Aaron Watson Announces New Tour Dates For 2017

NASHVILLE, TN — Country music’s independent force Aaron Watson has announced new tour dates for 2017 in support of his acclaimed album Vaquero. The tour includes U.S. and international stops, with five marquee shows that were announced in five days across his social media last week. Watson will perform at the CMA Music Festival Chevrolet Riverfront Stage on June 10th and will headline the PBR World Finals at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Nov. 2nd. The trek also includes stops at Calgary Stampede, Globe Life Park in Arlington, TX and Cimarex Energy Pavilion in Midland, TX. For the first time, Watson will headline the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville with “A Night Of Texas At The Ryman” on Oct. 4th. Featured artists on the bill include Texas natives Jon Wolfe, Mickey Guyton, Jim Collins and Leslie Satcher. (See full list of tour dates below.)

Vaquero debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, outselling his smash predecessor The Underdog, which debuted at #1 in 2015, making him the first-ever independent artist to debut in the coveted top spot. At the helm of his own record label, Watson continues to add to his increasing profile. Lead single “Outta Style” is currently Top 40-and-climbing on the Billboard Country Airplay charts. Radio stations in markets including Austin, Buffalo, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Phoenix, Providence, San Antonio, San Jose and more are spinning the infectious song as Watson’s sound continues to turn heads across the country. Watson recently performed “Outta Style” during his national TV debut on Fox & Friends. Watch HERE.

 Eighteen years later, over a dozen recorded albums and more than 2,500 shows in the U.S. and Europe, the Texas native continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena. With an impressive story paved by years of hard work and perseverance, he’s amassed a loyal following. The now nationally recognized artist, his music and his unprecedented rise have been the subject of in-depth feature stories in Texas Monthly, Pollstar, Billboard, CMT, Rolling Stone Country among many others.
