Punching Bag by Josh Turner
Released: Jun 2012
Label: MCA Nashville
After the adrenaline rush of Punching Bag's intro and title track, Josh Turner's fourth effort settles nicely into the traditional country groove fans have come to love. With a despondent-sounding piano, lonely slide guitar and Turner's deep voice, "Cold Shoulder" sounds like a classic tear-in-my-beer country song from days gone by. "Pallbearer," which features Iris DeMent's haunting vocals and Marty Stuart's mourning mandolin, is a stunning left-at-the-altar song that uses bereaved funeral images to make its point. Other highlights: "Whatcha Reckon," "For the Love of God" and "Left Hand Man."
