Josh Turner is an American country music singer-songwriter.

Josh Turner is a country artist who describes his music as South Carolina Lowcountry. His voice and musical style has often been compared to that of Johnny Cash’s. Hailing from the Hannah, South Carolina, Josh moved to Nashville in 1996 to study music at Belmont University. It was there that he met his current wife, Jennifer Ford, whom he married in 2003. During that same year, he released his debut album, Long Black Train. The title song “Long Black Train” peaked at #13 on Billboard’s US Country chart, staying on the charts for over 40 weeks.

Your Man, Josh’s 2nd album, was released early 2006. The first single was the title track, “Your Man,” which eventually climbed all the way to number 1. His big hit, though, was his second single, “Would You Go With Me.” This song solidified the album’s soon platinum status. His Christian-themed “Me And God” was released as a single on the christian radio circuit. It was a moderate success, and was eventually released as a single on the Country radio.

"Time Is Love," is the first single from Josh Turner’s fifth studio album. It finds him turning the phrase “time is money” on its head: (“Time is love / Gotta run / Love to hang longer but I got someone who waits / Waits for me and right now she’s where I need to be / Time is love, gotta run.”)

The song was released digitally on December 20, 2011 and for radio adds on January 8, 2012.

Although Josh Turner’s latest album bears the title of Punching Bag released June 12, 2012 the album as a whole is much more about family, love and faith. Still, the beauty of this song collection is Josh’s versatility. From sounds of blue grass to influences of Johnny Cash and George Jones, Turner manages to get a little bit of everything in this one. And he does it well.

Turner begins his latest album with an upbeat anthem called "Punching Bag." Turner actually wrote or co-wrote eight of the eleven cuts on "Punching Bag" at a cabin located on his property south of Nashville that has come to be a definite point of inspiration.
