Your Man by Josh Turner

It's a nice problem to have: Josh's voice is so striking that it’s difficult to find songs that live up to it.

A baritone carved of solid granite, it’s reminiscent of no less a luminary than Johnny Cash—whose boom-chicka-boom style Josh echoed with his debut hit, 2003’s “Long Black Train.” That gospel-drenched number provoked a passionate response that propelled the album of the same name to platinum.

The first hit from Josh’s sophomore effort conjures the spirits of a couple of other deep-voiced icons, Conway Twitty and Barry White. A precisely pitched come-on, “Your Man” demonstrates that, whether selling spirituality or sensuality, Josh is a strong persuader.

The other standout of Your Man is another nod to Josh’s musical heroes: “Loretta Lynn’s Lincoln” is an irresistible joyride through country history.

But Josh spends most of Your Man navigating one of country’s finest voices under 30 through pleasant material that’s rarely worthy of the singer.
