Asleep at the Wheel, a group that has been blending Western swing and country for a unique sound for the last 50 years, is performing in Owensboro this Saturday. The band, which has won 10 Grammys among other prestigious awards, recently released a retrospective album with their current lineup.
The concert is set for Saturday at the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Tickets are available here. Preferred seating is $55, and reserved seating is $42. Doors open at 6 p.m., and the concert begins at 7 p.m. Bar and concessions will be available.
Asleep at the Wheel was cited by the Country Music Association as the 1976 Touring Band of the Year and was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Americana Music Association in 2009.
They have released 31 albums and have 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.”
