Turner’s rich, deep voice and distinctive style have made him one of country music’s most recognizable hit makers, selling more than 12 million units.
A disciple of traditional country music; his debut single "Long Black Train" was inspired by listening to Hank Williams. The single went to no. 13 on the country charts and led to a full album on MCA in 2003. "Long Black Train" went platinum and led to a string of hits that garnered Turner a coveted place in the Grand Ole Opry as its youngest member.
His 2012 Billboard No. 1 release, "Punching Bag", Turner earned multiple GRAMMY, Country Music Association (CMA), and Academy of Country Music (ACM) nominations. Turner’s 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.
Turner has also added author and philanthropist to his list of accomplishments. His first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood, was released in 2014. He created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student in South Carolina, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools.
