Josh Turner has always been a country artist who puts so much emotion into his songs. Yes, he might be known as the sexy voice behind the hit “Your Man,” but he is so much more than that. He has released gospel albums and has countless gospel music in his discography.
This time, the singer decided to open up about being a father and what he learned from the experience.
Behind Josh Turner’s “I’ll be There”
In an interview, the singer opened up about having difficulty in singing the song. The song hits close to home for the singer and he is attached to it. He explained:
“It makes me think about myself as a daddy, and when I’m up on stage that’s the furthest thing from my mind because I try to separate the two. When I’m up on stage, I’m thinking more about my fans and about myself as a singer and an artist. When I’m at home being a daddy, the last thing I’m thinking about is being an artist. It is two things that I never really put together.”
The songwriter’s inspiration was from his personal experience as a father. Turner praised the song since he was able to relate to it and feel the emotions through the lyrics.
