The Wheeler Brothers
The Wheeler Brothers’ yarn-spinning dates back to their high-school days, when they first began jamming at the Wheelers’ place. Upon graduation, the lap-steel player enrolled at the University of Texas, while the other four members of The Wheeler Brothers went off to Louisiana State University; they played together during their time there, but things didn’t lock into place until their return to Austin, at which point A.J. rejoined the group and the quintet began playing around town. The five-time Austin Music Awards winners, The Wheeler Brothers, have never played a hometown gig that hasn’t sold out. Most recently they won the 2012 Austin Music Award for: Best New Band, Best Roots Rock.
