Josh Turner is a Hannah, South Carolina, native who has sold more than 4.5 million albums and garnered four No. 1 singles including "Your Man" and "Would You Go With Me." His No. 1 hit, "Why Don't We Just Dance," is currently 2010's most-played song on country radio. In 2010, Turner's fourth studio album, "Haywire," debuted at No. 5 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart.

His debut album was certified platinum for more than 1 million copies sold, and his sophomore album, "Your Man," was one of only four country albums to reach double-platinum status in 2006.

Six years after his Grand Ole Opry debut, he was inducted into the prestigious organization, becoming one of the youngest artists ever to receive the honor. He recorded a CMT special with his musical hero, Randy Travis, and has spent time writing songs with another one of his heroes, John Anderson.

"For me, it is icing on the cake," he says of his success. "My biggest goal in life when I was growing up was to find the right woman to marry and get a record deal. I've accomplished both of those things, so regardless of what happens beyond that, I'm happy."

"When I wake up in the morning, I think about writing and performing and singing country music. I'm happy I get to go out on the road making a living doing what I love to do and it's all because I chased my dream and never gave up."

Blender magazine says Josh "is a country Barry White. His burring voice can tease our sensuality in unlikely places." His rich baritone brings an undeniable sexuality to a love song, so it's no surprise that love songs have been among his most popular recordings.
