Born and raised in Hannah, SC, Josh Turner grew up singing gospel music in church, singing both the bass and baritone. While in high school, Turner formed his own gospel group, Thankful Hearts. In 1996, Turner started having reoccurring voice problems. The problems were so severe that Turner traveled to Nashville to visit the Vanderbilt Voice Clinic, where he was advised by doctors to give his voice immediate rest after finding a lesion on one of his vocal chords; doctors at Vanderbilt prescribed one years rest for Turner’s voice. While recovering, Turner learned some classic voice techniques, learning to take care of his voice and avoid further problems.

After graduating high school, Turner headed off to Francis Marion University, fully recovered from his voice problems. After a couple years at FMU, he transferred to Nashville’s legendary Belmont University, which sent more artists to country music than kids has send letter to Santa. While still at Belmont University, Turner would write what would become his debut single and signature song, a tune reflecting his religious strength.

Turner would debut the single “Long Black Train” at the Grand Ole Opry on Dec 21st, 2001, before being offered a record deal. In 2002, based on his Opry debut and the strength of the song, Turner signed with MCA Nashville, the song serving as the title track from his debut album, released in October of 2003. The song would be Turner’s first top-20 hit, peaking at #13. The singer would churn out 4 more albums for MCA Nashville, before taking a break after his 2012 Punching Bag tour. Turner decided to take time off from recording and touring to spent time with his wife Jennifer (who he met while at Belmont University) and his four sons, Hampton, Colby, Marion, and Samuel.
