LINDEN – Jo-El Sonnier, the undisputed “King of Cajun,” will return to Music City Texas Theater on Saturday, May 25, beginning at 8 p.m.
The Rayne, La., native has several Top 10 Country Music hits to his credit, including “Tear-Stained Letter” and “No More One More Time.”
Sonnier has been nominated for a Grammy four times and was nominated by the Academy of Country Music for the New Male Vocalist of the Year award in 1988.
His songs have been recorded by artists such as Johnny Cash, George Strait, EmmyLou Harris and John Anderson. He was inducted into the The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame in 2009.
Known for his high energy stage performance, Sonnier shares his traditional music with crowds around the world. He is backed by Louisiana Pride, a band of accomplished musicians that includes Chip Bricker on keys, Timmy Dugas on drums, Danny Scallions on lead guitar, Ganey Arsement on bass guitar and Clint Ward on fiddle.
Sonnier was one of the first artists to perform when Music City Texas Theater opened its doors in 2003.
“We’re excited to have him with us as we celebrate our 10th year of bringing great music to Northeast Texas,” said David Hulme, theater manager.
General admission tickets are $25 and are on sale now. Call 903-756-9934 or visit MCTT online at www.musiccitytexas.org.
