EXCLUSIVE — Joshua Ledet Hitting L.A. to Work on Debut Album, Will Appear on American Idol in April [VIDEOS, AUDIO]

May 2012:  Southwest Louisiana was in a frenzy as Westlake native Joshua Ledet climbed the ranks of American Idol.  Joshua Ledet was everywhere you turned. And then, all of a sudden?  Nothing.  And we’ve been waiting eagerly to hear what’s next for mega-talented singer ever since.  What’s Josh been up to?  Well, we asked him.

No rumors — straight from the man himself.  What’s the future for Joshua Ledet?  Josh sat down with Calcasieu Parish Police Juror Hal McMillin on his weekly show “Sportsman’s Paradise” on our sister station, Cajun Radio 1470/1290 AM. Hal’s a Westlake native, too, and the two of them caught up while explaining just what Josh has been up to these past months.

If you want to hear the entire interview (it’s about half an hour long in two parts), scroll down to the bottom.  But we taped some highlights for you, too, if you want the short and juicy version.
