On Aug. 27, Josh Turner released his new album for Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores, Josh Turner—Live Across America, which puts a different twist on the standard "live" album.
The performances were recorded at 12 different venues across the country during the early portion of Josh's 2012 tour. "I was interested to see how it would work out because every night you have a different crowd and a different experience," Josh recently told CountryWeekly.com.
Speaking of concert crowds, Josh notes that he has learned not to let the audience distract him.
"The ones that used to bug me the most were the crowds where a whole group was constantly talking," he says. "I was like, 'They seem to be having a good time without me.' You wondered why they were there."
Josh also reveals that quiet crowds used to "bug" him as well. "It's not that they aren't into it, they just want to take in every word," he explains. "I have come to learn that. A lot of times, they're conserving their energy for the songs that are more energetic. For this album," Josh adds, "the crowds were really good. They were excited the whole time."
Josh Turner—Live Across America features hits such as “Long Black Train,” “Your Man” and others. It is available exclusively at all Cracker Barrel locations and crackerbarrel.com .
