2004 Donations

The Crickets and Their Buddies

donation to the Texas Music Foundation
The Crickets and their Buddies is the first record ever released that will have part of its proceeds donated to the Texas Music Office's Texas Music Foundation fund. The TMF is used to make grants to benefit music-related educational and community programs sponsored by nonprofit organizations located in the Crickets' native state of Texas. One such program is to finance the purchase of a musical instrument from any Texas retailer by students who could otherwise not afford them. "The Texas Music Office is proud and delighted that these legends of American rock & roll have chosen to give so generously to those creating the next generation of Texas music," said Casey Monahan, Texas Music Office director. "We were happy when Sovereign Artists, the Crickets' label , opened a Texas office, but we were even happier when they chose to partner with the Music Office to promote music education."
