Josh Turner

Josh Turner is a living proof of the old country music sound of this generation. Indeed, he is the new era of honky-tonk. His style and his choice of music can be regarded to the panache of Hank Williams, Waylon Jennings, Little Jimmy Dickens and many more. His temperament differs him from other country artists. With his voice, the music, sound, and the melodies of yesterday can be heard once more.

“Firecracker” is one of the best songs to remember the honky-tonk in the past. Through the song, the legends seemed to be alive again. Lend your ears as we backtrack the music before in the persona of the old soul Josh Turner.
