Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel "Willie and the Wheel"

Today’s Cool Album of the Day is Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel’s, “Willie and the Wheel.”

Which 2009 release sat in my CD player the most? It easily was Willie Nelson and Texas swing band Asleep at the Wheel teaming up for Willie and the Wheel. This was such a fun record. Short, only 36 minutes in length and just a bunch of fun.

They covered ‘Hesitation Blues’ (Hot Tuna used to do a great rendition of this) and also ‘I’m Sitting on Top of the World.’ Some of my favorites included ‘Sweet Jennie Lee’ and also Oh! You Pretty Woman.’
One of the most accessible records I’ve heard in a long time. I real easy listen.

“Willie and the Wheel” peaked at #90 on the Billboard Top 200 and #13 on the Billboard Country Charts.
