“I’ve always said that any song you hear coming from my voice, you’re going to hear bits and pieces of those five guys,” says Turner. “They taught me how to be Josh Turner.”

Earlier today Josh treated fans to a first look at Country State of Mind during a special Facebook live session.

Country State of Mind spans more than half a century of classic Country music, encompassing both well-known standards and deep-catalog cuts, many of which hold deep personal meaning. Turner also invited other stellar country voices — some heroes, some contemporaries — to join him in the studio as he crafted his celebration of classic country.

The new rendition of the Randy Travis classic Forever and Ever, Amen marks Travis’ first recording session since an incapacitating 2013 stroke.

“Randy has always been my hero. He was the reason I wanted to become a country singer,” recounts Turner. “He’s an inspiring figure, not just to me but to a lot of people, so to have him sing on this record is pretty special.”

Country State of Mind is produced by Kenny Greenberg. The track listing is:
