Saving Country Music’s 2020 Song of the Year Nominees
By Trigger, December 08, 2020
Below is an excerpt of “Saving Country Music’s 2020 Song of the Year Nominees” featuring Joshua Ray Walker’s “Voices”:
“Joshua Ray Walker – “Voices”
Dallas native Joshua Ray Walker wastes no time going to work on your emotional receptors on his new record Glad You Made It, starting it off with this tale of a man making the choice to roll his truck into the lake instead of struggling to keep on living, polishing off a bottle as he does to “make it look like a mistake.” This is the kind of mercilessness Joshua Ray Walker shows to jerk those tears out like only the finest country music can.
Not just a songwriting tour de force, Joshua Ray Walker’s yodel and high range are another highlight of “Voices,” with the song’s rather impressive and elongated note at the 2/3rds interval drawing out the emotion of the story like only a top notch singer can.”
