THE LIGHT CRUST DOUGHBOYS DESIGNATED
MASTERPIECES TOURING ARTISTS
The Texas Commission on the Arts has announced that The Light Crust Doughboys have been designated NEA American
Masterpieces Touring Artists for fiscal year 2008.
According to the Commission, The Light Crust Doughboys are one of 12 outstanding Texas artists from the current TCA
Touring Artists and Companies Roster chosen for inclusion in the American Masterpieces program.
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has placed a priority on touring and presenting the best in the arts this year, and
the Twelve Texas American Masterpieces artists and companies are centerpieces of this initiative. Says Doughboy member Art
Greenhaw of Mesquite, Texas:
"We're extremely honored by this designation since we're so committed to live
performances by professional musicians in all regions of Texas, and we especially wish to thank Texas Senator Bob Deuell for his
continued support of our touring in communities of every size, small and large, throughout the great State of Texas."
The Light Crust Doughboys are one of the world's top, historical Western Swing bands with inductions in many Halls of
Fame. The Light Crust Doughboys have recently re-opened a historic showroom on the downtown Mesquite, Texas square to promote
music and western arts including The Light Crust Doughboys Model guitars, bass, banjo and mandolin. For further information
