Multi-platinum selling country artist, Josh Turner, will shake up his daily routine when he returns to co-host The Today Show with Hoda Kotb on Monday, March 19 at 10 a.m. EDT. Celebrating a new radio single, "Time Is Love" — currently No. 23 on the Country Billboard chart this week and one of his fastest-rising singles to-date — while also anticipating his forthcoming summer album release, Punching Bag, Turner will talk about his new music, songwriting, touring, family and more to Today audiences nationwide. "I’m looking forward to co-hosting again with my beautiful Egyptian goddess!" says Turner. "It’s always a blast for me."
Also on Monday, Great American Country (GAC) will host the world premiere of Turner’s highly-anticipated music video, "Time Is Love," which will air throughout the day beginning at 10 a.m. EDT / 9 a.m. CDT.
After his appearance on Today, fans can find Turner out on the road performing dates in cities including Austin, TX (March 21), Bossier City, LA (March 23), Fort Worth, TX (March 24), and more.
On Tuesday, March 20, the “Today” show gets a little more country as hit singer/songwriter Lee Brice joins Hoda Kotb to co-host the fourth hour of the top-rated national morning show. Brice will fill in for Kathie Lee Gifford who is taking the week off.
In April 2011, Hoda Kotb selected Lee Brice’s hit single and Billboard’s Most Played Song of 2010, “Love Like Crazy,” for her “iHoda Playlist.” Now, close to a year later, she has invited the singer to join her and perform his new Top 10 smash, “A Woman Like You,” live in studio. Brice commented on the invitation, “I’m really excited to co-host with Hoda. I love that she loves country music and shares it with the world on her ‘iHoda Playlist.’ Buckle up Hoda, we’re gonna have some fun!”
Brice’s “Today” debut kicks off a soon-to-be busy schedule for the award-nominated singer. On April 1, Brice will compete in the “Song of the Year” category at the ACM Awards for co-writing Eli Young Band’s first #1 single, “Crazy Girl.” Then, on April 24, his much-anticipated sophomore album, Hard 2 Love, hits the streets with a fury of media appearances. “A Woman Like You” is the lead release from the album and is currently at #10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and is selling over 40,000 single downloads weekly.
Looking forward to country coming to NBC’s Today Show! Back with more later!
