“Country fans get to start the concert season early this year at DPAC; no need to wait until summer! Josh Turner promises an energetic show powered by his one-of-a-kind vocals and full of his greatest hits from ‘Long Black Train’ to ‘Time Is Love’. Plus, no worries about the weather. Enjoy an intimate night indoors with one of country’s best,” said Emily McLoughlin, Director of Marketing for Concerts & Comedy at DPAC. 

As a family man, a philanthropist, a devoted Christian, and a passionate sports fan, you might say Josh Turner’s commitments run as deep as his voice.

Josh Turner is one of country music’s most successful artists. With a distinctive style, Turner has sold more than five million albums and is 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 Grammys®, 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.

Last 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.
