JOSH TURNER CELEBRATES IN NASHVILLE

Josh Turner celebrated his No. 1 single, “Would You Go With Me,” his platinum album Your Man, plus the birth of his first child at a Nashville industry party, Oct. 10.

Josh’s son Hampton Otis, born Friday, Oct. 6, in Nashville, was foremost on his mind. “He was born about eight days early. He and his mom are doing great,” Josh told Country Weekly. Josh added that a combination of “hard work and finding great songs” were the keys to his success. During the party, Josh invited his parents, who traveled from their home in South Carolina, to the stage. “I think I’ll be able to get through this,” he joked softly to the crowd as he saw his teary-eyed mom. “I had a gift, and I certainly did not want to use it. I had such stage fright. But they were the ones who pushed me and encouraged me.”
