Nashville, TN – Josh Turner’s single “All Over Me” holds the #1 spot this week on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart, giving him back to back #1’s.
“All Over Me” is the follow-up to Turner’s 4-week #1 hit single “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” which currently is the Most Played Song of the Year for 2010, according to Mediabase.
“All Over Me” is the second single from the album HAYWIRE, which debuted at #5 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart earlier this year. According to Billboard, Turner is one of only six acts with two #1 singles so far this year, joining a list that includes Zac Brown Band, Billy Currington, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton and Carrie Underwood.
“Having ‘All Over Me’ go #1 is a big deal to me,” says Turner. “I’m so thrilled but I haven’t really figured out a way to celebrate just yet. With two little boys at home and another one on the way, it is pretty crazy around our house right now.”
“Josh has become one of the most consistent hit makers in our format and has established a sound that radio and fans have wholeheartedly embraced,” says Royce Risser, Senior Vice President of National Promotion UMG Nashville. “From ‘Long Black Train’ to ‘Your Man’ to ’All Over Me,’ Josh’s songs have proven they have huge staying power long after they have come off the charts.”
The third single from Haywire will be the Don Williams’ classic hit “I Wouldn’t Be A Man.” The song will be available to radio stations across the country on Wednesday, October 13 at 10 a.m. CT. Turner’s award-winning producer Frank Rogers says, “When we first listened to ‘I Wouldn’t Be A Man,’ we knew this would be the perfect song to showcase Josh’s tremendous vocal range. This song should be a monster hit for him and remind people that he is one of the most solid and unique male vocalists we have in country music today.”
