Longtime Atlanta Braves fan Josh Turner joined the organization Friday night as Braves Nation continued its ceremonial countdown of the few remaining home games at Turner Field.
“It was such an honor for me to go the Braves game this past Friday and to pull down the number nine commemorating the nine home games left at Turner Field,” shares Turner. “I’ve had so many good memories there – I’ve introduced all my boys to Braves baseball there. We’ve witnessed some great games and we’ve had a lot of fun times.”
“Turner Field will always be special to me,” continues the country star. “I never got to go to Fulton County Stadium, so ‘The Ted’ is where I made my first Braves memories. I don’t remember the first game I went to there, but all of my children have had their first experiences there too.”
Turner is currently on the road in support of his latest radio single, “Hometown Girl,” which Rolling Stone Country notes, “pairs the South Carolina native’s unmistakable, country-to-the-core baritone with a modern, rollicking beat.” Radio programmers across the country are weighing in saying “it’s a GREAT country song” (WNCY Green Bay), “Josh has hit a home run with this tune” (KJKE Oklahoma City) and “the unmistakable voice is back with a fantastic song” (WUBE Cincinnati). Fans can find Turner at his upcoming tour dates in Ky., Ill., Texas and Okla. Preview “Hometown Girl” HERE and hear over an hour of Turner’s biggest hits HERE.

Josh Turner (Braves Turner Field) OC: …a good time. :52
“It was such an honor for me to go and be invited to the Braves game this past Friday to pull down the No. 9 commemorating nine home games left there at Turner Field. I’ve had so many good memories there at Turner Field. I’ve introduced all my boys to Braves baseball there, and we’ve just witnessed some great games and we’ve had a lot of fun times, met a lot of great people, met a lot of the players and just a lot of members of the Braves staff and organization, and they always just make us feel at home when we’re there. It was so much fun pulling the number down, and I got to go do an interview with Chip Caray and Tom Glavin, which was an honor. It was a fun night. [I] had my whole family there, a lot of friends there, and we had a good time.”
