Josh Turner’s “All About You” Hits Airwaves

Josh Turner

Josh Turner’s upbeat new single, “All About You” was released to radio Monday (May 15). The new tune, written by Craig Wiseman and Justin Weaver, follows Turner’s No. 1 hit “Hometown Girl” off of his latest No. 1-debuting album, Deep South (MCA Nashville).

“From the first time I heard ‘All About You,’ I loved the energy that it had,” shares Turner. “It really had a drive to it and on top of that, it’s got a really simple, yet profound lyric basically saying ‘it doesn’t really matter what we’re doing as long as I’m with you, that’s what matters most.’ We’ve been playing it live a lot lately and the fans are digging it and I’m excited to say it’s my new single.”


Brett Eldredge Releases Instant Grat Track From New CD

Brett Eldredge is releasing a new track, “The Long Way,” from his upcoming self-titled album set for release Aug. 4. “Instant download tracks are my favorite things about releasing an album, because you get to release them before the full record comes out,” Eldredge said. “I don’t like to wait and I don’t like my fans to wait!”

Written by Eldredge and Matt Rogers, “The Long Way” is one of Eldredge’s favorite songs on the new album. “For me, ‘Long Way’ stands out as such a powerful look at love and that search for something deeper. It’s about that big moment when you finally meet the person you’ve been waiting to meet, and you want to know everything about them. You don’t just want a quick breeze through their hometown and life, you want to take the long way. It’s a beautiful sentiment about love.”

Chris Young Not Losing Any Sleep Over New Single

Chris Young has released a new single, “Losing Sleep” that immediately shot to the No. 2 spot on the iTunes Country chart within hours of its release.

“I continue to be blown away by the response to my last record and it makes me push myself even harder in the studio and onstage,” said Young. “With every new album I think I want to try and write something easier and not so high in my register, but of course, on ‘Losing Sleep’ we push the boundaries even further and layer in some fun, new grooves too.”

The song is the lead single from the RCA Nashville artist’s upcoming seventh album due out later this year, and was penned by Young with Josh Hoge and Chris DeStefano.
