Josh Turner

Hello, friends!

Do you watch the “The CMA Awards”? I have always been a fan of country music because it’s what I grew up with. There’s something about it that’s just so calming and good-for-the-soul for me. When I was younger, I wanted to be a country music singer, I remember preforming in the talent show with my hair big and curly wearing a sequined jacket, yes, this actually happened. Unfortunately, the photos have been destroyed I cannot find the photos.

One of my favorite artists in country music is Josh Turner. You can hear his new single “Hometown Girl” hereJosh Turner has the most unique, deep, and soulful voice. I remember when I first heard him sing on the track “Would You Go with Me” – I was in love with his sound.

With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 12 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry.  From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his most recent 2012 Billboard No. 1 release Punching Bag, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me,” “All Over Me,” and “Time Is Love,” the most played country song of 2012.

Turner added author to his list of accomplishments. His first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood was released in 2014. The Hannah, S.C. native has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools.
