Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.

    - Warm as summer sunshine, real as the truth, intimate as a long overdue visit between old friends ... such is a Jonathan Edwards concert. Four decades into a stellar career of uncompromising musical integrity, the man simply delivers, night after night - songs of passion, songs of insight, songs of humor, all rendered in that pure and powerful tenor which, like fine wine, has only grown sweeter with age.

    A highly respected repertoire that includes such classics as "Honky Tonk Stardust Cowboy," "Sometimes," "One Day Closer," "Don't Cry Blue," "Emma," "Everybody Knows Her," "Athens County," and everyone's favorite ode to putting a good buzz on, "Shanty." And then, of course, there's the anthemic "Sunshine (Go Away Today)," that fierce proclamation of protest and independence that resonated with thousands and thousands of frustrated and angry young men and women when it was first released in 1971. Almost 40 years later, at show after show, the song continues to be embraced by faithful followers and new fans alike.

    - Asleep at the Wheel has seen miles and miles of Texas. And, now in their 46th year, the band continues to introduce western swing to a new generation on tour and takes audiences on the ride of a lifetime..

    The musicianship of Asleep at the Wheel has become the stuff of legends. Taking a page from Bob Wills' book, the band has constantly toured at a national level throughout its history. The alumni roster is well over 80+ members, and includes an impressive list of musicians who have gone on to perform with artists including Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Lyle Lovett, Ryan Adams and many more. A quick scan of awards, including Touring Band of the Year (CMAs, 1976) and Lifetime Achievement in Performance (Americana Music Awards 2009), not to mention near dominance of the Grammy Country Instrumental category over the years, reflects the reputation of the band's musicianship.

    Over their history, Asleep at The Wheel has garnered nine Grammy Awards and released more than 25 studio and live albums, and there is no sign of slowing down any time soon.
