Multi-platinum-selling country artist Josh Turner exclusively premiered the live performance video for “I Saw The Light” on parade.com on Thursday (October 4th). The track, featured on his highly anticipated album, I Serve A Savior, boasts Turner’s rich, distinctive baritone. With an inventive arrangement, the South Carolina native makes the well-known hymn uniquely his own.
Filmed live at Gaither Studios, Turner’s performance of “I Saw The Light” can be found on the complimenting 90-minute live performance DVD set to release in addition to the 12-track studio project. The DVD will feature a special interview of Turner with gospel legend Bill Gaither, a performance by the Turner family and more. The DVD will also be edited to air as a one-hour television special hosted by Bill Gaither and will air this fall on numerous networks across the U.S. and Canada.
“This is a Hank Williams song that I’ve always loved and I’m proud to have it on this record,” Turner exclusively shared with Parade.com. “I hope fans love the new arrangement of it!”
I Serve A Savior is now available for pre-order with two instant grat tracks ahead of its Oct. 26 unveiling. Turner has now released two songs from the anticipated project, “I Serve A Savior” and his latest “I Saw The Light,” featuring gospel’s Sonya Isaacs. Adding a new dimension to the GRAMMY® nominee’s already acclaimed career, the faith-based collection includes hand-picked hymns, alongside brand-new originals and live recordings of some of Turner’s most memorable hits including “Me and God” and “Long Black Train.”
Hey Scotty, thanks for getting the word out about my new record. Stay safe on the road! https://t.co/Lajo8do8xa

With his newest project, I Serve A Savior, Turner adds an exciting new dimension to his already acclaimed career.
I Serve A Savior is a thoughtful gospel collection that finds Turner’s rich, distinctive baritone paired with timeless classics including “Amazing Grace,” “How Great Thou Art” and “Great Is Your Faithfulness,” as well as introducing originals including the title track, “I Serve A Savior,” and “The River (of Happiness),” written by his wife, Jennifer, and their eldest son, Hampton.
Turner is a disciple of traditional country music, a mentor to up-and-coming artists, and one of the youngest members of the Grand Ole Opry. Turner has been an Opry member for over 10 years and he recently reveled in his 150th performance on the famed Opry circle.
The Hannah, S.C. native has been songwriting and performing since he was a child, and in support of music education, he created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. As a high school student, Turner had very little access to music education, therefore realizes first-hand the importance of arts education in schools.
