KMLE 107.9 Country recently reported that while Josh Turner does a great deal of writing in his “writer’s cottage” he doesn’t particularly like to refer to it as a “man cave.” The singer wrote 8 out of the 12 tracks off his latest endeavor “Punching Bag,” but the place he writes seems to be a bit different than your typical guys hangout.
“A lot of people call it a man cave but I don’t really refer to it as that. It’s not a place that I go to hang out with my buddies and all that,” he said. “There’s no TV in there, there’s no phone in there, there’s no Wi-Fi.”
Josh built the place for writing and that is where he does it best.
“I built it specifically for the purpose of writing and creating and just being inspired. It’s definitely been that place. Those eight songs that ended up on the record, they were all written right there in the writer’s cottage. It was very fulfilling for me because it was a challenge to build this place. It took me two full years to build it from start to finish.”
Josh isn’t the first singer to have a place dedicated to writing. Country legend Johnny Cash also had a cabin he retreated for writing as well. While Josh was well aware of Johnny’s cabin, he said his is a bit different.
“I was not inspired by Johnny Cash’s cabin but I was fully aware of the Cash Cabin,” he said. “I think his cabin was a little more rustic and a little smaller than mine. I think his is completely out in the woods. Mine’s a little more lush and modern and a whole lot bigger.”
Well whatever you want to call it, the place seems to be a good place for Josh to knock out some awesome songs!
