Turner, a Hannah, S.C., native, has sold more than 5 million albums and garnered numerous multi-week number one hits including "Your Man," "Would You Go With Me," "Why Don't We Just Dance," and "All Over Me." His debut album, Long Black Train, was certified platinum for more than 1 million copies sold, and his sophomore album, Your Man, was one of four country albums to reach double-platinum status in 2006.
The debut single from his current album Haywire, "Why Don't We Just Dance," a four-week number one hit, was the most-played song at country radio in 2010, according to Mediabase, and was third on Billboard's year-end Hot Country Songs list, followed immediately by "All Over Me" at number four. "Why Don't We Just Dance" took home an American Country Award for Male Single of the Year in December 2010.
Turner's new single, "Time is Love" from his upcoming yet-to-be titled fifth studio album was recently released to radio and is now available on iTunes.
"I don't ever want to take anything for granted," Turner said. "I've learned from certain people that it takes a lot of hard work, passion and love for what you do to have longevity in this career."
The Cattaraugus County Fair will be held from July 30 through Aug. 5. For more information, visit www.cattarauguscofair.com.
