LIMA — Nashville country music artist Josh Turner will be at Veterans Memorial Civic Center Thursday night.
Turner is one of country music’s hit-makers. He has sold more than 12.5 million units and is one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry.
Some of Turner’s hits include “Long Black Train,” “Your Man,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “Time Is Love,” which was the most played country song in 2012. In addition to singing, he published his first book, “Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood” in 2014.
Turner was brought to Lima by the Civic Center Foundation.
“I think we have a very diverse audience. Country music is one of those genres that is definitely a popular one, so we like to bring in a talented artist that we believe can fit this area well. Josh Turner has been in Lima before and has always been well received. He’s a very talented musician, and we’re happy to have him,” said Abe Ambroza, CEO of Veterans Memorial Civic Center. “Tickets are going pretty well for him.”
