Broussard is a much underrated soul singer from Louisiana who is perhaps best known for writing and recording "Home," one of the most well-written and passionate songs of the current decade. It must be a huge honor for him to hear one of his songs recorded by a legend. Hopefully Cocker's album can help bring Broussard more notoriety for his own recordings as well.
