Willie and The Wheel -- on VOA

Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel (led by my old friend Ray Benson) have come out with a new CD, "Willie and the Wheel," which has been receiving excellent reviews.

Here's a link to a report on it on Voice of America -- a government radio station aimed specifically at the international market. You can read to the report by clicking HERE or listen to it by clicking HERE.

I've known Ray since we were teenagers in suburban Philadelphia -- and I profiled him last summer after seeing The Wheel perform at the Country Rendez-vous festival in Craponne, France.

I posted pictures of that concert on this blog.
