"Would You Go with Me" is a song written by Shawn Camp and John Scott Sherrill, and recorded by American country music artist Josh Turner. It was released in April 2006 as the second single from his album Your Man. It is the first track on Your Man.
It was his second number 1 country single in a row after "Your Man" peaked at the top on the Billboard Country chart in early 2006. "Would You Go with Me" spent two weeks at the top. On the Billboard Hot 100, its highest position was number 43.
Shortly after the song had peaked, Turner's performance of the song on the CMAs lead to a huge sales spike on online retailers sending the song back up the Billboard Hot 100, Hot Digital Songs, and Pop 100 charts to new peaks. On September 7, 2012 it was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
In late 2006, the nominees for the 2007 Grammy Awards were announced. Turner received a nomination for Male Country Vocal Performance of the Year for "Would You Go with Me." He also earned a nomination for Country Album of the Year for Your Man.
The video follows a boy and a girl who wander into the farmhouse as children. It shows them at different stages in their lives together in different locations all within the house using CGI.
The video starts out as two children run into an empty house. Josh begins singing in the dark house while holding a lamp. The children find a jar of sand in the house and dump it out onto the floor, transforming the room into the beach. It then shows them in various outdoor locations at different ages. At the end of the video, the boy, now an old man, returns to the beach with a chest of his wife's ashes. The little girl, played by Peter Cetera's second daughter Senna, then returns and the old man transforms into the little boy again and the two run off together. Josh is shown throughout the house and outdoor settings singing. Musicians playing the mandolin, dobro, guitar and banjo are also featured in the video.
