SULPHUR SPRINGS –Asleep at the Wheel, the country’s most famous Texas Swing band, is coming to the Dallas Arboretum on Tuesday, July 10, and two lucky News-Telegram readers will be there.

“This is our most popular concert and we are happy to offer two tickets to your readers for this Chihuly Nites show,” said Wendy Rentz, public relations manager for the Arboretum.

The News-Telegram will provide a $100 credit at Restaurant DeGolyer on the Arboretum’s grounds.

“We are offering a three-course Italian dinner that evening,” Rentz said. “It’s really delicious.”

The show begins at 7:30 p.m., but gates open at 6 p.m., giving visitors plenty of time to have dinner and see some of the the magnificent Dale Chihuly glass art installations currently on exhibit in the 66-acre park.

Asleep at the Wheel, founded by “Big” Ray Benson over 40 years ago, has released 25 records and has won nine Grammy awards, with hits like “Route 66” and “Hot Rod Lincoln.” They’ve recorded with stars like Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, original Texas Playboy Johnny Gimble and the Blind Boys of Alabama. In 2005, Benson co-wrote a muscical called “A Ride with Bob,” a celebration of Bob Wills, the King of Texas Swing.
