Josh Turner Gives First Glimpse of Samuel Hawke

Josh Turner is finally giving the world a glimpse at adorable baby Samuel Hawke, who was welcomed into the world in September. He shared the adorable family photos with People Country.

Samuel is the fourth son for Josh and wife Jennifer, and with each one he admits that he learns something.

“When we were still at the hospital right after we had Hampton, I remember I went out the day we were supposed to go home to go put the car seat into the car,” recalls Turner. “And this particular car seat was so complicated and difficult. I spent such a long time putting this car seat in the car. I just remember I was about to shoot myself because this thing took a mechanical engineer to put it in!”

And now? “Oh, I’ve gotten a lot better since then,” he shares. “Now I’m fast as a Nascar pit crew!”

He also says he’s learning to cherish the fleeting stages of infancy.

“Having an infant, they literally change overnight. People who don’t have children don’t understand that,” he says. “They grow so fast. So every moment that I’m with him, I’m just cherishing each and every second. I’ve watched my other three grow out of that baby phase so fast, so I’m holding on to this.”

Josh Turner Releases New Music Video for “Lay Low”

Josh Turner

This week  Josh Turner released the brand new video for his latest single, “Lay Low.” Award-winning director Trey Fanjoy and Turner shot the music video at a 200-year-old cabin in Rock Island, Tenn. and perfectly captured the daydream mood of “Lay Low.”

Written by Ross Copperman, Tony Martin and Mark Nesler, “Lay Low” taps into a familiar sentiment about unplugging from the daily grind and reconnecting with each other.

I wanna drive until my cell phone
Runs out of range and every bar is gone
Cut through the woods another hundred miles
And disappear for a while

[Chorus:]
I wanna hear raindrops fallin’ down on an old tin roof
I wanna find a front porch rail and prop up my travelin’ boots
See your silhouette in that firelight
Feel your body lyin’ next to mine
Spend a few days together alone
And just lay low

I wanna end up nowhere on a map
A little cabin sittin’ so far back
Out in the country
Just the moon and stars
Are gonna know where we are

[Chorus]

Just lay low, slow it down
Girl, let’s go and get outta town
I wanna hear raindrops fallin’ down

[Chorus]

Just lay low

“Lay Low” is the first single off Turner’s upcoming 2015 album release on MCA Nashville. For more information, music and tour dates, please visit www.JoshTurner.com.

Josh Turner Brings ‘Man Stuff’ to Cracker Barrel

Josh-Turner

Josh Turner’s first book, Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood, is now available at all 633 Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations. The fan-favorite book features a variety of stories and anecdotes from Turner’s life, often revealing a lesson or piece of advice that the singer/songwriter learned. Focusing on his Christian faith, each of the chapters begins with a scripture verse that relates to the stories being told. As a husband, son, brother, friend, and father of four boys, Turner has had a multitude of experiences which he shares with the readers.

Originally released in April, Man Stuff is published by Thomas Nelson, an imprint of Harper Collins Christian Publishing, and features a forward written by Turner’s friend and “Duck Dynasty” star, Jase Robertson.

“I was thrilled to hear about Cracker Barrel® wanting to carry Man Stuff,” said Turner. “We’ve had a lot of fun over the past several years. I partnered with Cracker Barrel for the release of my two live albums and they’ve come out on the road with me as my tour sponsor a couple of times. They are good friends and great partners and I am excited to have another project with them.”

Turner and Cracker Barrel have built a strong relationship over the years. In 2007, his Live at the Ryman CD was released through the Cracker Barrel exclusive music program. Five years later, Cracker Barrel exclusively released his Live Across America CD (featuring 12 songs recorded at 12 different concerts) and sponsored his 2012 tour.
Turner recently released his brand new song “Lay Low” to country radio. “Lay Low” is the lead single off his upcoming sixth studio album due out in early 2015 on MCA Records.
