Josh Turner Celebrates Surpassing 100 Million Views, Releases 15th Anniversary Mini Documentary
Last week, multi-Platinum-selling country artist Josh Turner and his wife Jennifer were surprised by their sons after learning the news that Turner’s official music video “Your Man” surpassed 100 million views.
The video was the first that the married couple filmed together, and it comes on the heels of the country star’s June release of the Your Man Deluxe Edition. The deluxe edition celebrates 15 years of Turner’s iconic double Platinum-selling Your Man album, featuring all 11 original tracks including collaborations with country icons John Anderson, Dr. Ralph Stanley, and Diamond Rio’s Marty Roe, Gene Johnson, and Dana Williams, plus live versions of the title track “Your Man,” fan favorite “Me and God,” and multi-week No. 1 hit “Would You Go With Me.”
In celebration of the album’s anniversary, Turner has released a mini documentary Josh Turner Your Man 15th Anniversary which features Chris Stapleton, Scotty McCreery and wife Jennifer.
