Western Swing is all things Texas, uniquely American and loved the world-over. Nine-time Grammy winners, Ray Benson & Asleep at the Wheel have been the genre’s chief practitioners, conspirators, and caretakers for over forty years, carrying its timeless tradition well into the 21st century, reaching not only their contemporaries but the next generation of artists inspired by the Lone Star State’s favorite son, Mr. Bob Wills.
AHH-HAA, here we go again! A celebration of Bob Wills’ music, which I hope presents not only the incredible legacy of his music, but also the relevance and love of Western Swing that still exists amongst today’s artists, young and old!
