Josh Turner Scores Most Popular Country Song of 2012

(CBS Local) Though it never reached Number One, Josh Turner's song "Time Is Love" turned out to the most popular country song of 2012, according to Billboard.

First released in January, the song appears on Turner's latest album Punching Bag. "Time Is Love" reached Number Two on the Country Songs Chart. The fact that it wound up as the most-played single despite never topping that chart is unusual, too–the only other song to earn that distinction was Lee Brice's "Love Like Crazy," the most popular country song of 2010.

"Time Is Love" is one of the few tracks on Punching Bag that Josh didn't have a hand in writing. As he explained to CBS Local, though, he instantly knew the song would be a hit.

"[It's] just a great song first of all and I knew it from the first time I heard it," he said. "It's one of those songs that just really sticks in your head."

Josh said initially it was the message behind the song that struck him.
