Tickets went on sale at 10 am on Thursday, December 12th, and are available for purchase at ticketmaster.com, the Stanley Theatre box office, or by calling 315-724-4000. All proceeds from the show will benefit The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter.
“We’re excited to bring such a well-known and entertainer to our area, which is rife with country music fans,” said Adrienne Carbone, Friends of The Arc Foundation Board President. “Not only will fans be treated to a fantastic show at a historic venue, but they’re also helping support a deep-rooted organization that changes lives.”
Karen Korotzer, Chief Executive Officer at The Arc, Oneida-Lewis, added, “it was essential for us to find an entertainer who aligns with the mission and core values of The Arc. Josh Turner is that and more, and we can’t wait to bring a one of a kind show to the Mohawk Valley.”
With a rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Turner has sold more than 12.5 million units, is a disciple of traditional country music, and one of the youngest members of the esteemed Grand Ole Opry. From his 2003 platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his most recent 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, 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,” the most played country song of 2012.
Turner released his sixth studio album Deep South in March featuring the #1 hit single “Hometown Girl.” Rolling Stone declares 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.”
