The Today Show is going country next week while co-host Kathie Lee Gifford is on vacation. Josh Turner will again join Hoda Kotb as co-host during the fourth hour of Today on March 19. ”I’m looking forward to co-hosting again with my beautiful Egyptian goddess!” Josh said. “It’s always a blast for me.”
The pair will talk about Josh’s new single, “Time Is Love,” as well as touring, his family, and songwriting. Josh’s new video for “Time Is Love” will debut on March 19 as well at 10/9 AM CT and airing throughout the day.
Josh isn’t Hoda’s only country co-host for the week though. Lee Brice will take over co-hosting duties from Josh on March 20. Hoda selected Lee’s hit “Love Like Crazy” for her iHoda Playlist in April of 2011 and nearly a year later, Hoda extended an invitation to Lee to join her on set.
“I’m really excited to co-host with Hoda,” Lee said. “I love that she loves country music and shares it with the world on her ‘iHoda Playlist.’ Buckle up Hoda, we’re gonna have some fun!”
Lee’s co-hosting gig kicks off a busy spring for him. He is nominated in the Song of the Year category at this year’s ACM Awards as a co-writer for Eli Young Band’s “Love Like Crazy” and will release his sophomore album, Hard 2 Love, on April 24. The album’s first single, “A Woman Like You,” is currently No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and is selling over 40,000 downloads weekly.
