Doug Kershaw

geb. 24. 1. 1936 in Tiel Ridge/Louisiana

Record Labels: Hickory, MGM, Mercury, RCA, Warner Brothers, Bear Family Erster Hit: Hey, Sheriff (1958) Erster Top Ten Hit: Louisiana Man (1961) Der Cajun Fiddler und Sänger Douglas James Kershaw begann seine Karriere Anfang der 50er Jahre zusammen mit seinen Brüdern Russell Lee „Rusty“ und Nelson „Pee Wee“ als „The Continental Playboys“ bei der Radio Station KPLC in Lake Charles. Die ersten Hitparadenerfolge kamen zusammen mit Bruder Rusty (geb. 2. 2. 1940) als ,Rusty And Doug“. Die beiden wurden Mitglieder beim Louisiana Hayride und später auch bei der Grand Ole Opry. Als Rusty Alkoholprobleme bekam, machte sich Doug Kershaw selbständig, hatte auch bei Warner Brothers einigen Erfolg, doch konnte er als Solist nie ganz an die Popularität des Duos anknüpfen.
