Cajun or Zydeco?
The Grammy Award for Best Zydeco or Cajun Music Album was an honor presented to recording artists at the 50th , 51st , 52nd and 53rd Annual Grammy Awards — for quality zydeco or cajun music albums. The Grammy Awards , an annual ceremony that was established in and originally called the Gramophone Awards,  are presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States to "honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency and overall excellence in the recording industry, without regard to album sales or chart position". Beginning in , advocates began lobbying for a Grammy category specifically for cajun and zydeco music. The group Pine Leaf Boys holds the record for the most nominations, with four. Though nominated each year the honor was presented, the group failed to receive an award. Doucet and Cedric Watson each received three nominations. Many nominated artists were from Louisiana , specifically Lafayette. In , the Academy announced the retirement of the award category. Beginning in , zydeco or cajun recordings were eligible for the Best Regional Roots Music Album category.

Don't write off this bar as a tourist trap because the music is so legit. Music line-up kept the crowd dancing, clapping and singing along. There were violins, accordians and washboards!
