With the release of The Underdog in February 2015, Aaron Watson made country music history by becoming the first ever independent artist to debut an album at #1 on Billboard Country Chart. This achievement was highlighted by the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2016 with an installation commemorating this milestone showcasing some of Aaron’s artifacts throughout his career that brought him to this place. Since then he has gone on to take his tour around the world performing headline shows, many sold out, from Boise to Boston/San Diego to Chicago and across the pond in Italy, France, Sweden, and the UK.
The press continue to praise his music as well…”a proud country traditionalist” - Rolling Stone, “winning in country music” -NPR, “one of the few real cowboys left in country music” -iTunes, “puts the bite back into traditional country music” -Rolling Stone are a few of the rave reviews his brand of country music has received. In a world where country music at times seems to have lost its identity and roots, Aaron remains firmly committed to staying true to his music and the brand; the epitome of representing Texas, cowboy hats, buckles, and fiddles that have served country music and country music lovers for generations while always staying focused on the core values that have brought his unprecedented success to this point….faith, family, and fans.
