Josh Turner’s fifth studio album Punching Bag hit stores last Tuesday, June 12, debuting a No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart (across all genres). The critically-acclaimed release marks Josh’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… far from being a punching bag, this album contains enough musical muscle to throw a few punches of its own,” wrote Country Weekly.

Dallas Morning News added, “That deep, soulful, traditional country voice could transform even the most calculated radio ditties into resonating songs to live by.” Additionally, CBS said, “The album is an overall fantastic exposition of Josh’s talent and ability to excel in a variety of styles.”

Previously-announced upcoming television appearances include:
Wednesday, July 4 at TBD on PBS’s A Capitol Fourth
Wednesday, July 11 at 7 a.m. ET on ABC’s Good Morning America
