Trombone Shorty and Little Big Town shared a collaborative cover of “Jambalaya (On The Bayou).” Proceeds from the single will benefit the Roots Of Music organization that “empowers the youth of New Orleans through music education, academic support and mentorship.”

New Orleans-native Trombone Shorty (Troy Andrews) and Alabama-natives Little Big Town recorded “Jambalaya (On The Bayou)” for the CBS special United We Sing: A Grammy Salute To Unsung Heroes that aired in June. The musicians previously collaborated at the 2016 ACM Awards and again at the 2019 CMT Awards.

Hank Williams wrote “Jambalaya (On The Bayou)” and released his recording of the song in 1952. Covered several times over the years, others who recorded “Jambalaya” include The Carpenters, Fats Domino, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Jo Stafford and more.
