In what can only be described as a miracle, baritone-voiced country crooner Josh Turner did more than sing love songs at the recent Franks-Haddington wedding party. Though happy with his ice-cold Coke, the singer took action when he heard other wedding reception guests complaining about the sparse beverage selection.
There were six large water dispensers on one of the tables and a few sodas, but no alcohol and the crowd was getting anxious. As some of the bridesmaids giggled, Turner laid his hands on the water containers for a few awkward moments before pronouncing: “Get the bride’s dad a mug of this.”
Expecting spring water, James Franks nearly choked when the substance that touched his tongue was none other than pure, sweet Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. “It’s a miracle!” he exclaimed as the excited throng lined up behind the six taps, cheering loudly. Although Turner did not partake of the redneck nectar of the gods and stared accusingly at those who did, he was certainly the hero of the day. “I don’t know how he did it or if it was just some parlor trick, but I’d follow that guy anywhere,” said reception guest Phillip James.
Since that storied day, members of Turner’s band have discontinued their quibbling about Josh’s strict personal behavior policies and begun looking to him as more of a leader than a fellow music professional.
