• JOSH TURNER SCORES A NO. 1 ALBUM WITH DEEP SOUTH.

    Josh Turner hits the top of the Billboard country album chart as Deep South bows at No. 1. The collection, which has been five years in the making, features the title track, as well as his Top 10 single “Hometown Girl.”

    Josh says he hopes his fans are excited about the new music. “I…want them to hear the maturity and how I’ve grown as an artist and as a person through this record,” he says. “I want to give them a sense of hope and joy and peace after hearing it. I’m proud of this record, and I’m proud of the packaging and how it all came together. It’s got a youthful, fresh kind of feel to it, but like I say it’s got a maturity to it at the same time. I think it’ll appeal to a lot of different kinds of people.”

    Turner wrote five of the 11 tracks on the well-crafted album and he is impressing fans and critics alike. Rolling Stone declares that Turner, with his “river deep baritone,” delivers an “eagerly awaited album from a country purist.” PEOPLE Magazine says the “Nashville veteran flaunts his deep bass” on Deep South and thatthe album is “an ode to down-home staples, from finding that perfect love on ‘Hometown Girl’ to savoring the laid-back life on the title track.”

    Josh takes his album to  Austin, Texas on Tuesday (March 21st).

  • JOSH TURNER SET TO RELEASE HIS SIXTH STUDIO ALBUM, ‘DEEP SOUTH,’ ON FRIDAY.

    Josh Turner’s highly-anticipated new album, Deep South, releases everywhere this Friday, March 10TH on MCA Nashville. This is the multi-platinum-selling, award-winning country star’s sixth studio album and the excitement is clear.

    “I learned a lot through that process, and I think I grew as a writer and as an artist. But there’s been a lot of life that’s been lived in those four years too,” says Josh. “It’s not just the musical aspect, but the life stuff affects the music side of things. There’s been health things that have happened. We had a child since I started this record making process. The business itself has changed a lot, and there’s been a lot of changes on the business side for me. So, it’s just a really culmination of all that – life and lessons and age and just the kinds of songs that I came across, the kinds of songs I wrote, just the backstories on all of it.”

    Turner takes his rich baritone to NBC’s TODAY Show March 14 to perform his Top 15 hit “Hometown Girl.” The catchy tune is moving critics and fans alike with over 100k in digital sales and topping an impressive 60 million streams across all platforms.

    Josh Turner (over four  years since he’s released an album) OC: …four-year span. :41
    “This record is going to come out a little over four years after I started the record making process. What’s ironic about this record is that I started writing in January of 2013 for this record. because I wanted to get a jumpstart on the next record because I just knew that it would be a smart idea to try to go ahead and start that process for when they wanted another record. Well, it turns out I had plenty of time, but there was no way I could have foreseen that. But it was a good learning experience for me because I wrote I mean I think at this point of by the time we finally decided what songs were going to be on this record and we finished recording and everything I think I was up to like 75 or 80 songs that had been written in that four-year span.”

    Audio / Josh Turner says he’s lived a lot of life and learned a lot as a songwriter since he released his last album, Punching Bag, in 2012.

  • VALENTINE’S DAY AUDIO 2017: AJ, Billy, Canaan, Dierks, Eric, Josh, Lauren, LBT, Luke

    Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special someone. The day of romance we call Valentine’s Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century.

    Over 150 million Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged annually, making Valentine’s Day the second-most popular greeting-card-giving occasion. (This total excludes packaged kids valentines for classroom exchanges.) (Source: Hallmark research)

    2.2 million marriages take place in the United States annually, which breaks down to more than 6,000 a day.

    Tuesday is Valentine’s Day (February 14th), and we’ve got some thoughts and feelings more about love, romance and marriage from several of your favorite country artists. Some are new and some have become our favorites over the years. Which country stars are romantic? Which ones aren’t? Which ones have a good reason to celebrate the holiday that’s all about love?

    Audio / Alan Jackson talks about his love for wife, Denise, over the years.

    AJ (Valentine’s Day) OC: …continue to. :24

    “We got a lot of history together now, and we’re happier than we’ve ever been. So, she’s still beautiful, and she’s always inspired songs. I mean, one of my early hits was a song called ‘I’d Love You All Over Again,’ I wrote for her for our 10th anniversary. I mean, there’s been a zillion songs that have pieces of our good days and bad days inspired, and they continue to.”

