|Edwards signs book at Gilley concert|
With Mickey Gilley playing on one side of the Bryant Hammett Vidalia Conference and Convention Center, former Governor Edwin Edwards and author Leo Honeycutt were playing to the crowd on the other side with a book-signing in between Gilley's shows.
"I'm glad I'm here," Edwards said. "Mickey Gilley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jimmy Swaggart have brought a lot of attention to this area. I've met with all three of them and been to their concerts. I've been to Mickey's place in Houston. I've been to Jimmy's church on a number of occasions. I'm always proud of the people of Louisiana who excel in education, music, poetry, fishing, farming or whatever. We have some really great people in this state."
The 84-year-old Edwards served as governor of Louisiana for four terms (1972–1980, 1984–1988 and 1992–1996), twice as many terms as any other Louisiana chief executive has served.
In 2001, Edwards was sentenced to 10 years in prison on racketeering charges. Edwards began serving his sentence in October 2002 in Fort Worth, Texas, and was later transferred to the federal facility in Oakdale.
