CLAREMORE, Okla. – Country music group Asleep at the Wheel will play on July 28 at Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs in the Dog Iron Saloon.

The 11-member band takes stage at 9 p.m. playing favorites from more than 25 studio albums, including hits “The Letter That Johnny Walker Read” and “Route 66.”

They are a nine-time Grammy Award-winning group that continues to tour, perform, collaborate with other top musicians and participate in annual memorials to honor band member Ray Benson’s mentor, Bob Wills, states a Cherokee Nation Businesses release.

“The wheels aren’t showing any chance of slowing after more than 40 years on the road, and they seem to still get their own kicks on Route 66,” the release states.

The show is free. WRD is located three miles east of Claremore on Highway 20. For more information, visit www.cherokeestarrewards.com or call 918-283-8800.
