Love New Country as Randy Travis taps Josh Turner for ‘Diggin Up Bones”


Many people would say that Josh Turner belongs to the era of new country simply because he is unforgivably gorgeous or his music catalog might not have satisfied most traditional country fans who see Josh Turner’s belongingness to the new sound which would sometimes bridge the gap between pop and country.

 Diggin Up Bones, Randy Travis ft Josh Turner

While facing many detractors, Josh Turner is undeniably a disciple of Honky Tonk sound. Nevermind that his ‘Your Man’ is an original by Chris Stapleton who is considered the last of those who do country outlaw music, Josh Turner simply enjoyed this cover with Randy Travis singing Diggin’ Up Bones.

On this video with Josh Turner and Randy Travis performing the said song live, it cannot be denied that these two voices belonging to a different scene of country harmonized perfectly to deliver a breath of fresh air to Travis’ faithful fans.

Watch the enjoyable cover here:


“Diggin’ Up Bones”

Last night I dug your picture out from my old dresser drawer
I set it on the table and I talked to it ’til four
I read some old love letters right up ’til the break of dawn
Yeah I’ve been sittin’ alone diggin’ up bones

Then I went through the jewelry and I found our wedding rings
I put mine on my finger and I gave yours a fling
Across this lonely bedroom of our recent broken home
Yeah tonight I’m sitting alone diggin’ up bones

I’m diggin’ up bones, I’m diggin’ up bones
Exhuming things that’s better left alone
I’m resurrecting memories of a love that’s dead and gone
Yeah tonight I’m sittin’ alone diggin’ up bones

And I went through the closet and I found some things in there
Like that pretty negligee that I bought you to wear
And I recall how good you looked each time you had it on
Yeah tonight I’m sittin’ alone diggin’ up bones

I’m resurrecting memories of a love that’s dead and gone
Yeah tonight I’m sittin’ alone diggin’ up bones
