JOSH TURNER’S FAVORITE HALLOWEEN COSTUME WAS A “STAR” TURN AS A JEDI MASTER.

Josh Turner and his family (including wife Jennifer and their four sons) enjoy dressing up as a family for Halloween. The multi-platinum selling star says his favorite family costumes was a few years ago when they dressed up as Star Wars characters.

 

“My favorite family costume was from a couple of years ago when I had my six-and-a-half-month-old beard going, and me and the whole family dressed up as Star Wars characters. So, I was a young Obi Wan Kenobi, Jennifer was Princess Leia, Colby and Marion were Storm Troopers, Hampton was Darth Vadar and Hawk was, I guess, pretty much still a baby, and he dressed up as Yoda. It was pretty classic.”

JORDAN DAVIS INSTANTLY “FELL IN LOVE” WITH HIS LATEST SINGLE, “TAKE IT FROM ME.”

Jordan Davis is closing in on the Top 20 with “Take It From Me,” which he co-wrote with his brother Jacob Davis and songwriter Jason Gantt, and he says the lyrics of the song represent him very well.

“I think that ‘Take It From Me’ is a little more me lyrically as far as like the delivery of it,” says the Louisiana native. “I think you can kind of see a few more of my influences on some of those lyrics.”

“Take It From Me” is the follow-up to his recent No. 1 smash, “Singles You Up,” which has been certified platinum for more than 1 million copies sold.

Jordan will hit the road early next year on Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour 2019, which kicks off January 18th in Chicago. In the meantime, you can catch him with Kip Moore on his After the Sunburn Tour. Their next stop is Thursday (October 25th) in Denver, Colorado at The Fillmore Auditorium.

Jordan Davis (Take It From Me) 3 OC: …it too. :34
“‘Take It From Me’ and ‘Singles You Up’ were, I feel like neck-and-neck, for the first single. I feel like if we would’ve gone the other way, ‘Singles You Up’ would’ve been right behind it. I think that ‘Take It From me’ is a little more me lyrically as far as like the delivery of it. I think you can kind of see a few more of my influences on some of those lyrics. When you have something like that, even as a songwriter and for us that write songs a lot, you still don’t get a ton of those that you just can’t stop listening to. If we fall in love with something that quick, I think we think that our fans would gravitate towards it too.”
