In about ten days, country music stars will rally around the good work done by St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Tennessee, and a guy who grows a great beard will lead the way. 

Josh Turner has been named "Chairman of the Beard".  Participants will compete for the "beard of the year" award, which will be awarded on December 1st at the Nashville Area Beard Bash. Josh's fifth album is called "Punching Bag" and it is now in stores..
