Josh Turner with the "other" Josh Turner at homecoming in NC


JOSH TURNER SURPRISES AMERICAN IDOL FINALIST SCOTTY MCCREERY
AT HIS HOMETOWN CELEBRATION IN GARNER, NORTH CAROLINA


Nashville, TN – Josh Turner traveled to Scotty McCreery’s hometown of Garner, N.C., on Saturday to surprise the American Idol finalist at his hometown celebration in front of over 30,000 fans. McCreery performed a few songs for the thousands of screaming fans before he sang his self-proclaimed “theme song,” “Your Man”.

Just as he was getting started, Turner walked on to the stage, completely shocking the American Idol finalist. A stunned McCreery and Turner performed “Your Man” followed by what McCreery says is his “favorite song of all time” - “Long Black Train.”

“I think he was surprised,” laughs Josh Turner. “He didn’t see me until we were almost face-to-face. I think I almost gave him a heart attack.”

Seventeen-year-old Scotty McCreery chose Josh Turner’s No. 1 hit “Your Man” to be his ticket to Hollywood during the initial American Idol auditions in Milwaukee, WI. Since then, the deep-voiced Scotty, a student at Garner High School in Garner, N.C., has performed two of Turner’s songs on the show, including "Long Black Train."

This episode of American Idol will air this Thursday, May 19 on FOX.

Turner's current single "I Wouldn't Be A Man" is steadily moving up the charts. The debut single from his current album Haywire, “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” a four-week No. 1 hit was the most-played song at country radio in 2010, according to Mediabase. It also won an American Country Award for Single of the Year-Male in December.  His last single, “All Over Me,” also reached No. 1, making him one of only seven country artists to have two No. 1 hits in 2010.

ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!

Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today.
