Bio

MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner is one of country music’s most successful artists.  With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than five million albums and a disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists —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 received six Inspirational Country Music Awards and garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations.  Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Time Is Love,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me” and more.

This year Turner added author to his list of accomplishments.  His first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood was released April 29, 2014 and his sixth studio album is expected to follow later this year. 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.

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.”

JOSH TURNER IS PREPPING TO RELEASE HIS NEW GOSPEL COLLECTION, I SERVE A SAVIOR.

Josh Turner has wanted to record a gospel collection for a long time, and to have it actually come to fruition means so much to him.

“My fans have been asking for this for a long time and this has been something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time,” says the country singer. “I’ve always wanted to do a gospel record and I never really thought about the circumstances of what that would look like. But to do it on MCA, which has been my home since 2001, it just means a lot to me and it’s appropriate for who I am and what I’ve been called to do.  And so, to be able to give my fans this project, it means a lot to me.”

In addition to the new album, I Serve a Savior, Josh will also release a live performance DVD in partnership with Gaither Studios. Josh performs songs from his debut gospel album, including “I Saw the Light,” “Without Him,” ‘How Great Thou Art” and many more.
