Josh hit the stage and pulled no punches, playing a sweet 16-song set that included big hits like “Your Man”, “Punching Bag”, “Time Is Love”, “Haywire”, and “Would You Go With Me”, as well as rare gems like “Backwoods Boy”. Turner closed out the set with the foot-stompin’ “Firecracker”.  Josh Turner has one of the most distinct voices in country music today, and also has the ability to bring his big hits to life live on stage.

Josh Turner exploded onto the country music scene in 2003. He inked a deal with MCA Records and released his first LP, Long Black Train. His sophomore effort, 2006’s Your Man, gave Turner his first two #1 singles. The album itself hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on Billboard Country Albums. Turner’s next two releases would also hit the Top 5 on the Billboard charts.
