Combining respect for country music’s traditions with a contemporary edge has made Josh Turner one of the industry’s most successful artist. On March 10, the multi-Platinum-selling singer releases his highly-awaited, sixth studio album, Deep South. The album features 11 tracks including his melodic reverie in “Lay Low” and his currently climbing Top 20 hit, “Hometown Girl.”
“I’m really proud of this album,” says Turner. “It was really important for me to expand creatively and explore in new ways for this record. The way I pick songs is different now. There are so many things in my life and career that have matured me as an artist.” Turner follows that thought with the reminder, “I’ve had another child since my last project!”
For Turner, the title Deep South “represents hardworking people who find joy in the simple things in life; heritage, church, community, high school sports, being outdoors. It is a culture.”
With his rich, deep voice and distinctive style, MCA Nashville recording artist Turner is one of country music’s most recognizable and successful artists. Turner’s album sales/streaming top seven million to date and he has impressively amassed over one billion lifetime audio streams. Turner has received six Inspirational Country Music Awards and garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA and ACM nominations, and is one of the youngest members inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Time Is Love,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me” and more.
