered a side project. That's because they or in most cases, their other... »»»
Concert Review: Wolf rolls on with ease – Peter Wolf starts off his first disc in six years, "A Cure for Loneliness," with "Rolling On." Great title for a song, and as he would prove in concert, he lived up to those words. The song starts "You can lay down and die / You can lay up and count the tears you've cried / But baby, that's not me / There's a... »»»

Couchville Sessions CD review - Couchville Sessions
For those who remain unaware of Darrell Scott, "The Couchville Sessions" is an ideal starting place. Long one of "rock, folk, country (and) blues" (to misquote the lead track, "Down to the River") most esteemed sidemen (Robert Plant's Band of Joy, Guy Clark, Steve Earle), collaborators (Tim O'Brien) and songwriters ("Long Time Gone," "You'll Never Leave Harlan Alive"), Scott has been making outstanding Americana albums... »»»
Playing With Fire CD review - Playing With Fire
If you happened to hear Jennifer Nettles' debut solo record, "That Girl," you may have come away thinking that she was a frustrated torch singer. That effort was chock full of emotive ballads, which, while heartfelt, sure was missing a certain element of F-U-N. Problem solved. From the opening sustain of gospel organ, Nettles storms out of the gate in a sensational tour-de-force.  »»»

Credit the new wave of populist nu-folk/newgrass talent and troubadours for having made a profound impression on today's Americana legions.

Detour CD review - Detour
There is an element of Pee-Wee's Playhouse running through Cyndi Lauper's country album, "Detour." Maybe it's just the way she speaks during certain song segments, with that girly Jersey girl-like voice of hers, which causes the listener to expect Cowboy Carl to suddenly show up. It's also due to Lauper's love of musical kitsch.  »»»
