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.
The album was certified Platinum and was led off with the single “Cadillac Style” at Number Three. The single was followed with more hits, like “Yard Sale” and “Anywhere but Here.” Kershaw released the Number One hit “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful” in 1993 and followed it with a string of Top 10 hits, like “Haunted Heart,” “I Can’t Reach Her Anymore” and “Third Rate Romance.”
In 1994, he recorded the song “Fire and Rain” on the AIDS benefit album Red Hot + Country. In 2008, he was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame, and, in 2010, he was inducted nito the Louisiana Songwriters Association Hall of Fame.
