Event Description:
Legendary Texas musicians Asleep at the Wheel will perform at the Pines Theater as part of their 50th Anniversary Celebration Tour.
 
Since inception, Asleep at the Wheel has received 10 GRAMMY® Awards, was cited by the Country Music Association as 1976 Touring Band of the Year and were given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association in 2009. They have released 31 albums, charted more than 20 singles on the country charts. Billboard commented on the band’s catalog most succinctly: “Everything this act has ever released is simply spectacular.”
 
Most recently, Asleep at the Wheel has been invigorated by a fresh new lineup and the release of New Routes, their latest album that is a bracing blend of original songs and vibrant cover material along with some unanticipated new musical tangents.  Asleep At the Wheel has demonstrated convincingly, that they are more relevant, enjoyable and musically nimble than at any time in their 50-year history. The 6’7” Ray Benson has been the one constant in Asleep at the Wheel since 1970.  He notes, “I've been told that I'm relentless, so I guess I am….  I’m just doing what I believe I’m meant to do — I’m singing and playing and writing better than I ever have. My role and concept of leading a band has never changed, it’s gathering the best musicians I can find or convince to play to the best of their ability, and I just try and make the best decisions possible and kick some ass every night onstage. I’ve made it this far and don’t feel like I or the band will be slowing down anytime soon.”
