Musical Instrument Museum - MIM says
Over the last forty-seven years, nine-time GRAMMY-winning group Asleep at the Wheel has boldly defied the lures of the mainstream by sticking to its cause of keeping Western swing alive and kicking. In reviving the freewheeling, electric sensibility of Western swing godfather Bob Wills, the Wheel has earned enthusiastic critical praise throughout its lengthy career. It has not only preserved classic sounds, which had all but disappeared from country music, but has also been able to update the music, keeping it a living, breathing art form.

"We’re a dance band. That’s what we’re about. And that’s plenty."
