His song “Roll On” was also used on an episode of the FX television hit series Sons of Anarchy. Zito debuted his new band, The Wheel, in 2012, and their latest record is Gone To Texas, which was nominated for the Rock/Blues Album of the Year at the Blues Music Awards last year. “Texas saved my life.
