Asleep at the Wheel has seen miles and miles of Texas. They got their kicks on Route 66. And, in 2010, the band hit another milestone with their 40th anniversary. Now in their 41st year, the band continues to introduce western swing to a new generation on tour and takes audiences on the ride of a lifetime with their play, A Ride with Bob.
“Its been an amazing ride. From Paw Paw to San Francisco to Austin, we’ve seen it all”, says Wheel front man Ray Benson. “But, rest assured, there’s still many exciting projects in the works. The Wheel keeps rolling!”

Over their history, Asleep at The Wheel has garnered nine GRAMMY Awards and released more than 25 studio and live albums, and there is no sign of slowing down any time soon. Just last year they earned a Grammy nomination in the newly minted Best Americana Album category for their critically acclaimed Willie & The Wheel, on Bismeaux Records. Most recently, another collaborative project paired the band with the legendary lead from Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys, Leon Rausch. The distinguished velvety vocals of the King of western swing partnered with post-modern kings of Texas Swing on Its A Good Day, which USA Today called, “swing from the heavens”. It was Leon who first suggested to Ray in the 1970s that The Wheel record Get Your Kicks (on Route 66). The Wheel has now recorded the hit 4 times in 4 different decades, with this latest version featuring Leon.
