My daddy was a huge Bob Wills fan, so much so that he bought the records back in the day. My mom still has those records, and someday I hope to inherit them. Music was always one of the ways that my dad & I could connect.
More recently, he became a big fan of Asleep At The Wheel... and rightfully so as they are keeping the tradition of Western Swing alive. Just about every time Asleep At The Wheel played here in West Texas, I would get my folks tickets. Watching my mom & dad dance is something I'll never forget.
That being said, Asleep At The Wheel has new music out today!
"Still The King" features collaborations with.... well EVERYBODY. Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Merle Haggard, Randy Rogers, Reckless Kelly, The Avett Brothers, Old Crow Medicine Show, Shooter Jennings & so many more join in the celebration of the music of Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys.
I got my copy a bit early (radio perk) and can't stop listening.
I only wish I could watch my mom & dad dance together one more time.
