But Josh explains that he still feels the need to "re-invent the wheel," and "to try to adapt" and "find ways to be relevant" while maintaining true to his signature sound. He adds that he's been looking to longtime country stars, and trying to learn some keys to longevity from them.
Josh doesn't say when he'll have new music in stores. His last album was 2012's "Punching Bag," which features the hit "Time Is Love." But Turner's first book, "Man Stuff," is in stores now.
