• Dale & Ray - Dale Watson & Ray Benson

From the same kindred spirit that birthed Willie & Waylon comes Dale & Ray, a not-exactly-new classic-country duo. The musical partnership between the frontman of Western-swing outfit Asleep at the Wheel, Ray Benson, and Texas troubadour Dale Watson has been decades in the making, thanks in large part to their continually intersecting career paths. With their chummy new duets album, Dale & Ray, they finally combine their creative forces in the studio.

The pedal-steel-heavy, country & Western shuffle of The Ballad of Dale & Ray lays bare the duo's musical DNA. Says Watson: "I can't think of a more appropriate way to kick off the record. When you hear that song, that's me and that's Ray."

Along with Benson and Watson's colorful camaraderie, their larger-than-life personalities shine like neon throughout the album. Few of the project's 10 tracks go by without some lyrical shout-out born from their shared love of classic country icons, occupational hazards of the music industry and, of course, all things Texas. ~ Rolling Stone Magazine
