It's no secret, Louisiana has talent. Let's countdown a few songs that were on my radar from around the state last year.

If you're an artist that didn't make the list, don't get your sagging pants in a bunch. Sure, there's more music in Louisiana, but of the music that made it's way to my email inbox, these are the songs I loved and played the most. What are you going to do to make it on the list for 2019? Here's an idea to get started, send me your music.
