All American Morning News with Eric Scott
4/13/2012 (TheBoot.com) — Josh Turner has set June 12 as the release date for his fifth studio album, Punching Bag. It’s the follow-up to the
singer’s Haywire, which reached No. 2 on the country chart (and No. 5 on the Billboard 200) in 2010. The first single from the new album, “Time Is Love,” is currently in the Top 20.
Josh co-wrote eight of the disc’s 11 tracks, penning many of them at the newly-built cabin on the property behind his home just outside Nashville.
“I’ve found throughout the years that I needed a place where I can go with no TV, no computer, no phone and just have no distractions and just be able to sit and think and just not be disturbed,” the South Carolina native told The Boot of his writing retreat. “It is a log cabin with a wrap-around porch, [and] it’s got a stone chimney fireplace. I want to be able to display a lot of the things that I’ve been able to accomplish, a lot of who I am in there, not just musically.”
