Josh Turner

Josh Turner added to Clay County Fair Grandstand lineup

The Clay County Fair announces Josh Turner with special guest Dillon Carmichael as part of the SRG Concert Series in the Sleep Number Grandstand at the 2020 Clay County Fair on Thursday, September 17 at 7:30 p.m.

With his rich, deep voice and distinctive style, Josh Turner is one of country music’s most recognizable hit-makers. From his 2003 Platinum-selling debut Long Black Train to his 2017 Billboard No. 1 release, Deep South, Turner has scored multiple GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM Awards nominations and received six Inspirational Country Music Awards. As one of the youngest members inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, Turner has sold more than 8 million units and populated radio with such memorable hits as “Hometown Girl,” “Would You Go With Me,” “Your Man,” “Time Is Love,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “Long Black Train.”

Growing up in the small town of Burgin, KY, Dillon Carmichael absorbed the musical life through osmosis: his father and uncles performed in a Southern Gospel Quartet, his mother sang all over the eastern part of the state, and his uncles (John Michael and Eddie Montgomery) both enjoyed massive chart success. The New York Times compared Carmichael to Randy Travis and said his rich baritone voice “moves with the heft and certainty of a tractor-trailer,” while NPR praised his “deep holler,” and Parade raved that “Carmichael defines pure country.”

CAIM Creative Co. announces evening of music with Catherine Glackin Aug. 30 at Arts on Grand

Catherine Glackin is beginning her second year in pursuing a flute performance and music education degree at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music. As a Bienen School student, she performs in large bands and orchestras, as well as chamber ensembles which include: flute quartets, woodwind quintets, flute-viola-harp trios, and more. While her studies lead to countless hours in the practice room, they also present performance opportunities and professional training in preparation for a career as a classical musician and educator. Catherine will be accompanied by local pianist, Christina Pierce.  Christina is a 1993 Spencer graduate with a music degree from Wartburg College.  Christina has been accompanying Catherine for many years as well as many other local performers. 

Join CAIM Creative Co. in welcoming Catherine Glackin back to Spencer for a recital on August 30 as she shares her tremendous talents and love of music.
