AW“The vaqueros didn’t set out to become any kind of icons…the vaquero was a laborer…owned their horses, saddles, and ropes and what they did with them would shape the history of Texas ranching.” – The Story of Texas

In the true spirit of the cowboy, “pioneering independent(Cowboys & Indians) Aaron Watson is wrapping 2017 with a Top 10 on the national radio charts as his self-penned “Outta Style” hits No. 10 BB/No. 8 MB. At 50 weeks, “Outta Style” marks the longest trek to the coveted spot in the history of Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart.  The Texas troubadour ended his banner year with his album Vaquero earning one of the 10 biggest album debuts of the year in country music and a number of “Best Album of 2017” nods, including Whiskey Riff and the No. 1 spot on Taste of Country’s year end list, proclaiming the project “a rich collection of cowboy poetry.”

An epic year on the road which included headlining shows for 50,000 plus at RodeoHouston and a historic “Night of Texas Music” at the Ryman, Watson will end 2017 with three sold-out nights at the Lone Star State’s oldest dancehall, Gruene Hall, December 21 through 23.  He continues his tour in support of Vaquero with a slew of 2018 dates, highlighted by a hometown arena show in Abilene (1/26), a Texas Independence Day show in New York City (3/2), and Stagecoach in Indio (4/29).  Full list of dates is below, tickets and information available at AaronWatson.com.
