Happy 65th birthday wishes are going out to Ray Benson today from all of us here at Kickin' Country 103.1. The Asleep at The Wheel front man was born on this date in 1951 in the city of brotherly love Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Ray founded Asleep at The Wheel back in 1969. Back in the beginning days of the band, they saw themselves open for Alice Cooper. Over the years, the band has recorded 31 albums and they've won 9 Grammy awards.

Hopefully Ray and Asleep at The Wheel will be back in the Concho Valley soon! Happy birthday Ray! Sound off and leave your birthday wishes for Ray Benson in the below comment section!
