Josh Turner At Grand Ole Opry
Josh Turner burst onto the country music scene with his breakthrough single “Long Black Train,” which showcases his rich baritone voice and spectacular songwriting skills. Since then, Turner, a South Carolina native, has released five studio albums, and all but one of his singles have made the Top 40 on Billboard's country charts. Turner sang bass and baritone in church choirs while he was growing up. His Christian faith is a large influence on his songwriting, which has led to success in both mainstream country and contemporary Christian music. Turner's debut performance at the Grand Ole Opry in 2001 was also the debut of “Long Black Train.” Turner was virtually unknown at the time of that performance, but he received a standing ovation and sang an encore.
