Josh Turner will head out on the Long Black Train 20th Anniversary Tour, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of his hit album, Long Black Train and the album’s second single of the same name. The Long Black Train album will also be released on vinyl for the first time on May 19th to coincide with the anniversary of the single’s original 2003 release date.
Josh said, “I wrote this song during my senior year at Belmont University, and I remember thinking to myself, no one is going to want to hear this old timey gospel song . . . I credit this song with landing me my first publishing deal, my record deal and my first Opry performance. A lot of folks think that this was my first single, but it was actually my second. I was hesitant when the label suggested it be the next single, nothing else on the radio sounded like it. I don’t know where I’d be today without this song and so we named the tour for this 20th anniversary and will be celebrating all year long.”
Josh's Long Black Train 20th Anniversary Tour launches on March 4th in Dothan, AL.
