JOSH TURNER SHARES THE SECRETS OF "MAN STUFF"
Since his first nomination for CMA’s Horizon Award in 2004, Josh Turner has combined Country Music stardom with the responsibilities of family life. His experiences as a son, brother, friend, husband and father unfold in his first book, “Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family, and Fatherhood.”
“I was raised in a strong Christian family in a tight-knit community in rural South Carolina,” Turner wrote in the book’s introduction. “I was taught essential life lessons, like the value of a dollar, what hard work feels like, and how important an education is. I was taught why being thoughtful, respectful, and considerate of others makes life more fulfilling, and why trusting God with your life’s decisions is wise. If all that sounds a little old-fashioned, well, that’s because it is. And I’m okay with that.
“In this book you’ll learn a little bit more about how God has shaped and continues to shape me,” he continued. “You’ll also learn about my wife, my boys, and the family I grew up in. I hope you see that the everyday small things in this life really do add up to matter a great deal in the long run. And I hope you’ll smile—even laugh—and gain a little wisdom along the way. Maybe even a lot.”
Jase Robertson, star of A&E’s hit television series Duck Dynasty, will provide the forward for Man Stuff. Last year, Turner sang a duet with Robertson’s wife Missy on the song “Why I Love Christmas” from the Platinum-certified holiday album, Duck The Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas.
“Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood” will release on April 29 by Thomas Nelson Publishers.
