MCA Nashville’s Josh Turner takes the No. 1 spot on the MediaBase country radio airplay chart with “Hometown Girl.” Written by Marc Beeson and Daniel Tashian, “Hometown Girl” immediately hit home for Turner’s fans as it “pairs the South Carolina native’s unmistakable, country-to-the-core baritone with a modern, rollicking beat” (Rolling Stone).
“‘Hometown Girl’ is officially No. 1!” shares an elated Turner via Twitter on Sunday (April 23rd). “Thank you God, country radio and MCA Nashville! Party Time!!”
“Hometown Girl,” off of the multi-platinum-selling star’s No. 1-debuting album, Deep South, tallies over 200,000 in digital sales and with 16 consecutive weeks of streaming growth, the song totals over 87.5M streams.
Turner’s upcoming tour dates include Mississippi, Maryland and the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.
