Josh Turner

Gary Allen's photoMulti-platinum MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner, is one of country music's most recognizable hit-makers. 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 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and 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 released his sixth studio album Deep South in March featuring the #1 hit single "Hometown Girl." Turner shares, "I've lived a lot of life since the release of my last album (Punching Bag) and I've learned a lot during the making of this album. I have grown as a writer and as an artist. It's been cool to see this culmination of life and lessons and age boiled down into this project and I am really proud of Deep South." Turner wrote four of the 11 tracks on the highly-anticipated album including the title track and he is impressing fans and critics alike.

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, 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.

From Tenino, Washington, Craig has made the leap from songwriter to artist with a style that's rooted in the 90's, yet sounds just ahead of the curve. It combines the down-home themes of artists like Tim McGraw and Travis Tritt, the soul-bearing honesty and pure-intentioned romance of Keith Urban with vocals that land somewhere between Vince Gill and Urban.

Having co-penned songs including Parmalee's "Close Your Eyes," Jason Aldean's "Church Pew or Bar Stool," Dustin Lynch's "World to Me," and Love and Theft's "Whiskey on my Breath," he released his self-titled debut EP in the spring of 2016.

The former college baseball player immediately gained attention for his debut single "Reckon" including being named one of Rolling Stone Country's "Top 10 Artists You Need To Know" and earning a Taste of Country's RISERS nomination. His follow-up single, "Just a Phase," was a Top 40 hit at Country radio.

Craig hosts a special festival each year in his hometown called the Four Square Mile Music Festival. The proceeds go to help the local music and sports programs to help buy instruments, jerseys and equipment.
