Asleep At The Wheel Holiday Show

Thursday, Dec 20, 2012 8:00p

Asleep at the Wheel has seen miles and miles of Texas. They got their kicks on Route 66. And in 2010, the band clicked another milestone on the odometer - their 40th anniversary. Now in their 42nd year, on tour, the band continues to introduce the western swing genre to a new generation and takes audiences on the ride of a lifetime!

Roll with the Wheel this season for their holiday show on the Paramount stage.

Drew Womack will be opening for Asleep at the Wheel.
