About Doug Kershaw

Doug Kershaw Biography

After an appearance on The Johnny Cash Show Doug Kershaw received a lot of attention which led to a contract with Warner Brothers/Seven Arts. Two months later Kershaw's autobiographical tune Louisiana Man became the first song broadcast from the moon by the astronauts of Apollo 12.
Kershaw also had a much-publicized week-long engagement at the Fillmore East in New York as the opening act for Eric Clapton's Derek & the Dominos. While it seemed to many rock and pop fans that Kershaw had appeared out of nowhere he had already sold more than 18 million copies of the records he had done in the early '60s with his brother Rusty.
Louisiana Man had been a top 10 country hit in 1961 and its follow-up Diggy Diggy Lo had done almost as well. The son of an alligator hunter Kershaw was the seventh born to a family that eventually included five boys and four girls. Raised in a home where Cajun French was spoken he didn't learn English until the age of 8. By that time he had mastered the fiddle which he played from the age of five and was on his way to teaching himself to play an amazing 28 instruments.
