The Grand Country Junction couldn’t get enough of Sara Collins last January.

That’s why she was invited to come back in March.

Collins, a 16-year-old singer from Central, Louisiana, will headline the Grand Country Junction’s “Country Roads” show on Saturday, March 17.

Tickets are $12 for adults and $7 for children ages 4-12. Children 3 and under get in for free. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the show starts at 7 p.m. The Grand Country Junction is located just off Interstate 12 at Exit 19 in Satsuma at the Suma Crossing Theatre.

This will be the second time in three months Collins will have performed in the Grand Country Junction’s, following her brief appearance during the show’s 11th anniversary celebration Jan. 20.

But this Louisiana teenager is no stranger to the stage.

Collins kicked off her music career at Carnegie Hall and has performed in venues across Louisiana in the last two years, including the Texas Club, the Old South Jamboree and in the Livingston Parish Fair last October. She’s also sung in Nashville at the Opry Mills Mall as well as at Puckett’s Grocery in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee.

She and her band also opened the inaugural Flambeau Fest that featured Sam Hunt, Hank Williams Jr. as well as Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others.

Collins released her debut album, entitled “Lovesick Cinderella,” last year and is an alumni of both PCG Nashville, an artist development program headed up by long-time music industry veteran, Bernard Porter, and “Louisiana Kids,” which provides live entertainment for fairs and festivals throughout the state.

On Jan. 20, the singing sensation made her debut appearance at the Grand Country Junction and performed a handful of songs, including a spirited version of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” which ended with a raucous applause from the audience.
