Josh Turner performed Wednesday night (July 22) at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville during a fundraiser for the Nashville Songwriters Association International. The event was the premiere of the not-for-profit organization's "It All Begins With a Song" performance series. During an acoustic set, Turner invited some of his co-writers to the stage, including John Anderson, Shawn Camp and Pat McLaughlin, and spoke candidly about the songwriting process. Midway through the show he was awarded a lifetime membership with the NSAI before continuing on with his full band, performing hits such as "Firecracker," "Your Man," "Long Black Train," "Me and God" and "Would You Go With Me." The NSAI is a trade association that advocates the intellectual property rights of its songwriters.
