With a 17-year career that spans a dozen albums and more than 2,500 shows throughout the U.S. and Europe, Aaron Watson is considered one of today’s finest torch-bearers of real country music.
Considering himself an “anti-rock star,” the singer-songwriter’s music is delivered with a warm smile and fueled by a wild spirit.
His 2015 album, The Underdog, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart, marking the first time an independent, male country artist had ever outsold majors to premiere at the top spot.
His most recent release, Vaquero, is an ambitious, 16-song set of “character-driven storytelling, level-headed cultural commentary, and love songs for grownups.”