    Audio / Billy Currington recalls his first real Valentine’s Day.

    Billy Currington (Valentine’s Day memory) OC: …took off running. :21
    “Yeah, I remember my first girlfriend. I was in first or second grade, but anyway, I remember it was Valentine’s Day and your mom going, ‘You’ve got to give your girlfriend something, and you’ve got to go give it to her.’ I’ll never forget — we got her a box of chocolates or whatever it was. I remember going down to her classroom and knocking on the door, getting her to come to the door. I remember handing it to her, and then I took off running.”

    Audio / Canaan Smith says he tries to show his wife how special she is every day.

    Download

    Canaan Smith (Valentine’s Day) OC: …get lucky. :25
    “I bet I’m just like 99.9% of the rest of the men in the world who could really care less about that holiday. I want my wife to feel special, so I’m gonna take part in it. I’m gonna do my part to make her feel special and loved, but is it necessary? Shouldn’t we do that every day? I mean, it kinda is just another way to get a bunch of money out of us, but oh well. We’ll go see a movie or something. Maybe I’ll get lucky.”

     

    Audio / Dierks Bentley explains the realities of Valentine’s Day.

    Dierks Bentley (Valentine’s Day realities) OC: …that’s awesome. :53
    “I’m gonna be the voice of truth and honesty for Valentine’s Day for a lot of the guys out there listening and for some of the girls listening, as well too. You may like this; you may not, but Valentine’s Day is a really difficult day for guys. When you’re single, it’s stressful for like a month leading up to it, and inevitably, you do something wrong. You don’t get the wrong thing or you say too much, and she’s wanting to get engaged faster than you want to get engaged. I don’t know. It’s just a very stressful holiday. I’m at a time in my life where I got a five-year-old, a three-year-old and a zero-year-old, and we’re just really trying to survive on a day-to-day basis. I mean, we get about four hours of sleep, and we’re literally in survival mode. So, I think there should be a hall pass for guys in that phase of their life. It doesn’t take much at this stage for us to get excited. A dinner alone is heaven. I mean, if we can just have a dinner and a glass of wine, that’s awesome.”

    Audio / Dierks Bentley says so far his ultimate romantic gesture was when he proposed to his wife, Cassidy, and with three children in the house, it’s a little hard to get away together.

    Dierks Bentley (Valentine’s peak) OC: …48-hour party, you know? [chuckles]
    “I kind of peaked when I dropped the engagement ring on her and surprised her with that and took her to Mexico and eloped. I spiked early. I peaked early. Now we’re in our eighth year. I need to find something special to do, but we keep having kids. It’s like, we can’t be away from them. We’re gonna find a week when they’re all in school and everything is set and we’ve got somebody. We have no family in town. We just have some folks that we really count on. When we get everyone locked in place, we’re gonna go somewhere for like two days and get away and have like a two-day, 48-hour party, you know?” [chuckles]

    Audio / Eric Church says his wife, Katherine, loves him in spite of everything.

    Eric Church (Valentine’s) OC: …love song is. :18 “True love to me is when you love a person in spite of all their fallibilities, and for me, I have a lot of ‘em. I’m definitely at times hard to love, and that’s what’s great about Katherine and the way she loves me. She loves me in spite of those things and really for those things.”

    Audio / Josh Turner says his wife would call him a romantic, but now that they have four children, it takes a bit of work to make time for each other.

    Josh Turner (Romantic) OC: …long time to come. :26
    “If you ask my wife Jennifer if I was a romantic, she would definitely say, ‘Yes,’ but she knows that sometimes my hectic schedule and our busy lifestyles can kind of interfere with the romantic side of things. But we do try to make efforts towards being together and having adult conversations and taking time away from the children and doing things that husbands and wives do, so we’ll definitely try to continue that for a long time to come.”

    Audio / Lauren Alaina recalls her first, and potentially disastrous, Valentine’s Day with her longtime boyfriend, Alex.

