Josh Turner Opry Induction on GAC, Oct. 27

Josh Turner will be officially welcomed as a member of the Grand Ole Opry, Saturday night, Oct. 27, and fans can see the celebration on GAC’s Opry Live at 8 p.m. ET.

Josh made his Opry debut in 2001 and became an instant favorite with the audience after he performed his debut hit, “Long Black Train.” He was invited to join the Opry cast in late September. “My heart started racing and there were tears coming to my eyes,” Josh recalled. “When I saw all the people just standing up, the emotion just started flooding.” GAC will also present a one-hour documentary, Josh Turner: My Road to the Opry, at 7 p.m. ET on Oct. 27. The special, filmed in Nashville, on tour and in Josh’s hometown of Hannah, S.C., takes viewers behind the scenes for an intimate look at Josh’s life.
