When Sammy Kershaw burst upon the country music scene in 1991 with the infectious and rambunctious "Cadillac Style," music critics, the country audience and industry took quick notice of this dynamo from Southern Louisiana. A fresh, unique and authentic powerhouse, he was quickly declared the future of country music.
Multi-platinum albums later, the Cajun country superstar has established an indelible presence in the industry he took by storm. From the slyly seductive "Don't Go Near the Water" and plaintive "Yard Sale" to the engaging "She Don't Know She's Beautiful" and buoyant "Vidalia," Sammy has forged his own path to the future by demonstrating that an artist can evolve while staying true to his own vision.
With the completion of "Labor of Love," his sixth album for Mercury Records Nashville, he has elevated his artistry to a more profound level. Although the blue collar rascal and honky tonk charmer still exists on "Labor of Love," the textured layers of Kershaw's voice unfold in thoughtful measures, allowing us insight into a more introspective and heartfelt artist.
Sammy's ability to ascend to dramatic, emotional heights has been fashioned by the rocky road he has navigated in his lifetime. He was born in the heart of Cajun country and his mother soothed him to sleep with the music of Hank Williams, Sr., thereby creating his lifelong affinity with music.
A rough childhood, his father's tragic death when Sammy was 11, broken marriages and a devastating stint with drugs and alcohol have formed a man of intriguing complexity and an artist who has no peer. He has been there, done that and lived to sing the story.
