(PCM) Recently, country music superstar Josh Turner brought his down-home melodies to the Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA. Turner is in the midst of his Roughstock and Rambler Tour in support of his latest album, Punching Bag.

Josh hit the stage and pulled no punches, playing a sweet 16-song set that included big hits like “Your Man”, “Punching Bag”, “Time Is Love”, “Haywire”, and “Would You Go With Me”, as well as rare gems like “Backwoods Boy”. Turner closed out the set with the foot-stompin’ “Firecracker”. Josh Turner has one of the most distinct voices in country music today, and also has the ability to bring his big hits to life live on stage.

Josh Turner exploded onto the country music scene in 2003. He inked a deal with MCA Records and released his first LP, Long Black Train. His sophomore effort, 2006’s Your Man, gave Turner his first two #1 singles. The album itself hit #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on Billboard Country Albums. Turner’s next two releases would also hit the Top 5 on the Billboard charts. His latest effort, 2012’s Punching Bag, debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on Billboard Country Albums.

The album’s lead single “Time Is Love” was the top country song of the year. Turner is reportedly working on new music for a follow-up, and he recently released his first book Man Stuff via HarperCollins Publishing. Throughout his career, Turner has been nominated for two Grammy Awards and seven CMA Awards.

(PCM) South African rockers, Kongos, put on an incredible performance during their recent appearance at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE.

The band, which consists of four brothers Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Daniel Kongos, fill the stage with a true sense of passion and intoxicating energy. Despite their early set time, kicking off the Firefly Main Stage, they were the ideal wake-up call to shake things up and get everyone moving at the festival.
