He has 15 studio albums, 12 compilation albums and 67 singles. 12 of those albums reached number 1 on Billboard Country albums chart!

Kelly Clarkson warns fans. She’s the nicest person, but she has limits… Don’t kiss her! She doesn’t know where your mouths have been, so that means no kiss on the lips or cheeks. She wrote on twitter “spread the word. I don’t like being kissed on my face when you meet me. Ever. Male or female. I ain’t European y’all. I didn’t grow up doing that. I don’t like it.” Then she hashtagged #MyPSAfortheday. She loved hugs, fist bumps, handshakes and high fives though!
More news is coming out about the bus crash that Josh Turner’s road crew was involved in two nights ago in California. Yesterday we found out that one person died and 7 were injured. The man who died in the crash was 64 year old David Turner (no relation to Josh). He was his sound man and had been working with Josh for 12 years. Before that he was employed by several other country artists like Tammy Wynette, Hank Williams Jr. Conway Twitty and Patty Loveless.. The California Highway Patrol has ruled out drugs or alcohol but a witness says that the bus was going 60-65mph (which as only about 10mpg faster than the speed limit) and that when the bus went off the road. It’s possible that it dropped 50-80 feet off a cliff. Police are impounding the vehicle to investigate the possible causes of the crash. All remaining Josh Turner shows in September have been rescheduled for a later date.
