CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- On July 8, Pocahontas County native Wyatt Turner uploaded his latest song, "You Remind Me of West Virginia," to YouTube. It went viral within days and has since amassed more than 151,000 views. The ode to his home state, which was released to radio stations nationwide on Monday, was inspired in part by his fiancée, he told the Gazette last month.
Turner, who now lives in Nashville to pursue a country music career, will be in Teays Valley at 7 p.m. Friday for a free show at Barnyard BBQ, 1101 Hospital Dr., Teays Valley. Call 304-964-3322 or www.thebarnyardbbq.com.
