Asleep at the Wheel

Western Swing Ain't Dead

Featuring John Michael Whitby on the keyboard,  Jim Murphey (I think) and Cindy Cashdollar on steel,  Jason Roberts also singing backup and some youngster I can't get figured on fiddles,  I believe that's David Miller playing the upright bass and I'm guessing David Sangor on the drums.

This is one of the 1,387 versions of a band that has enjoyed a 40 year run as one of America's favorite working bands, having won 9 or so Grammys and numerous other awards from Rolling Stone's Country and Western Band of the Year to the Acadamy of Country Music's Touring Band of the Year, all the while featuring it's one enduring presence, the great Ray Benson on guitar and vocals.

It's Asleep at the Wheel.

Route 66



After 40 years on the road it seems like Ray might be losing it a little as they're starting to have to stamp his name on his stuff.
