On October 16, 1994, 40 years to the day since his first appearance with Elvis and Bill Black on the Louisiana Hayride in 1954 Scotty returned to Shreveport for a 40th Anniversary concert.   The concert was held at the very same venue on the very same stage which is the Municipal Auditorium in Shreveport Louisiana.

The anniversary concert was put on by promoter Reggie M. Churchwell of Nashville International Concerts in association with Joey Kent, owner of the Louisiana Hayride Archives.  Joey also supplied the original banner and created the souvenir programs.

The show featured Scotty, D.J. Fontana, Carl Perkins, The Jordanaires and Ronnie McDowell.  Festivities surrounding the concert included a "The King of Rock-N-Roll" race at the thoroughbred track where Scotty and Reggie M. Churchwell presented a trophy. In addition to having his handprints cast there the mayor of Shreveport declared that date as Scotty Moore day in Shreveport, LA.
