Conclusion

Pro-social Content

Turner asks a woman to share life's challenges with him on the musical marriage proposal "Would You Go With Me." "No Rush" is a somnolent call to slow down and enjoy romance amid a fast-paced world. Fond recollections of simple country roots appear on "Way Down South" and "Lord Have Mercy on a Country Boy." The latter eulogizes his old hunting and fishing spots ("They dammed the stream ... Now the whole meadow is a parking lot"). "Me and God" testifies to a personal relationship with the Lord ("He's my father, He's my friend/The beginning and the end/He rules the world with the staff and rod/We're a team, me and God"). Turner lavishes praise on his "angelic" wife, but ...

Objectionable Content

"Angels Fall Sometimes" presumes that people can become angels or vice versa. In addition to the celebration of honky-tonk life on "White Noise," racial plays on words could be considered offensive. In an aside, a jilted guy regrets having not consulted Nostradamus ("Baby's Gone Home to Mama").

Summary Advisory

With rich, deep vocals only Randy Travis could duplicate, Turner sings about love, simple life and a bond with God. A few flaws, but mostly rock solid.
