Josh Turner: What’s Behind His Newborn’s Name?

Josh Turner and his wife Jennifer recently welcomed a little boy to their clan– his name:  Crawford Marion Turner. What? How? Why? We’ll here’s how he tells the story…Little Crawford Marion joins his brothers Hampton Otis (4) and Colby Lynch (18 months) at the Turner home, but how did Josh and Jennifer come up with Crawford MARION?

Josh gave the details to Lon Helton and The CMT Country Countdown USA – heard on K99 Sunday nights at 7pm:

“Marion came from one of my heroes, the Revolutionary War general Francis Marion,” Turner says.

“They called him the Swamp Fox out of South Carolina, and our sense of this child was that he was going to be a warrior and a fighter and somebody that was able to overcome challenges,” he adds. “And so he looks like he’s got that look in his eye [laughs].”

I’m guessing that the little one will pick up on being a “Swamp Fox” soon enough!

Be listening for Josh‘s latest singe- “I Wouldn’t Be A Man” today on K99!
