Josh Turner To Compete in Crossfit Games

josh turner

Yesterday, country star Josh Turner traveled to Boston, Mass. for the opening round of this year’s Reebok CrossFit Games, and to explore what it means to Be More Human. Reebok’s globally integrated Be More Human campaign celebrates ordinary people who use sports and fitness in their quest for personal fulfillment and to serve the greater good.

Like so many, Turner struggles to maintain balance between work, family and personal time. Turner is a multi-platinum selling recording artist and celebrated musician, as well as a husband, a father of four young boys and a long-time health-conscience athlete. In a time when Turner was disillusioned with the fitness world and endless supplements promising unrealistic results, he had a chance encounter with four-time CrossFit Games Champion Rich Froning and discovered a whole new approach to fitness.

“I had heard about CrossFit from several fitness magazines and had just seen Rich on the cover of Muscle & Fitness,” shares Turner. “The very next day, I actually met him at the Nashville airport. He casually asked if I had ever tried CrossFit and I told him no, so he invited me out to his CrossFit Mayhem [Cookeville, Tenn.] and I took him up on it.” Turner remembers, “The first workout he put me through had me coughing my lungs up for hours, but it didn’t deter me.”

Turner and Froning formed a fast friendship and the country singer’s CrossFit journey began. Two years later, Turner is doing his first CrossFit competition claiming, “I never dreamed I would be competing in a CrossFit Open! I’m looking forward to it, but I’m scared to death because I’m far from being an expert at CrossFit.”

The opening night of the five-week worldwide competition showed Froning topping elite CrossFitter Mat Fraser in a head-to-head matchup for round one. In the crowd, Turner cheered Froning on and gathered inspiration from both of these world-class athletes. Turner will attempt his first competition workout today at Crossfit ONE at the Reebok headquarters in Boston.

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.
