This year's State Fair of Louisiana is chock full of fabulous country and gospel concerts. Last night, it was Frank Foster and the LoCash Cowboys on the KXKS Stage, and tonight it's Grammy Award winner and country legend, John Anderson on the KWKH Stage.


Anderson won't take the stage until 9 pm, so you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the PRCA Rodeo, or rides or other shows. In fact, the 13th Annual Gospel Music Celebration will be held prior to the John Anderson concert on the KWKH Stage.

It will go on all day from 10 am until 5 pm. Here's the lineup of Gospel acts you can enjoy: Hunter Mason with Eli Haydel, Heaven's Echoes, Voyagers, N Him, Open Range, Velvet Ridge, Cross Point, His Call and Broken Vessels.

I interviewed John Anderson on the KWKH Morning Show Friday, and he told me he has been playing guitar since he was 7. He broke it big with his Seminole Wind, album, which was released in 1991. The title cut sailed to No. 2 on the charts, and spawned the No. 1 hit, Straight Tequila Night, was certified two times platinum. He was nominated for three CMA's that year, Male Vocalist, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year.

Seminole Wind was like a fire that re-sparked his career. The 1993 album, Solid Ground produced another No. 1 single, Money in the Bank. He has enjoyed the success of five number one hits and some 38 that charted high.

Everyone remembers hearing Swingin' on Top 40 stations after it crossed over from atop the country charts, where it peaked at No. 1. Swingin was from his fourth album, Wild and Blue , in 1982.

Here's my interview with John on the KWKH Morning Show.
