Josh Turner

I love all kinds of music. In fact, I have many favorite songs in almost every genre!

I know many people are not big fans of country music, but it will always have a special place in my heart :) 
I love how the songs can tell a story...I also love how country music has been a platform for Christians to speak up in their mainstream songs.  

One example is Josh Turner. Click on the link below and you can watch a short video of Josh Turner talking about His relationship with Christ on 

In the video Josh talks about His music, and particularly is song "long black train". This song became his first hit and plays on mainstream country stations. The song is about the temptations of may look pretty and exciting on the outside, but it only leads to destruction. 
I love the chorus of the song

"There is victory in the Lord I say, 
victory in the Lord. 
Cling to the father and his holy name, 
and don't go riding on that long black train."

cool, huh? 



  1. I heard this song a few weeks ago, and have loved it ever since!

  2. I adore Joshy. Ike and I labeled "Will You go With me?" as one of "our songs"... we have like 12. ;) LOL!

  3. Josh Turner is my favorite country artist. He has so many good songs. My top favorite of his is : The way he was raised.
