Louisiana Hayride returns to Alberta this March

The Louisiana Hayride show is returning to tour this March for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Featuring tribute artists, a studio stage set, and a live band, this year’s Louisiana Hayride is a tribute to Buddy Holly.

“You’ll hear the best classic country and rockabilly hits from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s as the show pays tribute to the historical radio program, The Louisiana Hayride,” a press release for the show stated.

“After a two year break due to COVID restrictions, the case and crew of the Louisiana Hayride Show can’t wait to see you again and have an incredible show planned for their much anticipated return!”

In addition to songs and performances by Buddy Holly, the show will also have fan favourites, Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, Elvis Presley, Loretta Lynn, Conway Twitty, Crustal Gayle, Lefty Frizzell, and Shania Twain.
