Park City Institute presents Country Star Josh Turner

Park City Institute presents Country Star Josh TurnerCountry star Josh Turner brings his deep baritone voice and high-energy performance style, to close out the summer season at the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series, on the Deer Valley Resort stage, Sunday, September 3 at 7pm.

"Josh Turner's distinctive sound and songwriting style are country-music staples. His songs tell the stories we all want to hear," said PCI Executive Director Teri Orr. "This Labor Day Weekend show is as All-American as you can get."

Turner's sixth studio album Deep South debuted in March, with a #1 spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, and the single "Hometown Girl," also reached #1.

"I've lived a lot of life since the release of my last album (Punching Bag) and I've learned a lot during the making of this album," Turner said. "I have grown as a writer and as an artist. It's been cool to see this culmination of life and lessons and age boiled down into this project and I am really proud of Deep South."

Rolling Stone says that Turner, with his "river deep baritone," delivers an "eagerly awaited album from a country purist." PEOPLE Magazine says the "Nashville veteran flaunts his deep bass" on Deep South and that the album is "an ode to down-home staples, from finding that perfect love on 'Hometown Girl' to savoring the laid-back life on the title track."

Turner is one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Since his 2003 platinum-selling debut Long Black Train, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner's hits include "Your Man," "Why Don't We Just Dance," "Firecracker," "Would You Go with Me," "All Over Me," and "Time Is Love." Born in Hannah, South Carolina, Turner began songwriting and performing as a young child.

As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools. He created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music.

The two-time Grammy nominee, known for his showmanship, will showcase hits like "Why Don't We Just Dance," "All Over Me," and "Hometown Girl," for an unforgettable evening.
