Today Josh Turner’s Punching Bag comes out! This is Turner’s 5th studio album and his latest single, Time is Love is on the charts already.
Josh Turner wrote or co-wrote 8 of the 11 songs on the album. The cool thing about that is that he built a cabin on his property specifically to go to to write songs and he in fact wrote those from this album there. This is what he had to say about that:
“I spent two years building my writer’s cottage. Once it was finished I was immediately in there writing songs. In total, I’ve written 27 songs in there and eight of those ended up on the record,” says Josh. “My hero and friend, John Anderson, was sitting across the table from me one day when we were writing and said, ‘What will really be a great day is when the songs you write here end up paying for this place!’”
Pretty cool huh? So anyway, these are the songs that captured my attention immediately: Find Me a Baby, Pallbearer, and I Was There.
What are you listening to these days?
