Synopsis

Album Description
Grand Ole Opry member Jimmy C. Newman was one of the original Cajun/country crossover stars, and certainly one of the biggest. Yet, surprisingly, in a career that's included 33 top 100 country chart singles, this is only Jimmy's third Cajun French album. The traditional and new songs include D.L. Menard's "La Porte D'en Arriere (The Back Door)," Johnnie Allan's "La Bague Que Brille (The Ring that Shines)," the traditional "Chere Tout Toute," and more. The band includes fiddler Rufus Thibodeaux and accordionist Bessyl Duhon.
