Multiplatinum MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner, one of country music’s most recognizable hitmakers, returns to Penn’s Peak at 8 p.m. Nov. 2.
With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 8 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music and one of the youngest members of the esteemed Grand Ole Opry.
From his 2003 platinum-selling debut, “Long Black Train,” to his most recent release, “I Serve a Savior,” Turner has garnered multiple Grammy, CMA, and ACM nominations. His hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me,” “All Over Me” and “Time Is Love,” the most played country song of 2012.
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 that the 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.”
Turner checked off another bucket list item when he added author to his list of accomplishments. His first book, “Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood” was released in 2014.
As highlighted in the book, the Hannah, South Carolina, 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 firsthand the importance of arts education in schools.
