You’ve probably seen “The Texas Music Scene,” with its host, nine-time Grammy winner Ray Benson. If Benson looks familiar, it’s because he’s the frontman for the Western swing band, Asleep at the Wheel.

“The Texas Music Scene” is a top-rated show that is seen by as many as 250,000 viewers each weekend in every city and town across Texas as well as on channels in Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Colorado. The show celebrates the unique music created in the Lone Star State with a focus on country, Americana, folk, and blues artists.
