FRIDAY – Josh Turner Lives Out His Faith on New Album: ‘Everyone Knows my Heart’
“Everyone knows my heart and what I stand for and what I believe,” Turner says during a new interview with Taste of Country Nights’ Sam Alex. “Having the opportunity to do this record was a big deal and I took it very seriously.”
And so did his family, whose voices and talents are also featured on the album, which is set for release on Friday (Oct. 26.) In fact, the song “The River (Of Happiness)" was actually written by Turner’s wife Jennifer and eldest song Hampton.
“(Jennifer) and all the boys sang and played on this thing,” says Turner of the project, which was the first time the whole family have recorded together. “It’s kind of old hat to them. They get in there and knock it out.”
So could this mean that we may have some future Turners on the country charts some day?
“If it's their passion, I’m going to support it,” says the "Your Man" hitmaker. “But if they are getting into it or thinking about getting into it for the wrong reasons or whatever, I’m going to nip it in the bud really quick.”
Because God knows country music fans are keen on picking up on artists who are genuine and artists that are not.
"That's the great thing about country fans,” concludes Turner. “They know a fake when they hear and see one. My fans have stuck with me all these years and they can see that I am genuine and serious about what I do.”
