Asleep at the Wheel

It shouldn’t make you sad that kids these days haven’t heard of Bob Wills. After all, they’re the ones missing out. One of Texas’ greatest musicians, he gave the world Western swing and most of his music is just one Youtube search away. But if you feel it’s your duty to educate the young ones, grab a few whippersnappers and head to the Fort Worth Botanic Garden at 8:15 p.m. Sunday for Roy Benson and Asleep at the Wheel, the nine-time Grammy winning band that pays homage to the greatness of Wills. Tickets start at just $18, so you’ll still have plenty of cash for beer. More information at fwsymphony.org.
