Josh Turner, a multi-platinum country music artist and author of "Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood", spoke with WPDE NewsChannel 15 Saturday morning during his book signing at The Market Common in Myrtle Beach.
Turner said when he was first approached about writing a book the thought was intimidating, but after wrapping his head around it, he said he realized what kind of opportunity it would bring. He says he's learned a lot, and fans and readers have been very supportive.
The book is a collection of about 90 stories from Josh Turner's life and career.
"It's entertaining, it's funny, there's some light-hearted stuff in there, there's some deep, dark kind of stuff in there, but each and every story has a lesson. So my hope for the reader is to take something away from the book and grow from it, learn from it, and maybe even laugh a little bit." Turner said.
When WPDE asked Turner, who's from Hannah, South Carolina, what he misses most about the state, he said the "weather and water."
Turner performs Saturday night at the Alabama Theatre in Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach.
When asked if he switches up his concert for when he comes back to perform in his home state, he responded: "I just try to keep it consistent and keep it about the music and let them see the real me."
Turner said when he's not on the road he likes to spend time outdoors hunting and fishing.
When asked to finish the sentence "Josh Turner is..." he responded "multifaceted".
