Josh Turner to Perform at Wind Creek Wetumpka
Wetumpka, AL – (10/17/2022) Grammy nominated artist Josh Turner will take the Wind Creek Casino & Hotel (WCW) Entertainment Center stage for his King Size Manger holiday tour on Saturday, December 10, 2022 at 8pm. Tickets are available for purchase at ticketmaster.com and the Essentials Gift Shop, located inside Wind Creek Wetumpka.
Josh Turner's most treasured childhood holiday memories are of listening to Randy Travis' "An Old Time Christmas," as it was the soundtrack to the holiday season in his Hannah, South Carolina home. When Turner set out to record his first Christmas album "King Size Manger," Travis' country Christmas collection was his guidepost. He planned to create a timeless country Christmas album he could imagine his family's neighbors listening to in South Carolina.
Turner's "King Size Manger" is his dream realized–and then some. "King Size Manger" is a collection of traditional country versions of classic Christmas songs with some original tunes as well as some Hawaiian, bluegrass and swing sprinkled into the mix. Turner wrote three of the four original songs and arranged five tracks on the 11-song album.
His rich, distinct baritone wraps around each song like a cozy blanket on a snowy morning. Holiday classics including "The First Nowell" (featuring the song’s traditional spelling) and "Silent Night, Holy Night" become even more nostalgic and the originals "King Size Manger," "What He's Given Me," "Soldier's Gift" and "Mele Kalikimaka My 'Ohana" adopt the feel of time-honored Christmas traditions.
Christmas looks a bit different for Turner these days than it did when he was a child. He's focused on building traditions with his own family, and he's excited to add his album "King Size Manger" into their Christmas music mix. He won't be the only one. Turner created an album of instant Christmas classics for country music fans who will undoubtedly spin his collection along with the genre's most beloved holiday tracks. It will be a toe-tapping Merry Christmas, indeed.
