It was the year of 1952 when Hank Williams released this song, "Jambalaya on the Bayou". It would become one of his most popular songs and remained number one on the country charts for 14 non-consecutive weeks that year. Since then, the song has been played by many more musicians, including Jerry Lee Lewis, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Brenda Lee, George Jones and Creedence Clearwater Revival among others.
While listening to this song I imagine ordinary country folks gathered together in the late evening of a summer day. They are laughing, dancing, telling jokes and stories, and dining on traditional cajun dishes like crawfish, seafood gumbo and etouffe. *Wish I were there!*
