Ray Benson Taking Bob Wills Musical on Tour

Asleep at the Wheel’s Ray Benson will present an original musical based on Bob Wills’ musical legacy in several cities this year. A Ride With Bob, which Benson co-wrote with Anne Rapp, will be staged in San Antonio (June 1-2), Fort Worth, Texas (June 16-17), San Francisco (July 21-22) and Washington (Sept. 22-24). In the musical, Benson is visited by the spirit of Bob Wills, who shares his music and personal stories during a late-night visit on the Asleep at the Wheel bus. The production premiered last year in Austin, Texas.
