Josh Turner is celebrating another milestone and it’s a big one.

The “Hometown Girl” singer performed for the 150th time Friday (6/9) on the Grand Ole Opry, a fact he wasn’t made aware of shortly before the show. “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,” he reported before taking the stage, according to his publicist. “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.”

Josh has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 10 years. He performed his platinum-selling 2006 No. 1 “Would You Go With Me” during his latest appearance, his recent No. 1 “Hometown Girl” and his new single “All About You.” Check out a list of upcoming tour dates here.
