Josh Turner’s fifth studio album Punching Bag hit stores last Tuesday, June 12, and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart. The critically-acclaimed release marks Turner’s fifth career Top 10 Billboard album debut, and has been met with praise by music critics across the country.
“Turner steps into his own as a songwriter with eight finely-crafted contributions," wrote Country Weekly. "Far from being a punching bag, this album contains enough musical muscle to throw a few punches of its own."
Dallas Morning News added, “That deep, soulful, traditional country voice could transform even the most calculated radio ditties into resonating songs to live by."

Josh's upcoming television appearances include July 4th on PBS’s A Capitol Fourth and July 11th at 7am EST on ABC’s Good Morning America.
