Josh Turner lived out the lyrics to his latest hit "Time Is Love" by taking his wife Jennifer and their three sons on a beach vacation over the summer. The only problem was the family was 19 hours away from home for one of Josh's shows when that week started. Josh knew he'd eat up two days worth of that week getting home, getting packed and driving to their destination.
"By the time we get there, we're going to be worn out," Josh thought.
Since he is a country star, Josh decided to have his tour bus drop them off at his grandparents' beach house, which was closer to where they were than Nashville.
"That way were able to have more time just trying to relax," Josh explains. "So, we had fun at the beach eating sea food and all that stuff."
It's a good thing Josh had that extra time because it now takes him about three days to really get into the groove of relaxing while on vacation.
He says, "A big part of that is just turning your phone off and doing other stuff and taking your mind off things."
Josh gets back on the road September 27 with a show in Carmel, IN.
