Posted by Sarah Norton on 06/29/2009

Country star Josh Turner will take the stage at the premiere of the Nashville Songwriters Association's “It All Begins with a Song” Performance Series on Wednesday, July 22, at the Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville.

“I was attending an event focused on intellectual property protection where Josh was passionately speaking about these issues. He was impressive and certainly understood the heart of NSAI’s mission. Josh continues his work by helping assist NSAI in launching this performance series,” said NSAI Executive Director Bart Herbison.

Turner, one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry, was recently inducted into Nashville’s Walk of Fame and his current project, Everything is Fine, was certified Gold in just four weeks.

“On behalf of all American songwriters, NSAI is extremely grateful to Josh for helping launch what will be a permanent series supporting the work we do. NSAI was founded as an advocacy organization for songwriters. In recent years the organization’s work has increased the value of and the respect for songwriters’ copyrights and helped secure the growth of future royalties,” said NSAI President and Grammy-nominated songwriter Steve Bogard.

Tickets for the event are on sale now and are available for purchase at as well as the Wildhorse Retail Store or by calling (615)902-8211.

General Admission tickets are $20, Reserved Seating tickets are $35 and there are a limited number of $75 tickets available that include a Meet & Greet with Turner. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the show beginning at 7:30 p.m.
