"King Size Manger Tour"

(From All Music.com-Stephen Thomas Erlewine) From the outset of his career, Josh Turner styled himself as a country traditionalist. His deep, resonant bass voice recalled a supple Johnny Cash and his first hit, 2003's sober and steady "Long Black Train," was written in tribute to Hank Williams. Turner would wind up incorporating sly elements of modern country music -- "Time Is Love," one of the biggest country hits of 2012, shimmered with a gloss designed for adult contemporary crossovers and "Why Don't We Just Dance" was clearly set in the modern world -- but he never chased trends, which made him seem like a preservationist in the eras of arena and bro-country. While Turner was never the biggest star in country, his steadfast embrace of the music's core values meant that he was a constant presence for nearly two decades, landing his first number one single in 2005 with "Your Man," and still able to reach the upper echelons of the charts as late as 2016, when "Hometown Girl" peaked at number two on Billboard's Country Airplay. Turner spent the years after "Hometown Girl" exploring his roots, delivering a gospel album, a country covers record and a holiday LP in the years spanning 2018 through 2021.
