Major congratulations to my “Comin’ Right at Ya” co-writer/subject/star Ray Benson, who has done it again at the Grammy Awards. Asleep at the Wheel’s Still the King: Celebrating the Music of Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys has won for best recording package, which makes it an even 10 Grammys for The Wheel going back to their first way back in 1979. It’s also their first Grammy since 2000, which happened to come in this same category for another Wills tribute album, 1999’s Ride With Bob.
