This heartbreaking classic country tune finds Turner singing about the progressive dissolution of a romance. "The more she turns her back, the more the nights get colder," he croons.
Turner intentionally wrote the song to sound like a Vern Gosdin tune. Nicknamed "The Voice" by his peers, Gosdin started his music career as a member of Chris Hillman's bluegrass band The Hillman and one half of The Gosdin Brothers. He later found success as a solo artist clocking up 19 top-ten solo hits on the Country music charts from the late 1970s through the early 1990s. "He was an amazing artist and he really never got the credit that he deserved. He's one of the best singers that country music has ever known," Turner told The Boot.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