    Lauren Alaina (Valentine’s Day) OC: …pretty embarrassing. 1:51
    “I think my first Valentine’s Day with Alex, I was trying to be super cute and cook him a Valentine’s Day dinner. I was 18 at the time, and I’d just moved into this brand new apartment in Chattanooga. I was trying to get used to not living with my parents before I moved to Nashville, so I did like six months in Chattanooga in an apartment. And [giggles] my mom makes these really great mashed potatoes, which I’ve modified the recipe, but they’re delicious and I wanted to make him these potatoes, because I knew I could make these potatoes. Well, I did not grow up with a very updated kitchen, so I didn’t have a [garbage] disposal, it was very new to me. So, I peeled the bag of potatoes and put the potato peels in to the sink and tried to use the disposal and it broke it before he got there. Annnd, I turned the water on, and I was baking chicken and I was cooking broccoli and mashed potatoes, and just turned the water on and then I forgot I had the water on, so I overflowed the kitchen sink with the potato peels, and it looked like something died in my sink and my sink was like spitting it up. It was horrible. I was panicking and trying to get it all cleaned up before he got there, and he knocked in the middle of it, like knocked on the door. He was early, of course. He’s always early, and he freaking knocked. I had like potato peels flying through the air, my potatoes were boiling over. I was still boiling the potatoes. I was running behind and he was running early, so it was just crazy. But, we’ve had some great Valentine’s. Last Valentine’s, he cooked for me and everything was smooth, so maybe he should be the cook. Uh, I’m a great cook, I just was trying to use a disposal for the first time, and that was pretty embarrassing.”

    Audio / Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook had a chemistry performing together, but it wasn’t until they each found themselves single…at the same time…that sparks flew romantically. The pair, who wed in 2006, have a son, Elijah.

    Little Big Town (Jimi & Karen fell in love) OC: (Kimberly) …to be together. :48 JIMI: “We were in the band a long time before there was ever anything which is interesting. I think there was always something underlying there that we were kind of trying to ignore. And then when the opportunity came, when all of us, ended up single kind of at the same time, a very strange turn of events for the band in a lot of different ways. And those feelings, you were able to come out with them finally. It was like, we’re single. Let’s get together. And, you know, she has a beautiful heart and she’s absolutely gorgeous and I just love her dearly.”

    PHILLIP: “Get a room!” [laughs]

  • JOSH TURNER WILL PAY TRIBUTE TO RANDY TRAVIS TOMORROW NIGHT.

    Josh Turner will be among the artists celebrating the life and career of his hero, Randy Travis, on Wednesday (February 8th) at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The concert event, 1 Night, 1 Place, 1 Time: A Heroes and Friends Tribute to Randy Travis, will also include performances by Garth Brooks, Alabama, Kenny Rogers, Chris Young, Jeff Foxworthy, Michael Ray, Scotty McCreery, Wynonna, Mark Chesnutt, Kane Brown, Chris Janson, Joe Nichols, Travis Tritt and many others. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Randy Travis Foundation for stroke research and rehabilitation.

    Josh, who says he probably wouldn’t have a career if it wasn’t for Randy Travis, will perform “Three Wooden Crosses,” which Randy took to the top of the charts in 2003.

    “Randy was the guy that basically got me thinking about doing this for a living. Had it not been for Randy, I don’t know if I would’ve had this passion in me to leave my home and everything I knew and come to a strange town and chase something that wasn’t guaranteed,” says Josh. “But Randy made it seem like ordinary guys could come and be a star, you know? He’s also taught me too that there’s more to it than just the stardom part of it. It’s all about how you treat people. It’s working hard; it’s maintaining an image; it’s maintaining your voice and your craft and just delivering quality to the fans year after year. He’s set that standard for guys like me, and I try to live up to that as much as I can.”

    Josh is currently making his way up the country charts (nearing Top 15) with his latest single, “Hometown Girl,” from his upcoming album, Deep South, which is available March 10th.

    Audio / Josh Turner says Randy Travis is the one who helped put him on the path of pursuing his dream of becoming a country singer.

I’ve had him out to shows of mine on the road. He was out at my house at the end of last year, and my boys were all playing their instruments for him and everything. It just brought a smile to his face, so he loved that.”

