Healing at the Ryman

Charlie’s first night at the Ryman. His little eyes were lit up seeing what I see when I play… Precious time. Time that has never meant more to me after the past few weeks. Therapeutic return in the Mother Church of Country Music. A tribute.

Josh Turner’s Crew Bus in Fatal Accident

I am absolutely touched beyond words at the outpouring of concern and love we have received from the crew bus’s accident.

Artists, sidemen, friends, people from every walk of life have reached out to us all – to share their shock and support.

Our crew are going through a horrible experience, and one of them didn’t make it. Horrible.

Families have been changed forever. It will be a long road to normalcy for most of our guys. Keep them in your thoughts. Donate to their families if you can. Most of all, love each other. Life is far too short to waste doing anything else.

Rest In Peace, David Turner.

Remain positive and be as strong as you’ve been. There will be better days ahead:

My wife is my rock, my sweet solace. Jessica, thank you for your counsel and your loving heart. Can’t wait to get home to you.

Thank you all so very much.
