Turning up the Baby Blues: Josh Turner and wife Jennifer just announced this week they are expecting baby number 4! And this one will also be a boy, just like the other 3.  His new book, "Man Stuff" is out in stores.  You can catch him over in Bowling Green, KY on August 29th & Richmond later this fall.  Josh Turner will also be participating in a book signing at the Country Music Hall of Fame and have a Fan Club Party during CMA Music Fest in Nashville.  You can purchase the book by clicking on the photo below.
