A bluegrass tribute album to country music legend George Jones by Commerce-based Grammy-Award winning music producer and musician Brad Davis is in the running for a Grammy Award. And Brad will be the music director of a proposed network TV revival of the legendary Louisiana Hayride. Plus, he has a new recording and tour in the works with Billy Bob Thornton and the Boxmasters.
Ruby Allmond was a singer and songwriter whose skills on the fiddle garnered her the title of "National Champion Lady Fiddler" in 1947. Her legacy lives on through her numerous recordings, including a new version of her song by Brad Davis.
Grammy-Award winning music producer, guitarist, and singer-songwriter Brad Davis says "the more the merrier" when it comes to the expected opening of a facility for area musicians in the old A.L. Day Elementary School building, under the flag of the New Orleans-based Tipitina's organization. Brad says he is extremely busy producing music by new artists in his downtown Commerce recording studio. And he says he'll be the host for a new Louisiana Hayride TV and radio program produced in Shreveport.
