Willie Nelson and Asleep at the Wheel are in New York City tonight gearing up for their performance on Late Show with David Letterman this evening. A little bird told me they will be doing Hesitation Blues in from their current excellent release Willie and The Wheel. Tune your TV to CBS tonight at 11:30pm EST.
Willie and Asleep at the Wheel are currently touring the Eastern Seaboard and will end with two nights at Carl’s Corner. They have a Tour Diary Section on their official site featuring day-to-day activities on the road as well as photos from Kevin Smith.
Zalman King, producer of “9 1/2 Weeks” and “Red Shoe Diaries” – has been filming a documentary about the tour. No release date has been set. “This is a very special album and very special time for all of us,” says Asleep at the Wheel bandleader Ray Benson. “Having a fine filmmaker like Zalman document this tour is a great way to share all the fun we’ll be having with our fans.”
