Aaron Watson is a 39 year old country artist whose career spans a dozen albums and more than 2,500 shows throughout the U.S. and Europe. Watson’s most recent effort is Vaquero, an ambitious 16-song record that features character-driven storytelling, level-headed cultural commentary, and love songs for grown-ups. Vaquero promises to further solidify Watson's status as one of today’s finest torch-bearers of real country music. Watson remains strikingly similar to the people that still dot his native West Texas. They’re a rugged people, proud of home but humble and hardworking. They are the first to help a neighbor but also fiercely independent, and Watson is unquestionably one of them.
