Description

Louisiana Hayride Rides Again! Come Join us as we pay tribute to that magic period of country music with the weekly show that made Elvis, Hank Williams and Kitty Wells superstars! It’s the show where Western Swing, Texas two-step, Cajun waltzes, Kentucky Bluegrass, Tennessee Hillbilly, Southern Gospel and Memphis Rockabilly converged every Saturday Night in the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport Louisiana from 1948-1960 and broadcast on KWKH with 50,000 watts of country power across the USA!
It’s the musical incubator of artists like Jim Reeves, Webb Pierce, Faron Young, Johnny Horton, Bob Lumen and a whole heap more. Shreveport born and raised musicians that went on to become household names got their start on the Hayride – musicians like DJ Fontana, Floyd Cramer and James Burton. Sun Studio artists like Elvis, Jerry Lee, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and more were Hayride regulars as were country stars of the day like Lefty Frizzell, Ernest Tub, Bob Wills, and June Carter.
We love doing this show and bringing you the stories and lives behind the hits. It’s such a big part of country music history and the classic songs stand the test of time so well.
Get dressed up in your western/rockabilly duds (or come as you are) and book a retro night of country culture at Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL!
