Josh Turner to Headline Cumberland Heights Fundraiser

Josh Turner

Josh Turner will headline this year’s annual Concert for Cumberland Heights, an annual fundraiser supporting Cumberland Heights’ John Hiatt Fund for adolescent and young adult treatment. The concert is set for October 15th at 8 p.m. in Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, and tickets go on sale July 18th through the Ryman Auditorium box office and Ticketmaster. An accompanying auction will be held online July 18th – August 1st featuring specialty tickets and an autographed copy of Turner’s latest book Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood. Local band Striking Matches, an emerging talent made up of Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis, will open the show.

“The response we’ve received through the years from the Nashville music community is overwhelming. Contributions by artists like Josh have made the event one of the most successful fundraisers at the Ryman,” said Walt Quinn, chief marketing officer for Cumberland Heights. “We’re thrilled that Josh will be the headliner for the concert this year. He’s an A-list performer who is sure to attract a full house.”

“I’m looking forward to playing for Cumberland Heights to help them raise money so they can continue the great work that they do. Alcohol and drug abuse is damaging to the person experiencing it but it’s also detrimental to their family and friends,” said Turner.

The Concert for Cumberland Heights is always a sellout, and the historic Ryman Auditorium provides the perfect backdrop for its ongoing relationship with the music community. Cumberland Heights offers a music therapy program that includes workshops, performances and special visits from a range of music industry professionals.

The proceeds from the annual concert will support the John Hiatt Fund. Hiatt, an acclaimed singer-songwriter, participates in the event each year. Since Cumberland Heights established the concert fundraiser in 1996, it has raised nearly two million dollars for the Hiatt Fund, which supports adolescents and young adults, ages 14 – 24 and their families through the recovery process.

This year’s sponsors for the Concert for Cumberland Heights include Pilot and Flying J, H.G Hill Realty, the Haslam Family Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. James W. Perkins III and the Cal Turner Family Foundation.

Josh Turner Joins Smithsonian’s “The Star-Spangled Banner” Bicentennial Celebration

Josh Turner

Josh Turner joins the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History’s celebration of the 200th anniversary of the U.S. national anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and the flag that inspired it.

Turner has a special video of his version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” that will be featured on alongside 19 other renditions of the iconic song commissioned by the Smithsonian from artists like Patty Griffin, Valerie June, Phish, Train and more ranging from rock, R&B, bluegrass and country.

“‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ has become one of the most recognizable songs in our country’s history,” shares Turner. “It was inspired by an actual event where our country was attacked, prevailed and our flag was still waving in the aftermath. It outlines what our flag stands for and why that’s so important. It is always an honor to sing it.”

The online initiative accompanies a live Flag Day event in Washington, D.C. with musical performances culminating in Saturday’s 4 p.m. EDT national sing-a-long of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Josh Turner and performance equestrian and work wear company Ariat International renew their partnership for Turner’s The Roughstock and Rambler Tour. Ariat sponsored numerous dates on Turner’s 2013 Punching Bag Tour and both parties welcomed the opportunity to continue the relationship.

“Sponsoring last year’s tour was a perfect fit for us. The continuation of Ariat’s sponsorship of Josh’s 2014 tour is an exciting time and we are thrilled to go back out on the road with him,” says Ariat VP of Partnership Marketing Susan Alcala. “Josh has been an exceptional partner. His genuine passion for our products comes through naturally, and there is nothing better than an authentic endorsement.”

The tour, named for Turner’s two favorite styles of Ariat boots, the Roughstock and the Rambler, will cross North America and run through May 2015. Fans can expect to hear hits like “Your Man,” “Time Is Love,” “Would You Go With Me,” and more from the award-winning country star.

“We kicked off The Roughstock and Rambler Tour this past weekend and I feel blessed to have Ariat on the road with us for a second year in a row. I’ve shared this story a few times; however I came across a pair of Ariat boots for the first time at a western store in Montana several years ago. They were the most comfortable pair of boots I had ever put on and I fell in love with the brand,” shares Turner.
