The Shreveport-based country music show known as the Louisiana Hayride is set to be inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.
The show, which ran from 1948 to 1960, hosted such country music greats as Jimmie Davis, Floyd Cramer, Webb Pierce and Faron Young. They were regularly joined by top artists from Texas to Tennessee, including Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, George Jones, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley.
The Louisiana Hayride will be inducted during a ceremony at the James Burton International Guitar Festival in Shreveport on Saturday.
Burton, who is known for his guitar work with the Elvis Presley and Ricky Nelson bands, is also set to be inducted, along with music businessman Stan Lewis and the late country music singer Johnny Horton.
