King Size Manger, Turner’s first-ever Christmas project, which was released last year, features fresh interpretations of the classics and introduces four originals, three of which were written or co-written by Turner.

Says Turner, “I was really excited that we were able to release King Size Manger on vinyl this year. I’ve collected vinyl records pretty much my entire life and there is just something extra special about listening to Christmas music on a record player.”

Taped at The Grove in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the Gaither Gospel Series DVD, King Size Manger, features new performance footage of Turner singing all eleven songs from his debut holiday album.  Hosted by Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase, the renowned television hosts also sit-down with Turner and his family who share some of their favorite Christmas traditions and holiday memories. The live performance DVD features guest appearances by The Turner Family, Rhonda Vincent, Pat McLaughlin and more. Video singles will also be available on the Gaither Music TV YouTube channel.

“I wanted the special to feel like an extension of our Christmas tour from last year,” says Turner. “My family came out on the road and they were a big part of ‘The King Size Manger Tour.’ Jennifer played keys on numerous songs, Hampton played most of the show and Hawke, Marion and Colby were all featured on several songs. I think we were able to capture a big part of the road show.”
