It's no secret that Texas has always had its own kind of music and its own kind of music business to go along with it. But even by the wide-open standards of the Lone Star State, the ongoing career and success of Aaron Watson are something else. With an uncanny knack for mixing great songs and unforgettable performances with good, old-fashioned business savvy, Watson has grown – night-by-night, fan-by-fan, album-by-album, one honky-tonk stage at a time – into an unstoppable force in Texas Music with his sights firmly set on the national stage.
While the record business desperately tries to fix its own elevator, you’ll find Aaron Watson out on the road – with an expanded touring schedule that includes stops in Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and New Mexico – doing what he does best, playing timeless country music, selling thousands of records, and truckloads of merchandise, and shaking the hands of those friends and fans each night.
“The good Lord’s really blessed me,” he says. “From my management to my booking to the 10 phenomenal guys I’ve got out on the road, it’s crazy how the pieces have just fallen together. It’s been a neat experience.”
