Everything Is Fine (MCA Nashville)

Josh Turner 

Everything Is Fine (MCA Nashville)

Baby-faced Turner looks nothing like he sounds. He has the most booming bass in country music, a rumble so low it literally shakes rooms. On his third album of old-school honky-tonk, Turner once again pays tribute to his twangy heroes with a set of songs that fills every available space with banjos, mandolins, and pedal steels. Occasionally, he comes off as a bit of a hayseed — "The Longer the Waiting (the Sweeter the Kiss)" is about keeping it in your pants, and "The Way He Was Raised" draws similarities between Jesus and a good ol' country boy. But when Turner longs for girls who won't even look his way — like the ones in "So Not My Baby" and "Baby, I Go Crazy" — the results are indeed sweet.
