Who Did it Better: Chris Stapleton turns Josh Turner’s ‘Your Man’ Soulful


Someone said in the comment section that if ever we hear God’s voice, it’ll probably be Chris Stapleton’s and we could not agree more. While Chris Stapleton found his identity in your classic road country and outlaw timbre, Stapleton is undeniably a songwriting God and his skills are certainly and unquestionably Godly. In 2006, Josh Turner recorded a song ‘Your Man’ and it is no secret that Chris Stapleton was the songsmith behind this number one hit.

Your Man, Josh Turner, Chris Stapleton

Josh Turner has been given a natural Southern and cowboy voice that many people would kill to have. It’s almost an effortless feat for Turner to sway everyone’s feet and those include men as well and it is easy for him to make them fall in love with his singing style.

That’s why it’s no longer a surprise that ‘Your Man’ peaked at number one after Stapleton trusted that he could bring forth his song to the top of Billboard charts. Indeed, it became true and gave Turner his first number one in his career. Not only that it was a chart-topping hit, it was also certified Gold in June 2006.

It cannot be denied that Josh Turner did a good job and to add the icing on the cake, Chris Stapleton also bagged a writing award along with Chris DuBois for the said song.

Many would have argued that Chris Stapleton should have just recorded the song for himself rather than giving it to Turner. We all have a different opinion about it but we will leave the judging for you. After all, Turner and Stapleton’s comparison is like comparing two gems of different value.

Watch their performances below:



Your Man Lyrics

Baby lock the door and turn the lights down low
Put some music on that’s soft and slow
Baby we ain’t got no place to go
I hope you understand

I’ve been thinking ’bout this all day long
Never felt a feeling quite this strong
I can’t believe how much it turns me on
Just to be your man

There’s no hurry
Don’t you worry
We can take our time
Come a little closer
Let’s go over
What I had in mind

Baby lock the door and turn the lights down low
Put some music on that’s soft and slow
Baby we ain’t got no place to go
I hope you understand
