Asleep at the Wheel was founded in 1970 by Ray Benson in Paw Paw, W. Va. Now based in Austin, the band holds 10 Grammy awards, 20 studio albums and 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. The Grammy award-winning “Still The King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys” is the band’s most recent release (2015) and marks their third full-length Bob Wills tribute album. Featuring 22 acclaimed collaborations, the all-star line-up includes legends such as Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and George Strait and newcomers like The Avett Brothers, Amos Lee, Old Crow Medicine Show and many other fine talents.
Asleep at the Wheel is bringing a fresh look and sound, now traveling as an eight-piece band. Recent additions Katie Shore (fiddle, vocals), Dennis Ludiker (fiddle, mandolin) and Connor Forsyth (keyboard, vocals) have instilled a newfound energy and their own unique style within the band. Asleep at the Wheel’s Texas twin fiddles and boogie piano ensure that audiences will be dancing down the aisles and swinging all night long.Visit Event Website for More Info
