Current Western Swing

Historical Western Swing

In the next several issues of Pencilstubs, I will try to continue my several articles on the history of Western Swing. Many, many, comments have been received directly by me and many more have appeared below the several articles I have written since the October Issue of 2000. There are still comments being made on the original article because it is referenced any time someone just looks for Western Swing by typing just those two words into a search engine. Well, letís face It, I love the referrals, and now just thinking of that, I feel I should continue to add all the information I can find on an interesting subject, from all sources beside all the information I have accumulated over the years from clippings and the backs of old record covers.

So every month or so I will find and report on some interesting fact, history, or an individual who helped make this genre very special in the history of American Music.

Greenhaw Records Offers Signature Guitars in Seasonal Promotion

Grammy Award-Winning Greenhaw Records of Texas, acclaimed gospel, western swing, rockabilly and surf record label, has announced strategic collaborations with The Ventures Model guitars and The Light Crust Doughboys Model guitars for the upcoming, 2007 Christmas selling season.

To further the label's goal of introducing new players to the art of electric and acoustic guitar, Greenhaw Records is selling and distributing The Ventures Model guitars and basses and The Light Crust Doughboys Model guitars and basses from its Mesquite, Texas showroom and headquarters, along with offering a collectible 10-item music CD/DVD package featuring Grammy-Winning artists with each guitar or bass sold from now until the end of the year.

Says Greenhaw Records label head, Art Greenhaw,

"Guitars, basses and our label's combo music go hand-in-hand. For decades, The Ventures' albums and The Light Crust Doughboys' albums have sold thousands of guitars through the power of the music. In these challenging times where we're seeing music education being cut back in key areas, our record label is committed to doing everything we can to get music-making and guitar-playing back in as many homes and hands as possible."

Greenhaw Records is the home to such acclaimed artists as The Light Crust Doughboys, Ann-Margret, Nokie Edwards of The Ventures, The Jordanaires, The SMU Mustang Band, gospel great Larry Ford and many more. Greenhaw Records is pleased and proud to now offer some of the world's most inspiring guitars--guitars with a story to tell--The Ventures Models and The Light Crust Doughboys Models.
