Our headliner’s independent Texas spirit and strong work ethic are emblematic of the western lifestyle; virtues which have taken him from humble honky-tonks to multiple sold-out tours around the world.
“The big Nashville labels turned him away, and the radio stations refused to play him at first, but now, with a number one album and the most loyal fan base around, Aaron Watson has become a country music sensation.”- Texas Monthly
Singer/ Songwriter Aaron Watson has found success on his own terms, building a lauded career through relentless touring, songwriting hits that speak to his loyal fan base and dropping more than a dozen self-released albums. With influences from both his dad’s worn out vinyl country music collection to the reverent hymnals he sang in church as a boy- Watson’s style is as authentic as they come.
With a dozen additional records under his belt, Watson is exceeding major-label-sized metrics while maintaining his independence, further galvanizing his "Texas country's reigning indie underdog" (Rolling Stone) brand. “There may be no more genuine singer-songwriter at the moment than Watson, “says Texas Monthly, pointing to a self-made businessman, chart-topper, and road warrior whose authenticity has made him a country music staple.
