Honestly, Josh Turner could probably sing the alphabet and it would sound absolutely amazing, but when he performs a classic hit like Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire", and makes the song his own, that's something to be proud of.
Turner took the stage at the legendary Grand Ole Opry to perform "Ring Of Fire" and proceeded to blow the audience away with his rendition. Of course, no one can sing the song like Cash, but Turner definitely does it justice. Josh chose to perform this particular song because the man who penned it had recently passed away - Merle Kilgore. Josh went on to say a few appreciative words about the songwriter.
"As many of you all know, Mr. Merle Kilgore is in the Songwriter's Hall Of Fame, he's written all kinds of major hits for country music... The world of country music and the world in general is going to miss Mr. Merle Kilgore. We're going to do this next song in honor and memory of Mr. Merle Kilgore."
"Ring Of Fire" was co-written by June Carter Cash, and is said to be inspired by her love for Johnny. It was released in 1963 on Cash's Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash album. It peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles album.
Turner's rendition is phenomenal, especially with his deep, southern baritone! The audience screamed and applauded his performance. Check it out!
