A Country Classic
Sammy Kershaw is an American country music artist. Many have described him as a classic throwback to the sound of traditional country. Sammy got his start in music very early on. At the tender age of 11, after his father died, Sammy began playing roadhouses at night to support his family. He found success right away, performing with Louisiana legend J.B. Pere. He opened for many acts, including Ray Price, Merle Haggard and George Jones. He released his first studio album in 1991, “Don’t Go Near The Water,” which was certified platinum. Since then, he’s enjoyed massive success, releasing nine other studio albums, with more than 25 singles entering the top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs.
Four years ago, Sammy took a break from music. With the ever-evolving sounds of the country music, he wondered if there was still a place for his Pure Country sound in the industry. One day, while listening to some music, he became entranced by the lyrics of an old Johnny Paycheck song. The last line states “we’ll give our all to music, and we’ll give our life.” He knew instantly that he had to make a comeback, and couldn’t let the music die inside of him.
Country fans will be happy to know that Sammy Kershaw has recently released some new music. His new album, entitled "I Won’t Back Down," has been a true labor of love. Longtime fans can expect this album to be his most varied album of material he’s released during his 25-year career. He’s singing about real life experiences. If he hasn’t personally experienced something, he won’t cut a song about it. This is what makes Sammy Kershaw so relatable and authentic to audiences nationwide. This album also stands because this is the first album that he has produced himself. But the real icing on the cake is Sammy Kershaw will be going on a world tour to help promote his album. One of his stops… Lady Luck Casino Vicksburg!
