She was nominated for the 2021 OffBEAT Magazine “Best of the Beat Awards” in two categories: Best Gospel Artist and Best Country/Folk/Singer-Songwriter Artist.

Huval has performed with Sweet Cecilia at Festival International de Louisiane in Lafayette, Louisiana; the world famous Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival in Breaux Bridge, Louisiana; French Quarter Festival; New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in Louisiana, and many more venues across the gulf coast.
She also performs with her husband, accordionist, Adrian Huval of the Louisiana based group, The Bluerunners. She and her husband have two sons, Nate and Rex, and reside in Cecilia, Louisiana.
Born, raised, and currently residing in Lafayette, LA Roddie Romero lives and breathes South Louisiana culture. His passion for authenticity shows in multiple aspects of his life, from his music with The Hub City All Stars to what’s cooking in his cast-iron black pot. But before the celebrated frontman had a Grammy nomination and multiple international tours under his belt, he was witnessing the magic of Cajun and zydeco music in his own backyard.
