It’s an album Josh Turner hopes will leave you singing “Hallelujah!”, from boots to the Bible, the singer gives us a glimpse into his deep-rooted faith.
Set to release this October 26th is Josh Turner’s latest album I Serve A Savior; a full-length gospel record.
Growing up in a Christian household, Turner explains he has faced a plentiful of spiritual experiences that helped inspire this album. Although he started by kicking his boots through the country door, he admits in his album teaser that he “has always wanted to do a gospel album.”
Aside from personal experience, Turner hopes this album will shine Jesus’ light into the entertainment world.
“I know from experience that the message in the songs from this record are messages of true hope and it’s hope that you can actually cling to and count on.”
I Serve A Savior wouldn’t be complete without the help from some familiar faces. Featured on the gospel album is a co-written song by his wife Jennifer, and their eldest son, Hampton. On the same record, his three youngest sons show off their golden vocals as well. (That’s one talented pack!)
The album will cover an array of Christian classics that Turner grew up listening to as well as original songs and live recordings. “I Serve A Savior” is the first track to be released before the album’s reveal date.
Here is the full track list:
1. “I Saw The Light” (Featuring Sonya Isaacs)
2. “I Pray My Way Out of Trouble” (Featuring Bobby Osborne)
3. “Great Is Your Faithfulness”
4. “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot”
5. “Without Him”
6. “I Serve a Savior”
7. “How Great Thou Art” (Featuring Sonya Isaacs)
8. “The River (of Happiness)” (Featuring the Turner Family Live From Gaither Studios)
9.” Amazing Grace”
10. “Long Black Train” (Live From Gaither Studios)
12. “Me And God” (Live From Gaither Studios)
Although this won’t be the first time we’re hearing a spiritual hymn from the country music star. You might remember Turner’s 2009 single “Me And God” which tells the story of the father-son relationship he held with the Lord. Turner describes being “a team” with God even in the hardest of times. This heartfelt single foreshadowed the type of music Turner had faith he would produce at some point during his career.
Turner knew we couldn’t wait a month for the release, thankfully he treated us with a live session of his “I Serve A Savior.” Watch below.
