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.

MCA Nashville’s Josh Turner takes the No. 1 spot on the MediaBase country radio airplay chart with “Hometown Girl.” Written by Marc Beeson and Daniel Tashian, “Hometown Girl” immediately hit home for Turner’s fans as it “pairs the South Carolina native’s unmistakable, country-to-the-core baritone with a modern, rollicking beat” (Rolling Stone).
“Man, I am beyond excited about ‘Hometown Girl’ going No. 1 this week. It’s a pretty sweet week for me considering the journey that I’ve been through to get to this place,” says Josh. “I’m thankful to country radio for playing this song. I’m thankful to the fans for loving it and buying the record and buying the single. I’m feeling a lot of love from a lot of different directions this week, so it’s a pretty good place to be.”
“‘Hometown Girl’ is officially No. 1!” shares an elated Turner via Twitter. “Thank you God, country radio and MCA Nashville! It’s Party Time!!”
