Without a doubt, Josh Turner is our new cup of tea. Perhaps, due to his deep-toned voice that brings back the roots of country music. He is a breath of fresh air. Nevertheless, he is an old soul with his deep-toned voice. Also, Josh Turner is the new era of honky-tonk. With this, let’s listen to one of his singles “What It Ain’t,” a  song that shows his honky-tonk temperament.

What it Ain’t…

Tim Mensy and Monty Criswell pooled resources for the words and lyrics of “What it Ain’t”. Josh Turner released the single on April 17, 2004. The song was part of his successful album “Long Black Train.” Also, it was the same album that provided us his singles such as “You Don’t Mess Around with Jim” and his massive song “Long Black Train.” 

Moreover, “What it Ain’t” didn’t receive a good response like his other singles. However, it placed at number thirty-one on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. It reached that position on August 7, 2004. It is still a high position for a starter.

He even received a standing ovation due to his great performance. After his presentation and the release of his single “Long Black Train,” he was acknowledged and that began his rise to prominence. The song didn’t top the charts. Nevertheless, it became his breakthrough single which pierced the hearts and penetrated the souls of the country music obsessives.
