Light Crust Doughboys Hall of Fame and Museum

The Light Crust Doughboys Hall of Fame and Museum is a fascinating history of the longest playing Western Swing band in the United States. The Light Crust Doughboys were the original Bob Wills Fiddle Band. The museum has a collection of pictures, clothes, and sound systems from the "old days."

[Kathy McKinley, 04/30/2008]

The general manager of the Light Crust Doughboys was W. Lee "Pappy" O'Daniel before he became governor of Texas. Gov. "Pappy" O'Daniel was the character Charles Durning played in the Coen Brothers' O Brother Where Art Thou? (2000) who hitches his political star to the Soggy Bottom Boys, hapless convicts-turned-musical group.
