Aaron Watson

An independent-minded singer and songwriter in the Texas honky tonk tradition, Aaron Watson plays country music with a traditional feel but a young man's energy, and has earned a loyal fan following in the Lone Star State. Born in Amarillo, Texas, Watson's earliest musical influences were the gospel hymns he sang in church with his family and the classic country records by George Jones, Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson his folks played around the house. Watson began writing and singing his own songs while he was a student at Abilene Christian University, and after graduating he became a regular fixture on the Texas honky tonk circuit.

In 2002 Watson released his first album, Shutupanddance, which was a major success in Texas, spawning the hit singles "Off the Record," "I Don't Want You to Go (But I Need You to Leave)," and the title tune. The album also earned him airplay and media attention nationwide, and Watson followed up his debut in 2004 with The Honky Tonk Kid, which was produced by Ray Benson of Asleep at the Wheel and featured guest vocals from Watson's hero, Willie Nelson. Watson and his band the Orphans of the Brazos captured their energetic live set on tape with their 2005 release Live at the Texas Hall of Fame, and Watson returned to the studio in 2006 for his fourth album, San Angelo.

In 2008, Watson began transforming his sound -- albeit subtly and without leaving his Texas roots behind -- toward a more contemporary country radio-friendly approach on the reflective Angels & Outlaws. In 2010 he released The Road & the Rodeo, returning to more uptempo material, while smoothing his edges further. The result was more airplay, higher-profile touring engagements, and charting inside Billboard's Top 200. Watson's success continued to grow with 2012's Real Good Time, which rose to number nine on the Billboard Country Albums chart, and cracked the Top 20 of the Independent Albums survey. And Watson scored a major breakthrough with 2015's The Underdog. Belying the album's title, The Underdog (produced by Keith Stegall, who also worked with George Jones and Alan Jackson) made its debut on the Billboard Country Albums chart at number one, the first time a male artist on an independent label had topped the chart in his first week. "That Look," a single drawn from the album, also hit the Country Airplay chart, topping out at 47, and another, "Getaway Truck," was a radio hit in Watson's native Texas. The hard-working Watson did plenty of touring in support of the album, playing 148 shows in 2015. ~ Mark Deming

People quit with the stupid " don't read this you'll be kissed on the nearest possible Friday" s**t no one cares and no one does them!!! If your not commenting on the music then don't be commenting at all!!!! S**t!!! Look how easy it it... Watch... This is good music. Easy

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now that you've started reading this don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it you will have very bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 144 mins. When your done press space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen this is so freaky it actually works.

I think he's great for people who've loved country forever and people new to it. One of the undiscovered greats!

I'm from San Angelo originally, so when I heard his song about a girl from San Angelo...tha t pulled me in, and what I found was good sounding music, no ride on my tractor crap, or pop country! If you listen carefully to HANK III, he speaks of the only true country music still around is in Texas. I believe he lived here for a while, or possibly just loved playing here, who knows. These Texas Country Music singers are unique and I think we should keep it that way. - J.R.
