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.
