Josh Turner Fulfills Dream With New Project, ‘I Serve A Savior’

Josh Turner is releasing a longtime passion project, I Serve A Savior, on Oct. 26. The faith-based collection features hand-picked hymns, a few brand new originals, and live recordings of some of Turner’s most memorable hits including “Me and God” and “Long Black Train.”

The gospel project also includes a special song penned by Turner’s wife, Jennifer, and eldest son, Hampton, “The River (of Happiness)” featuring backing vocals by Jennifer and all four of Turner’s sons. “It’s an uplifting song,” said Turner. “And having Jennifer and the boys singing on it drives that home.”     

“My faith is the most important thing to me,” said Turner. “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. 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 will 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 and will also be edited into a one-hour TV special hosted by Gaither which will air this fall on several networks across the U.S. and Canada.
