Patriot Festival returns once again in 2022. This year’s annual 4th of July celebration is headlined by country superstar Josh Turner! This event is proudly presented by 107.7 WIVK and the City of Pigeon Forge.
Josh Turner has received multiple GRAMMY, CMA, and ACM nominations and has also joined the Grand Ole Opry. Country music legends such as Randy Travis, John Anderson, Johnny Cash, Vern Gosdin and Hank Williams have inspired his most recent album, Country State of Mind. The new album features dozens of songs, including songs from those five legends among others, span more than half a century of classic country music.
For nearly two decades, Turner has been one of country music’s most recognizable voices, and he has never kept his reverence for traditional country music a secret. Josh looks forward to performing some of his greatest hits in Pigeon Forge, celebrating America’s birthday in style.
