About Asleep At The Wheel
Asleep at the Wheel has toured at a national level throughout its history. Lead singer Ray Benson and anywhere from 7-15 musicians (more than 80 have rotated in and out of the band) have gone on to perform with artists such as Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett, Ryan Adams, and many more. A quick scan of awards, such as “Touring Band of the Year” (CMAs, 1976) and “Lifetime Achievement in Performance” (Americana Music Awards 2009), not to mention near dominance of the GRAMMY “Country Instrumental” category over the years, reflects the reputation of the band’s musicianship. Ray Benson fell in love with western swing because of its unique combination of elements of American blues, swing and traditional fiddling but also for its demanding musical style. Western swing, what Benson calls “jazz with a cowboy hat,” is a thrill to hear live, thanks in large part to the Wheel’s 40 years of touring talent.
