For the last decade-plus, Josh Turner has been proving that traditional, wholesome country music still has a place in the world. He’s been a huge success with some great songs. Many of his hits are still played today, years after their original run on the charts. That shows that Josh knows what he’s doing when it comes to country music.
It’s been an interesting couple of years for Josh. There have been murmurs that things have slowed with his music and how his label has taken it and marketed it. There can be good reasons for all that, but it seems like both parties are back on track with a new song and it’s a good one.
And that’s good for country fans.
Hometown Girl – Josh Turner
This song has Josh Turner’s fingerprints all over it. The song is about the values of small town life and especially the people that come from small towns. In this case the center of the story is a girl that has all the great values that come with living in a small town.
The guy in the song is singing about his admiration for all those hometown girls all over the world. He sees the values they have and the love they share and he knows that it’s what he wants for his life.
The song is catchy. It has Josh’s traditional-sounding vocals. There are a few aspects of the song that I think will play well on country radio and I think this one should be a hit.
