“It was great recording my album Goin’ Home in my hometown at Blade Studios in Shreveport. North Louisiana now has a world-class recording studio that exists in part as a result of the various incentives Louisiana has for our industry, including the Sound Recording Investors Tax Credit. In a world of shrinking recording budgets, Louisiana has led the way in creating incentives for artists to come and work in our state.”
