Sawyer Brown Go to Mardi Gras

With founder Harry Connick Jr. on an overseas tour, the Krewe of Orpheus parade in New Orleans is getting an additional country boost with Tuesday’s (Jan. 11) news that Sawyer Brown will appear in the Mardi Gras procession. They’ll join Toby Keith, who had already been announced to serve as the parade’s celebrity monarch. In Greek mythology, Orpheus is the world’s greatest mortal musician. Following the Feb. 7 parade through uptown New Orleans, Sawyer Brown will perform at an elaborate gala billed as Orpheuscapade.
