Josh Turner


With his rich, deep voice and distinctive style, MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner is one of country music’s most recognizable hit-makers. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has scored multiple GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM Awards nominations and received six Inspirational Country Music Awards. As one of the youngest members inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, Turner has sold more than 8 million units, topped more than 1.5 billion in global streaming and populated radio with such memorable hits as “Hometown Girl,” “Would You Go With Me,” “Your Man,” “Time Is Love,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “Long Black Train.”

With his newest project, Serve A Savior, which debuted at No. 1 atop the Nielsen’s Country Albums chart and No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Christian Albums Chart, Turner adds an exciting new dimension to his already acclaimed career. Serve A Savior is a thoughtful gospel collection that finds Turner’s rich, distinctive baritone paired with timeless classics including “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art” and “Great Is Your Faithfulness,” as well as introducing originals including the title track, “Serve A Savior,” and “The River (of Happiness),” written by his wife, Jennifer, and their eldest son, Hampton. In addition to the 12- track studio project, Turner has released a complementing 90-minute live performance DVD featuring a special interview of Turner with gospel legend Bill Gaither, a performance with Turner alongside his wife Jennifer and their four sons, and more. The DVD has been edited to air as a one-hour television special hosted by Bill Gaither, which will air on numerous networks across the U.S. and Canada.

Turner 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. Turner has been an Opry member for over 10 years and he recently reveled in his 150th performance on the famed Opry circle.

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.

Influenced by artists such as the Dixie Chicks and Dolly Parton, Emily Ann aims to take her love for organic, vintage country and make it fresh and new. She was raised on mountain music and bluegrass, so her love for that organic sound shines in her new country releases and sets her apart. After learning how to play guitar in the 6th grade, she began singing all over her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee. In 2015, she placed as the Runner-Up on NBC’s The Voice. Emily Ann then began cowriting and recording her own music in Nashville while playing shows at venues across the country. After working for three years on her music, in September of 2018 she made her debut release of her first original song, “Stuck On Me + You” and then followed that with another passionate original, “I’ve Got Forever”. 

Emily Ann is determined to continue creating music that makes an impact in the lives of those who listen. Her upcoming single, “Someday Dream”, has a message of taking hold of your biggest dreams and chasing them in every moment. Emily Ann wants her listeners to know that if she is able to live out her dreams they can to. “Someday Dream” is scheduled to release April 19th.

Emily Ann also has a passion for makeup and fashion and loves the outlet it gives her to be creative. She is a collector of cowboy boots and is always on the hunt to find a new unique pair to add to her collection. She also loves baking and decorating treats for people to enjoy and dreams of having her own cookbook one day to share her favorite recipes with others.
