JOSH TURNER VIDEO DERAILED?

Operation Lifesaver, the American Public Transportation Association, the Association of American Railroads and the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers have urged new artist Josh Turner and the video networks CMT and GAC to stop playing Josh's video for Long Black Train. A spokesperson for Operation Lifesaver says, "While Turner's song speaks of redemption, we are deeply concerned that the video for 'Long Black Train' showing vulnerable people on the tracks -- such as an alcoholic, a pregnant teen, and a gambler -- may unwittingly serve as an invitation to suicide on the rail."
