Asleep at the Wheel started with Ray Benson and a simple goal: to play and help revive American roots music. The band got their big break in 1971 when Van Morrison mentioned them in an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine.Since then, the band has released more than 25 studio albums, garnered nine Grammy Awards and won such honors as Touring Band of the Year (CMAs, 1976) and Lifetime Achievement in Performance (Americana Music Awards 2009). Asleep at the Wheel has created their own living and creative genre of music with no intention of slowing down anytime soon.

"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" -CMT
