DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 30, 2018) - Multi-platinum MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner will entertain fans at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday, July 7, with a pre-race concert prior to the 60th annual Coke Zero Sugar 400, a Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series event.
Turner, from Hannah, South Carolina, is considered a disciple of traditional country music and is one of the youngest members of the legendary Grand Ole Opry. From his 2003 platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his most recent 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations. Turner's hits include "Your Man," "Why Don't We Just Dance," "Firecracker," "Would You Go with Me," "All Over Me," and "Time Is Love," the most played country song of 2012. Turner released his acclaimed sixth studio album Deep South in March featuring the No. 1 hit single "Hometown Girl."
"Josh Turner continues our commitment to providing our fans with a complete entertainment experience on race days," said Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile. "Josh is a perfect fit for the Coke Zero Sugar 400 weekend. His music has deep traditional roots. The same can be said for our July race, which is a classic American sports tradition - and a perfect way to celebrate the Independence Day holiday weekend."
