Grand Ole Opry member, and Acadiana native Jimmy C Newman, 'The Alligator Man', has suffered a fall, and will not be performing this weekend at Festivals Acadiens et Creole  on the Friday night show with Jambalaya and D.L. Menard. Mr Jimmy has had several huge country music hits, including “Cry, Cry Darling” in 1954 and “A Fallen Star”in 1957.

Mr Jimmy is a true Louisiana treasure - sending good wishes for his speedy recovery from all of us here at 97.3 the Dawg!
