DREW LANDRY PERFORMS AT GULF
COAST RELIEF BENEFIT CONCERT
ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30
Nashville, TN – Lafayette musician Drew Landry will perform at a benefit concert in support of Gulf Coast relief efforts this Saturday, October 30th at 9:00 PM at Spanish Moon in Baton Rouge, LA. Landry will join Abe Manuel Jr. (Merle Haggard’s former fiddle player) and other special guests for the benefit concert as part of the Gulf Change Rally – a one-day rally and forum for Gulf Coast citizens to voice their questions and concerns about the recent oil spill disaster. Landry’s single, “BP Blues,” received national attention after he performed the song during his testimony at July’s Presidential Commission meeting.
A $10 contribution to attend the concert will help send local coastal citizens to Washington D.C. For further information regarding the Gulf Change Rally and benefit concert, contact Brandi Gascon firstname.lastname@example.org.
Warner Bros. Records recently released “BP Blues,” a soulful tune about the hardships and lost jobs that residents faced due to the oil spill in the gulf. The single is available on iTunes and all digital retailers. All of the label’s proceeds will go to benefit gulf coast cleanup efforts.

He has sold a combined 12,000 copies of his self-released albums and has charted singles on the UK Americana charts. His latest album, Sharecropper’s Whine, was released by Landry’s band, Bandryland. His EP, Hurricane Relief & Tailgaten Companion, debuted at 11 on the Euro Americana chart. Landry’s music has earned him gigs alongside Billy Joe Shaver, Charlie Louvin and Dwight Yoakam. He has also played with Texas country acts such as Robert Earl Keen, Cross Canadian Ragweed and Randy Rogers and Rockers like Johnny Winter, Hank 3 and Sonny Landreth, to name a few.
