Josh Turner has claimed the top spot on the Country Aircheck country singles chart this week. Hometown Girl was a song Josh wanted to record after he first heard it.
Hometown Girl is a cut from Turner’s new album Deep South. Turner was at his producer’s house and they were talking about finding something different that wasn’t like anything Josh had recorded before. He had the melody stuck in his head before he knew the lyrics.
Josh said, “I loved the message in the song and I just felt like my female fan base would really get this song and relate to this song. I felt like the guys in my fan base, I feel like that’s the kind of girl they’re looking for or they have already.”
Hometown Girl was written by Marc Beeson and Daniel Tashian. It marks the first number one hit for Josh Turner since All Over Me hit number one back in 2010.
