February 8, 2012 - Hershel Frazier

DeQuincy's Hershel Frazier is singing his latest song about the Louisiana Purchase and the state's bicentennial. 

"It's about Louisiana," said Frazier.  "Louisiana becoming a state and divided into parishes.  Then on down to the Bicentennial part of it, and on down to DeQuincy itself."

Writing songs comes natural to Hershel.  They've been performed at all kinds of celebrations.

"I've probably written over a hundred for all kinds of things.  Military, anniversaries, just individual people." 

He says the words just come to him automatically.  But one thing's certain:  he loves the U.S.

"Oh yeah.  Patriotism.  Because I'm a veteran.  That's why.  And I love this country."

"Thank God the Louisiana purchase was made.

Frazier has been invited to perform his song before the Southwest Louisiana Genealogical Society next month.
