Aaron Watson continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena. Watson’s newest release and highly-anticipated album Vaquero launched into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart with his biggest career sales debut to date, and at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart. Texas Monthly, Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, Noisey, CMT, The Boot and more have all featured the new music. Vaquero is the follow up to his history-making album The Underdog, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, making him the first-ever independent, male country artist to debut in the coveted top spot. The album features lead single “Outta Style,” his record-breaking Top 10 hit on country music’s national radio airplay charts. His recently released self-penned new single, “Run Wild Horses,” is top 40 and climbing on the country radio charts. Live at the World’s Biggest Rodeo Show, the “pioneering independent’s” (Cowboys & Indians) 14th album and his first live album in nearly a decade, is set to release on August 24, 2018, marking the one year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey’s landfall. $1.41 from each album sold will benefit the Rebuild Texas Fund, in recognition of the widespread devastation across Watson’s beloved home state. Recorded live in front of 65,000 fans on opening night of the 2017 Rodeo Houston, the album is particularly poignant to the Texas born-and-bred singer/songwriter.
Watson’s rise has been paved by years of hard work and perseverance. Eighteen years later, over a dozen recorded albums, more than 2,500 shows in the U.S. and Europe, and a newly inked global distribution partnership with ADA Worldwide, the Texas native is determined to stay true to his roots and deliver music directly to his fans. Watson shared his journey with fans via a video that has racked up over 7.2 Million views and 50,000 shares, proving his phenomenal connection to fans.
