From a press release:

Multi-platinum MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner is one of country music’s most recognizable hit-makers, and he’s coming to Penn’s Peak in Jim Thorpe on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $37 for regular seating or $42 for premium seating, go on sale this Friday, Dec. 23 at 10 a.m. and will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets, the Penn’s Peak box office (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe), and Roadies Restaurant and Bar (325 Maury Rd., Jim Thorpe). Penn’s Peak box office and Roadies Restaurant ticket sales are walk-up only; no phone orders.

With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Josh Turner has sold more than 12 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music, and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. From his 2003 platinum-selling debut, “Long Black Train,” to his most recent 2012 Billboard No. 1 release, “Punching Bag,” Turner has garnered multiple Grammy, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner’s hits include “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Firecracker,” “Would You Go with Me,” “All Over Me,” and “Time Is Love,” the most played country song of 2012.

Turner added author to his list of accomplishments in 2014 with his first book, “Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood.” The Hannah, South Carolina native has been writing songs and performing since he was a young child and, in support of music education, he created the Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, realizing firsthand the importance of arts education in schools.

Turner is currently on the road in support of his latest radio single, “Hometown Girl,” which Rolling Stone Country notes, “pairs the South Carolina native’s unmistakable, country-to-the-core baritone with a modern, rollicking beat.”
