Turner released his fifth studio album, Punching Bag on June 12, 2012 which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart. The debut single, "Time is Love," was #1 on the Best of 2012 Billboard Country Chart. The Associated Press said, "With Punching Bag, Turner once again proves he ranks among the most effective--and most hard-core country--performers of his generation."

Jody Mow, COB of LifeSavers Foundation, said that the Board of Directors is happy to have Josh come to the Dallas area for this concert. She singled out some lyrics from "Long Black Train" which truly reflect the fact that Josh understands the pain and heartbreak that people face in their daily lives and the essence of the mission of LifeSavers Foundation:

"There's an engineer on that long black train,
Makin you wonder if the ride is worth the pain
...That train is a beauty makin everybody stare,
But its only destination is the middle of nowhere."

Mow says, "The ride is worth the pain, the destination is assisting the underserved and the beauty of it all is that The LifeSavers Foundation is there to help individuals engineer better lives for themselves."
