It’s no secret that Texas has always had its own kind of music and its own kind of music business to go along with it. But even by the wide-open standards of the Lone Star State, the ongoing career and success of Aaron Watson are something else. With an uncanny knack for mixing great songs and unforgettable performances with good, old-fashioned business savvy, Watson has grown night-by-night, fan-by-fan, album-by-album, one honky-tonk stage at a time into an unstoppable force in Texas Music with his sights firmly set on the national stage. In 2004, Watson hooked up with veteran producer and Asleep at the Wheel leader Ray Benson to release his fourth album, The Honky Tonk Kid, which spawned the hit single, “Reckless”. His next release, San Angelo, also produced by Benson, debuted at #60 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and continued Watson’s career momentum and impressive album sales. Watson’s 2008 release, Angels & Outlaws, reached #28 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and landed in the Billboard Top 200. The album’s debut single, “Hearts Are Breaking Across Texas”, reached the #1 spot on the Texas Music Chart. His 2010 release, The Road & The Rodeo, reached #25 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and landed in the Billboard Top 200. Aaron Watson’s latest album, Real Good Time, has reached #9 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and features prominent guests including PBR champion Justin McBride, Elizabeth Cook, Pat Green, Josh Abbott, Kevin Fowler, John Anderson and Willie Nelson.
