Recipients of the 2012 Zydeco Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award, the Cha-Chas were also winners of the 2012 Big Easy Award for Best Zydeco Band. Their exciting new album, A NEW ROAD is the first release on their own label, Cha-Cha Records:
PRAISE FOR A NEW ROAD
"A New Road is one of the best traditional Zydeco albums I've heard since the days of Clifton Chenier!" - John Broven, author of South to Louisiana:The Music of the Cajun Bayous
"Nathan Williams never disappoints. On record and in person, you can always depend on Williams' rockin' Zydeco to lift your spirits and move your feet. For this outing on his own Cha Cha label, it's a Williams convention, a multi-generational family affair from top to bottom... the best Zydeco in the business."
- Grant Britt, No Depression Americana and Roots Music
"Williams has lots of variety in his first CD in almost six years... a professional musician since 1985, Williams shows his skills are as sharp as ever with eight original songs about good times, heartaches, faithful friends and even a rare Zydeco Christmas song."
- Herman Fuselier, The Times of Acadiana
