Johnny Rebel


Age: 77

Cajun country singer and musician whose songs frequently use the racial epithet nigger and often voiced sympathy for Jim Crow-era segregation and the Ku Klux Klan who became the "forefather of white power music" and went on to record many more singles for the late Crowley, Louisiana record producer J.D. "Jay" Miller's Reb Rebel Records label in the mid-1960's, including Nigger, Nigger, Coon Town, Who Likes a Nigger?, Nigger Hatin' Me, Still Looking for a Handout, Some Niggers Never Die (They Just Smell That Way), Stay Away from Dixie, and Move Them Niggers North, and who also recorded several country, rockabilly, and swamp blues songs that were not strictly about race under a number of stage names from the late 1950's to the early 1970's.
