Long Black Train by Josh Turner
He may look like a teenager, but 26-year-old Josh has a timeless voice, a rich country baritone as deep as the hollows in his native South Carolina. It was well introduced with his debut album's title cut – an old-fashioned, gospel-preaching train song that has amazingly ridden its classic Johnny Cash boom-chicka-boom sound right past the slick, popped-out competition on country radio.
The other 10 tracks on this overly perfect and proper CD are sometimes overwhelmed by the power of Josh's voice, but scattered moments ("I Had One One Time," "Jacksonville") suggest that he might be able to ride his Train to glory.
