MP3 Michael Hurtt and His Haunted Hearts - Come Back To Louisiana
The Hearts'' patented Rock-A-Bayou Hillbilly style can be likened to a Southern gothic collision of the rural and the urban; the electrified string band sounds of Luke Thompson, Hunter Watts and Hollis Albin blending with a Cajun back beat.

COUNTRY: Traditional Country, ROCK: Rockabilly
A favorite of everyone from Lazy Lester to the late, great Hunter S. Thompson, the Haunted Hearts convened in 2003 with the sole purpose of single-handedly resurrecting New Orleans'' once rich, now nearly invisible hillbilly music heritage. Blending their own classics such as "Mean Mean Moon," "Lonely Mardi Gras" and "I''m On My Last Go ''Round" with Deep South Rockers, West Bank Honky-Tonkers and Bayou Lafourche Ballads by the likes of Jay Chevalier, Red LeBlanc and original "Mardi Gras Mambo" man Jody Leavins, the Hearts'' rural rockin'' string band sound also salutes the great states of Mississippi, Texas, Tennessee and California, not to mention those Midwestern hillbilly strongholds, Indiana and Michigan.
