Private Concert Set for Final Night

Country singer Josh Turner will perform at the Governor’s Farewell, the final event of the 145th General Conference & Exhibition, Aug. 18-21 in Reno, Nevada.

“We’re excited to have a performer of Josh Turner’s magnitude close what will be a conference to remember,” said Lt. Col. Shaun Cruze, the president of the Nevada National Guard Association and the host-state co-chair of this year’s annual NGAUS conference.

The Governor’s Farewell is set for Aug. 21 in the Reno Ballroom. It will be open to all registered conference attendees. Food and drinks are included.

With his distinctive baritone voice, Turner has sold more than 6.5 million records, reached 4.8 billion global streams and is a fan favorite on country radio, according to MCA Nashville records.

Turner’s hits include Long Black Train, Would You Go With Me, Why Don’t We Just Dance and Your Man. The official music video for Your Man is available on YouTube and has garnered more than 170 million views.

A South Carolina native, Turner won 2021 the Gospel Music Association Dove Award for I Saw The Light featuring Sonya Isaacs, off of his I Serve a Savior album.

Turner has also received six Inspirational Country Music Awards. He has been nominated for two Grammy Awards, five CMA Awards, one CMT Award, two ACM Awards and seven ACA Awards.

Holding a Governor’s Farewell reception on the conference’s final night is a break in recent NGAUS tradition. The States Dinner typically ends the association’s annual conference. This year, the States Dinner is set for the evening of Aug. 19.

Nevada officials decided to do things differently during the latest NGAUS conference. “We want the conference to go out on a high note and make every day worthwhile,” Cruze said.
