The legendary, Grammy nominated Jimmy C. Newman - An absolute pioneer in Cajun-Country music history!

He charted 33 songs on the Billboard Country Chart from 1954-1970.  A multitude of artists broke through due to his trail blazing. Dolly Parton credits him with giving up one of his slots on the Opry so that she could have a chance to debut there.

A Grand Ole Opry member since 1956, he continued to play the Opry until 2 weeks prior to his passing on June 21, 2014. He was 86.
