Josh Turner has broken his silence after the devastating bus crash in California last week that took the life of his longtime soundman David Turner.

Josh posted to Facebook, “As I try to write this I don’t know what to say. It’s a struggle to put into words the devastation and grief that our road family is trying to process. We lost a beloved member of our team, David Turner. He was like a brother to so many in this industry and a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Please continue to keep David’s family in your prayers. All of our crew suffered significant injuries and many have long roads to recovery. I would ask that you give them privacy during this time.”

He added, “Many of you have asked where you can support the guys and their families. My management company has created a GoFundMe page for our road family for anyone wishing to contribute. https://www.gofundme.com/f/JTcrewdonations
Your prayers have been felt. Please keep praying.”
