Josh Turner Has Officially Played the Opry 150 Times

Impressive isn’t even the word to describe this honor.

Josh Turner celebrated an impressive career milestone on Friday night (June 9) — he has officially performed at the Grand Ole Opry 150 times!

Joined by some very special friends and Opry legends, The Oak Ridge Boys welcomed Turner to the stage while Charley Pride and Randy Travis watched the momentous occasion from the wings.

“I’ve been playing the Opry for 16 years and had honestly lost count of how many times I’ve played until just recently when they told me this will be my 150th performance,” Turner shared prior to going onstage.

During the special evening, Turner performed his No. 1 hit “Hometown Girl,” his platinum-selling No. 1 “Would You Go With Me,” plus his brand new single “All About You.” He also received his Opry member award commemorating the Opry’s 90th Anniversary and this fall, the multi-platinum-selling star celebrates his own 10th anniversary of being a member of the famed institution.

“It’s surreal to think of 150 appearances at the Opry because there have been performances at the Ryman and performances at the Opry House – I even performed a couple of times at Municipal Auditorium during the flood of 2010. The people I’ve come to know through the Grand Ole Opry and the fans I’ve been able to reach, it’s just been an incredible experience,” he continued.
