Josh Turner Reaches the Top of the Singles Chart for the First Time in Six Years With “Hometown Girl”

Josh Turner is back on top.

Six years after earning his previous No. 1 single with 2010’s “All Over Me,” Josh has reached the top of the Mediabase chart with “Hometown Girl.” Written by Marc Beeson and Daniel Tashian, “Hometown Girl” is the second single from Josh’s sixth studio album, Deep South, which dropped on March 10 and reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Album’s chart.

“I feel like this song kind of basically speaks to my female fan base,” says Josh to Nash Country Daily. “I feel like for my female fans, there’s definitely bits and pieces of it that they can just kind of pick and choose from. It’s like, ‘Oh, that’s me’ or ‘Oh, this is me’ or whatever. I’m seeing that every night that I play it. The girls just love it. For the guys, I think that’s the kind of girl that they’re looking for—or they already have one or at least they hope they do. I love the message of the song and the melody is so catchy.”

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
