Multi-Platinum-selling country singer Josh Turner's "I Serve A Savior" will release on Oct. 26, adding a new dimension to the Grammy nominee's already acclaimed career. The faith-based collection includes handpicked hymns, alongside brand-new originals and live recordings of some of Turner's most memorable hits, including "Me and God" and "Long Black Train."
Baring faith and family in his forthcoming gospel project, Turner's "I Serve A Savior" even includes a special song penned by his wife, Jennifer, and eldest son, Hampton, "The River (of Happiness)." The pair also sings on the track along with Turner's three other boys.
"It's an uplifting song," Turner said. "And having Jennifer and the boys singing on it drives that home."
"I Serve A Savior" is a landmark album from one of the pillars of the country music community. A dream come true for Turner, the gospel project is one that fans have been asking to hear for years. More than that, it reflects the heart of the artist and is a personal manifesto. 
"My faith is the most important thing to me," Turner said. "I want people to hear the sentiment and heart behind this record. I want them to feel the same inspiration that I felt. I want them to feel that and hopefully they'll make these songs a part of their life."
"Working on this project has definitely been a God-ordained blessing. I never would have thought I'd be doing this record this year, but God opened a door and I walked through it," Turner said. "I've seen many seemingly impossible things take place during the making of this record, and I've felt God's anointing over it."
In addition to the 12-track project, Turner is set to release a 90-minute live performance DVD of the new faith-based collection, filmed at Gaither Studios. The DVD will include a special interview of Turner with gospel legend Bill Gaither.
"Josh Turner is a gifted artist. We talked about his faith, his music, his wife and children, and about his gospel heritage he holds so dear," Gaither said. "It is a joy to see a young man with so much talent using his gifts with purpose and excellence."
The DVD, which features a performance by the Turner family, will also be edited to air as a one-hour television special hosted by Gaither. The special will air this fall on several networks across the U.S. and Canada. 
With his rich, deep voice and distinctive style, MCA Nashville recording artist Turner is one of country music's most recognizable hit-makers. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut "Long Black Train" to his 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, "Deep South," Turner has scored multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM Awards nominations and received six Inspirational Country Music Awards. As one of the youngest members inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, Turner has sold more than 8 million units, topped more than 1.5 billion in global streaming and populated radio with such memorable hits as "Hometown Girl," "Would You Go With Me," "Your Man," "Time Is Love," "Why Don't We Just Dance" and "Long Black Train."
Turner is one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. He has been an Opry member for over 10 years and he recently reveled in his 150th performance on the famed Opry circle.
