Project Description

Asleep At the Wheel

Based in Austin, TX, Western swing/country/roots phenom Asleep At The Wheel has won nine Grammy Awards since their 1970 inception, released over twenty albums, and has charted more than 20 singles on the Billboard country charts. The musicianship of Asleep at the Wheel has become the stuff of legends and Reuter’s pegged The Wheel as “one of the best live acts in the business.” Since the early ’70s, the band has been known as one of the most important forces in keeping the sound of Western swing alive, and have not only preserved classic sounds that had all but disappeared from country music, but have also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form. Asleep At the Wheel pays tribute to Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys  on their 2015 CD,  Still the King on Bismeaux Records.
