After a wait that many country fans feel was far too long, Josh Turner is finally headed back to the country airwaves. At last week’s Big Heart Bash, Turner debuted “Hometown Girl,” his first single in more than 18 months and the lead track from his forthcoming sixth studio album.

“Hometown Girl” is classic Josh Turner. “I need me a little homegrown, hometown girl,” he sings in the glossy baritone that made his early-2000s hit “Your Man” such a success. “I’ve been lookin’ all over the world for a pretty little hometown girl.”

Co-written by songwriter Marc Beeson, “Hometown Girl” is a sweet track that extolls the virtues of remembering where you come from. It’s also likely a look at Turner’s new album, for which no release date has yet been set.

“The first time I heard ‘Hometown Girl’ I was excited,” Turner said in a statement. “First of all, it sounded like a hit to me. It just had that chorus and vibe that held your attention and didn’t lose you. Honestly, it was different for me and that was kind of what I was looking for.”

“Hometown Girl” will be released for official radio adds on Tuesday, May 31. In the meantime you can scope out video of Turner performing the track below, and purchase it via iTunes.
