Woody Ledbetter

Originally from Monroe, Louisiana, Woody Ledbetter resides in Hackberry, Louisiana and writes folk/country songs that have a Prine-esque feel. Other influences include Dylan, Springsteen, Townes Van Zandt, Radney Foster and Jeff Tweedy. His writing began in the 80's when attempts at covering other artists seemed futile and the decision was made that if he wrote the song, no matter the quality of the outcome, it had to be correct. The result is a compilation of songs taken from observations and personal experiences that bring the listener to tears on some tracks and laughter on others. Eggshell Highway began as an attempt to just document the songs since Woody can't read or write music and there was no record of his music. Encouragement from other artists and his friends and family resulted in the production of the album.
