When I first saw the album cover for this, I thought it kind of odd, mixing politics with music. I thought it even odder, a politician being a good musician and a really good one. Needless to say, this is a very classy, country music album. It really doesn't get much better, and I think it ranks right up there with Hank and Lefty and the big boys. If the Governor was as good a politician as he was a musician, then the State of Louisiana used to be in good hands.

Louisiana! is a true rarity. The first country music album specifically recorded as a soundtrack. Jimmie Davis began his singing career in 1928 the same year he began to climb his way up the political ladder in Louisiana. He eventually would be elected twice to the governor's chair. He didn't do so badly in music--he wrote "You Are My Sunshine" and many other hits. Despite his popularity and long career, few single CD retrospectives are available on Davis which makes this CD a gem. I had the good fortune to do the liner notes to this release and highly recommend the disc both as a historical artifact and just plain good country music.

Wow, what a legend Jimmie Davis is. I am 28 years old and am blind in both eyes and now own every single one of his albums on CD. this is a wonderful soundtrack! I would love to correspond with any Jimmie Davis fan as I am probably the only youngster who just adores this beautiful singing voice. I am a guy and love the old time country gospel music. I ordered all my Jimmie Davis albums from a dear seller who I am proud to call a friend. Here is my entire Jimmie Davis album collection I have.

I ordered this for a birthday presentation for my father. This sign served as the cake plate for the decade representing the years my father was born and raised in Louisana. You Are My Sunshine is his favorite song and Jimmie Davis was a larger than life character in Lousisana during his youth.

Good old time country music. If you like that, you will probably like this too! My wife and I both enjoyed it, and it will be good to have on our next road trip.
