Benefiting the Sherman Police and Fire Associations
August 10th at 7:00 PM
Doug Moreland captures a light-hearted take on the seriousness of life, with his traditional styling of fiddles, upright bass, mandolin, and guitar. His styling still gathers influence from the western swing of Bob Wills and the easy-going spirit of Jimmy Buffett, mixed with humor the likes of Roger Miller. In his meanderings, Doug discovered a financial & promotional spur for his musical career through chainsaw carving! Self-taught, with a bit of background whittling small pieces as a child alongside his father. Doug has received a Will Rogers Cowboy Award for Western Music Male Performer of the Year from the Academy of Western Artists. He also received an Entertainer of the Year award from the Texas Music Awards. Doug’s tour has extended from the state of Texas, western across the country and even to Europe. The band has performed with well-established acts such as Willie Nelson, Asleep At The Wheel, Robert Earl Keen, Dean Dillon, Canadian Country Music star Corb Lund, and folk-rocker Ryan Bingham. Doug has also made guest appearances in a handful of films, most notably the 2012 Richard Linklater film Bernie along with Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine. Doug also appeared on the Jay Leno show, Animal Planet, and Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.
