Asleep at the Wheel

Country, Swing
The self-described "Kings of Texas Swing" started out in 1969 with Ray Benson and Lucky Oceans (Reuben Gosfield) in Paw Paw, WV as a tribute to Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys. The group has opened for such artists as Alice Cooper and Hot Tuna. But since 1970, they have gone on to earn multiple Grammy Awards and record over 20 studio albums. Of their many singles on the Billboard Country charts, their highest-charting hit and perhaps most beloved tune is 'The Letter That Johnny Walker Read.' Their latest album, "Still King" was released in March.

Rick Astley

Pop
One of the music industry's most distinctive voices, Rick Astley has left an indelible mark on pop-culture since his emergence into the limelight nearly three decades ago. With well over 40 million records sold, and an enviable back-catalogue of chart-topping hits, Astley remains one of the most successful solo artists to have emerged from these isles, holding the distinction of being the first male solo artist to see his first eight singles reach the UK Top Ten. Just twenty one-years-old when he unleashed the iconic "Never Gonna Give You Up"; few debut singles have had the impact of Astley's. Taking instant residence in the charts; the smash became the UK's biggest selling single of 1987, going on to hit number one in 16 countries. The song became the centrepiece of debut album "Whenever You Need Somebody", which sold an astonishing 15 million copies worldwide, cracking the US Top 10 in the process, and earning Astley a coveted Grammy nomination for 'Best New Artist.' 2016 saw Astley return with a new album, "50," which quickly reached no. 1 on the Official UK Album Sales charts upon its June release; 2017 will bring his first U.S. tour since 1989.

Rock, Pop
Todd Rundgren is one of rock's true visionaries, experimenting with various media to fashion his pop masterpieces. After starting in the Philadelphia-area band Nazz in the mid-'60s ("Open My Eyes"), Rundgren took off as a star in the early '70s, with many hits, including "Hello, It's Me," "I Saw the Light" and a for-note replication of The Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations." He also started the band Utopia in the late '70s, and had three critically acclaimed albums with them in the early '80s. In recent years, he has performed both on his own (that included a mid-'90s tour during the lounge craze, where he played tiki versions of his hits) and with Ringo Starr's All-Starr Band, but he returned to the limelight in 2017 with the politically charged album "White Knight"; it which featured the single "Mr. Tin Foil Hat," co-written with and sung by Steely Dan's Donald Fagen.
