“Why Don’t We Just Dance” is the debut single from Josh Turner’s forthcoming album entitled Haywire, to be released on November 10. The song will be available to radio stations across the country Wednesday, August 12 at NOON CT via PLAY MPE.“‘Why Don’t We Just Dance’ caught my ear from the very first listen,” says Turner. “It’s an up-tempo, traditional country song that has a very catchy melody with a lyric that poses the question ‘why don’t we just dance?’ and forget about all of the bad stuff going on the world and just concentrate on each other.” The single was written by hit songwriters Jim Beavers, Jonathan Singleton and Darrell Brown.
On August 25, the digital e-single will be available for purchase at iTunes and all other digital partners.
In addition, Turner is proud to announce that Ashley Poston is the first recipient of the Josh Turner Scholarship Fund. She is a 2009 graduate of Hannah-Pamplico High School in Hannah, SC. Turner wanted the first scholarship recipient to be a graduating senior from his alma mater because he knows the extent of the needs there. “Growing up in rural South Carolina, I attended a small school,” says Turner. “In fact, there were only 75 people in my graduating class. And that translated into ‘not a lot of opportunities’ when it came to music. My goal for this scholarship fund is to create opportunities for students who want to pursue an education within music or the arts. ”
