Originally from the mountains of west Texas, Doug Moreland settled down in Austin at the turn of the millennium as a fiddler, songwriter, and woodcarver!

In January 2012, the multi-dimensional Country Music entertainer released The Flying Armadillos, the eighth of his fully independent albums. Named after his band, the album captured newborn songs with a traditional styling of fiddle, guitar, upright bass, and minimal drums. True to form, Doug’s original songs gathered influence from the western swing of Bob Wills and the easy-going style of Jimmy Buffett, mixed with humor the likes of Roger Miller.

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, Canadian Country Music star Corb Lund, and folk-rocker Ryan Bingham.

Doug has received a Will Rogers Cowboy Award for Western Music Male Performer of the Year from the Academy of Western Artists. He received an Entertainer of the Year award from the Texas Music Awards. Doug also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno with his former companion Holly-peño (a black/white McNab dog). And he recently made a guest appearance in Richard Linklater's film Bernie, along with Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine.
