New video of Kevin Smith with Willie Nelson!

Great slap bass player (and member of The Art of Slap Bass forum) Kevin Smith plays with Willie Nelson's new Western Swing project that includes members of Asleep at the Wheel!

Willie and the Wheel, which is the name of this band, toured all over US and recorded a great album. Kevin is on 9 of 12 tracks of this record. The Art of Slap Bass readers will be happy to hear his nice solo on the song "Bring It down". The band just released a video clip for the single Hesitation Blues. You can check it out here and see Kevin slapping his legendary Ideal Cooler bass at 0:22 (behind Willie), 1:34 and 1:43!

Congratulations to Kevin!!!
