Josh Turner

When: Thu., June 27 2013

There are many ways to objectify someone, but the New York Times' take on Josh Turner may be the most original. "He is first and maybe last a larynx," wrote Ben Ratliff in a decidedly lukewarm review of the country crooner's most recent album. Actually, Turner's smooth bass-baritone works beautifully on songs like 2006's Grammy-nominated "Would You Go With Me," a perfect complement to the track's low-slung electric guitar and doubled mandolin parts. Given that four of his studio albums have made Billboard's Top 5, Turner's relatively traditionalist approach clearly hasn't stood in the way of crossover success. You can catch him tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com) for $38 to $48. Showtime is 8, with Morgan Frazier opening. — Bill Forman
