Moving to Austin, Texas in the early 1970s at the peak of the Outlaw Country movement, Asleep at the Wheel carved their own musical identity out of the Country Music scene. Focusing more on the older style of Jazz-influenced Western Music than pure Country, Asleep at the Wheel quickly turned the heads of fans that had given up the genre for dead. Thanks to exposure from 10 different gigs on Austin City Limits, Asleep at the Wheel has become one of the leading bands in all of Western Music.
Asleep at the Wheel first burst onto the music scene with single “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie”, a cover song with deep lyrics and an upbeat tempo. The song helped establish the Western Swing sound that Asleep at the Wheel would use for the remainder of their career. Top-10 hit “The Letter That Johnny Walker Read” was a ballad that pulled at the heartstrings of listeners and led to Asleep at the Wheel becoming a critically acclaimed Country and Western force. Several big tours and an acclaimed live act pushed Asleep at the Wheel to superstardom.
Asleep at the Wheel would release a litany of albums and a jukebox full of classic songs. “Take Me Back to Tulsa”, “Get Your Kicks on Route 66”, “Miles and Miles of Texas”, and “You’re From Texas” were only a few of the many radio favorites. Asleep at the Wheel had their definitive album A Ride With Bob, which was a tribute to the legendary Bob Wills. “Roly Poly”, a collaboration with the Dixie Chicks, won Asleep at the Wheel another Grammy.
Asleep at the Wheel joined the critically acclaimed Live At Billy Bob’s series with a live album in 2003. Asleep at the Wheel continues to be one of the best live acts in the nation and has made their bones through almost four decades of touring. The long tradition continues in 2014 with yet another Asleep at the Wheel tour guaranteed to bring crowds to their feet. Order your Asleep at the Wheel tickets from OnlineTickets.com today!
