Band founder Ray Benson (Fourth from left) and the current Asleep At The Wheel lineup.

Asleep At The Wheel has a lifetime history of making country music their way. They've released 20 studio albums, received 9 Grammy Awards, and exert an unrivaled passion for western swing that has brought them together on recordings with the likes of Willie Nelson, George Strait, Robert Earl Keen and Kat Edmonson.

Wheel founder Ray Benson is bringing the whole gang of eight Asleep At The Wheel members back to Greenville to perform as part of the annual Bob Wills Fiddle Festival and Contest, sharing the stage on Friday night with Dale Watson and His Lonestars. Ray took time from his packed schedule to speak with Notably Texan about the upcoming show, and more.

Notably Texan airs Monday-Friday from Noon-3pm on KETR.
