Rockin' Song of the Week No.93 - Sammy Kershaw

Sammy Kershaw - Louisiana Hot Sauce

I liked a lot of the early Sammy Kershaw stuff during the CMT Europe years, and thought that although he sounded a lot like George Jones, he did it in his own style and didn't just sound like an immitator. I wasn't really aware of Louisiana Hot Sauce until I watched last nights episode of the great True Blood. This swampy rocker sounded so great in such a steamy scene and was further proof of how good country music can here in the right film/tv scene.

The song was cut in late 1998 at The Tracking Room in Nashville and featured such stawlwarts of the Nashville scene as Brent Mason [electric guitar], Keith Stegall [gt], Paul Franklin [steel], Glenn Worf [bass], Eddie Bayers [drums], Stuart Duncan [fiddle] and good ol' Hargus "Pig" Robbins on piano.

Check out some of these earlier videos and see if you can spot the Sonny Curtis lookalike in Third rate Romance -that's if you can get yer eyes off the blond!
