Heritage Festival for an unprecedented 27 consecutive years, including 2013. This year will also mark his continued activism in the Coastal Vision Foundation, the organization dedicated to restoring Americas eroding ocean coastlines. We are losing 2,400 acres a year in Louisiana, alone, says Toups. And its not just the Gulf Coast. Look what our eroded coastline resulted in when Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey and New York. Well be doing several fund-raisers for the organization this year.Appropriately, Wayne Toups Coastal Visions will be the title of his 2013 album. Also scheduled for release this year is Chance Favors the Prepared Mind, a filmed documentary about his life. I sat down and told my whole story, he comments. I didnt hold anything back, including his struggle to overcome substance abuse seven years ago. Wayne Toups picked up the accordion at age 13 and hasnt put it down since. He mixes Cajun sounds with the rhythms of zydeco, adding elements of soul music and Southern rock. He calls the revved-up result zydecajun, and his electrifying group, a Cajun fusion band with a rock n roll attitude.He has recorded more than a dozen albums and toured to more than 20 countries. His songs have been heard on such film soundtracks as Steel Magnolias and Dirty Rice. Always in demand for session work in his native Louisiana, Wayne Toups has also been hired to back the British pop artist Thomas Dolby as well as many of the stars of Nashville, including Alan Jackson (Little Bitty), Clay Walker (Live, Laugh, Love), Mark Chesnutt (It Sure Is Monday and Gonna Get a Life), Sammy Kershaw, George Jones, Garth Brooks, Ty England and Mark Wills. I want to share my Grammy with the people, says Wayne Toups. Well be doing more than 100 shows this year. Ive surrounded myself with some really good players, so the band is better than ever. Everything just seems so much easier these days.Country / BluesFolk ZyDeCAJUN Four Time Hall of Fame Recipient1. Louisiana Music Hall of Fame (2010)2
