Top Ten With Josh Turner
I’m inspired by: real life and real people.
I realized I wanted to play music when: I sang “Diggin’ Up Bones” (by Randy Travis) in front of a crowd at age 13.
Four songs you might find on my iPod: Gonna Fly Now by Bill Conti, Charlene by Anthony Hamilton, If I Had a Boat by Lyle Lovett, The Man Comes Around.by Johnny Cash
One word I would use to describe myself: driven.
The best part of being a musician is: it’s not a normal job.
Right now, I’m most excited about: the release of my Punching Bag record.
Something most people don’t know about me is: that I’m into bodybuilding.
One of my happiest moments was: getting married
My music is: South Carolina Low Country.
In ten years, I see myself: ten years older.
