Ray Benson founded Asleep at the Wheel in Paw Paw, West Virginia 47 years ago. Now based in Austin, the band boasts ten 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 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, George Strait and newcomers like The Avett Brothers, Amos Lee, Old Crow Medicine Show, and many others.
Asleep at the Wheel continues to develop their sound and brings a fresh look and feel to Strings in 2019. Now traveling as an eight-piece band, recent additions Katie Shore (fiddle, vocals), Dennis Ludiker (fiddle, mandolin) Connor Forsyth (keyboard, vocals) and Josh Hoag (Bass) have instilled newfound energy and their own unique style within the band. Between those Texas twin fiddles and boogie piano, you can bet you’ll be dancin’ down the aisles and swingin’ all night long when the Wheel rolls into town.
