He's out there again this year, rocking America with his spicy blend of rock, folk, r&b and Cajun styles. There is no one quite like Wayne Toups, as any attendee of his 125 sold-out shows a year can attest. This year, Toups is out there with a difference an album that bottles the outrageous energy of his performances with the Cajun tunes of his boyhood.
"I thought it would be good to touch my roots again," says the musician who is equally revered by Nashville stars who hire him to play on their records and critics who raved about seven prior albums. "This album is my roots, but I wanted to give the people something extra. It's not an all-French record. I wanted to reach back, yes, but I call this creating tradition within the tradition. So we took these old songs and made them 'Wayne Toups' songs. I'm trying to reflect our live show, so it's a party record."
