Country music star Josh Turner will debut his latest Universal Music Nashville release, “Punching Bag,” and perform live on HSN on May 25 at 9 p.m., the network said Tuesday.
During “HSN LIVE Presents Josh Turner sponsored by Cricket,” Turner will perform tracks from “Punching Bag,” including his latest hit “Time Is Love” and other chart-toppers such as “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “Your Man.”
“It’s always exciting for me to share new music early with my fans, so I can’t wait to perform live on HSN during the HSN LIVE concert series,” Turner said in a canned statement. “I love experiencing their reactions to the new songs.”
HSN customers will have the opportunity to pre-order an exclusive two-disc bundle ($19.95, free S&H) on HSN.com that includes Turner’s new release and the “ICON Series: The Best of Josh Turner,” which includes 11 of his No. 1 hits, such as “Long Black Train” and “Would you go with me”.
“HSN’s robust entertainment integration strategy has transformed the company into one of today’s hottest outlets for music artists to launch their new releases,” said Andy Sheldon, HSN’s EVP of Television, Live Events and Creative. “The recent HSN LIVE debut of Lionel Richie’s ‘Tuskegee’ was a brilliant success and we are excited to once again partner with the talented team at Universal Music Nashville to welcome Josh to the HSN LIVE roster as part of our Americana event.”
Following his HSN premiere, Turner will interact with HSN’s Facebook fans during a live post-concert chat.
“HSN is a great platform to promote Josh Turner and his upcoming album ‘Punching Bag,'” said Tom Lord, vice president of marketing for UMG Nashville. “This live concert event is a unique primetime opportunity to showcase Josh as one of country music’s biggest hit makers as well as our genre’s most recognizable and distinctive voice.”
