Louisiana boy and Southwest Louisiana favorite Frank Forster is coming back to the area for a big concert in Lake Charles. It has been a while since Frank has performed live here in the Southwest Louisiana area but now the wait is over because he is coming back.

Frank Foster who is from Cypress Bottom, Louisiana got his start when a video that was posted of him playing music on a rig where he worked at the time went viral. He started collecting a ton of fans and started playing shows. He took a leap of faith and quit his job to pursue his music career and we would say, it paid off big time.

Frank has done it his way his entire career by releasing all of his own music without the backing of a big Nashville record company, you know grassroots style. Several of the independent albums he has released have vaulted into the top 5 on the Billboard Country Albums charts when they were released.

Franks's latest single is called Ridin' For The Brand which is getting a ton of traction. Of Course, most of you know all of his hits like Blue Collar Boys, Red Bird, Unwind, Something About Being Free, Rowdy Reputation, and Backroad Buzz to name a few.

Fun fact, Frank owns the record company Lone Chief Records and one of the first artists he ever signed to the label was a lady you may know., Lainey Wilson. Yep, Frank and his record label released Lainey's first album before she went to Nashville and struck gold there too.

Frank Foster will be back in Lake Charles on Saturday, January 27th, 2024 to perform at the Golden Nugget's Grand Event Center. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, October 27th, 2023 at 10:00 a.m.
