A native of Hannah, South Carolina, country crooner Josh Turner burst onto the scene in 2003 with the powerful "Long Black Train," a song he'd written after listening to a Hank Williams box set. Sounding like a gospel-blues tune from the '40s -- and featuring Turner's deep, rich baritone at the forefront -- "Long Black Train" wrestled with the grand themes of temptation, salvation, death and redemption. It also earned Turner national media attention, peaking at No. 13 on the country charts and paving the way for a full album, Long Black Train, which was released by MCA in 2003. The album went platinum, paving the way for a string of successful hits that would eventually earn Turner a coveted membership in the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 30.
A second release, Your Man, followed in 2006 and peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The title track topped the country charts (and experienced an unexpected revival in 2011, when American Idol champion Scotty McCreery performed it during his audition), as did the follow-up single "Would You Go with Me." The impressive Everything Is Fine appeared in 2007, again from MCA Nashville. Turner issued the 2010 release of his fourth album, Haywire, with its first two singles as its opening cuts: "Why Don't We Just Dance" and "I Wouldn't Be a Man."
Turner's fifth studio album, Punching Bag, was released via MCA Nashville in 2012 and preceded by the single "Time Is Love." The song reached No. 2 but finished the year as the No. 1 country song of 2012 according to Billboard. Also in 2012, Turner released Live Across America, with 12 of his songs recorded in concert in different cities.
