SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The Sioux Empire Fair is proud to welcome country artist JOSH TURNER to the Campbell’s Main Stage on Monday, August 6, 2018. The show is FREE with paid fair admission! Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 – 12, and free for children ages 5 and under.
Multi-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 2017 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.
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, South Carolina 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.
The Sioux Empire Fair is proud to welcome JOSH TURNER to Sioux Falls. Turner joins the Campbell’s Main Stage series of Scotty McCreery, Hairball, Trace Adkins, Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias and Casey Donahew Band with High Valley and Craig Campbell.
