Sammy Kershaw At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Hailing from southern Louisiana in 1958, country artist Sammy Kershaw received his first guitar when he was eleven years old. From that moment on, he helped support his family by playing at roadhouses at night. Those gigs led him to perform with Louisiana legend J.B. Pere and, later, Ray Price, Merle Haggard and George Jones, still while he was barely in his teens. In 1991, his first album, Don’t Go Near the Water, was released by Mercury Records.
