When Josh Turner released his debut album 'Long Black Train,' it didn't take him long to turn the heads of country music fans. While the album produced three hit singles, we chose 'Long Black Train' for the Top 100 Country Songs because of its critical success.

The title track spent 30 weeks on country charts, and Turner's deep voice marked his contribution to traditional country gospel -- a style that has become rare as more crossover artists join the club. With a mix of expert dobro, guitar, fiddle and drum playing, 'Long Black Train' sounds just like a long train whistle.