  • SUPER BOWL 2017: Billy, Canaan, Darius, Josh, Lady A, Easton, Keith, Lauren and LBT

    This Sunday (February 5th), millions of people around the world will be tuning in to Super Bowl 51 (the Big Game), including some of your favorite country artists. Some will be rooting for the Atlanta Falcons, while others will be pulling for the New England Patriots to win the Big Game. Billy Currington, Canaan Smith, Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum, Easton Corbin, Keith Urban, Lauren Alaina and Little Big Town are definitely fans of football…as is Luke Bryan, who is set to perform the National Anthem at the Big Game at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Sunday (February 5th) at 6:30pm ET on FOX.

    Just before the game, Lady A will take part in the official pre-game party at the NRG Center, while Sam Hunt, a former University of Alabama Birmingham quarterback, headlines a rather cool venue – Club Nomadic, a collapsible traveling nightclub – on Thursday (Feb. 2nd).

    “I’m a big football fan. I mean, when I was growing up, if you asked me who my favorite team is now, I couldn’t tell you. But when I was a kid, it was the Dallas Cowboys. And I don’t know if it was because my mom bought my brother a Pittsburgh Steelers pennant for some reason, and bought me a Dallas Cowboys pennant, and of course over the year I fell in love with the Cowboys, and then I wanted a jersey the next Christmas, and then the next one, I wanted [more Cowboys stuff]. So, I became a long-term fan with those guys. But I like it all now that I’m older. I’ll watch any game, it doesn’t matter who’s playing. But [I] love football.”

We sit down, we have a a good time, we have friends over. We have a nice TV, plenty of space. We have a good time. Usually, when it’s all said and done, we have a little dance party afterwards too. It’s cool.”

    Audio / Darius Rucker is a HUGE football fan, as everyone probably knows by now. He even has a special man cave with probably six or seven (or more) televisions mounted on the wall to catch all of the games being played during the season. He explains why he loves football so much. SIDENOTE: He’s a huge Miami Dolphins fan, and word has it, just to be able to meet then Dolphins quarterback, Dan Marino, he asked him to be in a Hootie & the Blowfish video for “Only Wanna Be With You.”

I love college football, but for me watching pro football is better because the speed is so much more. For me, there’s two times a year, man — football season and waiting for football season.”

A couple of little finger foods, but without cold beer, it’s not football watching.”

    “My dad raised me to love football, so I think it’s like kind of in my blood to be obsessed with it. I feel like the guys are so passionate and they try so hard. Those people love playing that game as much as I love singing. I just love the heart and the drive and the passion behind it. I feel like those boys are playing as hard as they can – in college football and pro football – because it’s what they love to do and it’s their passion, and I just, I don’t know. I love it.”

    “Gosh, let’s see cheese dip. I would really like some cheese dip in my life again. Um, I’m a big fan of wings and hot dogs and pizza and cheesecake and poppers and cheese sticks and cheese, anything that has to do with cheese. Did you realize everything I named besides the wings, which you dip in blue cheese, had to do with cheese?” (laughs)

    “I was the quarterback to my powder puff team. I was running the ball and I came around the corner – this was in high school – and a foreign exchange student, I think her name was Inga (KIMBERLY: “Inga.”), and I didn’t want to fumble ‘cause my brother and my dad were there, and I come from this very athletic family, so I held onto the ball. I knew I was going to go down, so I let my head hit first and I bit all the way through, but I didn’t fumble and I had a hole in my face, though. The sad thing is that it was just flag football, but I left my flags on and cleats and everything, ‘cause it looked cool, and I had blood running all down my jersey. I went to the emergency room like that, and they sewed up my lip.”

    “I’m very proud of this record. There’s about four songs on this record here that I’ve written and there’s a lot of cool outside songs that I’ve come across and very proud of. There’s a lot of different sounding production on here, but at the core of this record is the Josh Turner sound you’re used to. I think you’re really gonna enjoy it, ‘cause I’m really proud of it. It’s been a long time coming, I know. Now that I’ve got it all together, now that the music’s together and now that the music packaging and everything is done and almost hold it into my hand.
