As a child, Saucier studied classical violin and performed with the Oak Cliff Symphony Orchestra at the age of 15 where his exceptional talent was the starting point of a great career.
His passion for the fiddle and mastery of Western Swing lead to a performance with Hank Thompson and Leon McAuliffe in the 1950s where he was a regular at the Big D Jamboree in Dallas Texas with KRLD.
In 1965 he joined the Joanie Waco Show where they played extensively around the country including Las Vegas, Nevada as well as military bases around the country. During this time Billy Jack and Joanie were married.
Saucier has played at the National Fiddlers Contest in Mt View, AR, the Roy Clarks Theatre in Branson, Missouri, the The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee and numerous venues across the country. Saucier released his own album, Back In The Country, in 1974.
