Aaron Watson is now arguably the most well known Texas country artist. His recent fame came from a self produced album The Underdog released earlier this year.
Eventually soaring to the top of the itunes charts as well as earning a number one spot in the billboard top country albums and top 10 best country albums of
2015 (critics pick). The independent artists albums vast popularity was somewhat of a shock, but no surprise to loyal fans both old and new that had heard the self produced album. Even with Watson's new found popularity he stays true to his roots. If you browse his social media you'll find a well accomplished country artist settled on a Texas ranch with his beautiful wife and three kids. A statue I feel is what anybody would call a more than honorable lifestyle, and for that Mr. Watson I commend you for steering clear of the monotonous mainstream country lifestyle of booze, trucks, and chasing women.
Author's special mention:
Bluebonnet (Julia's song)-A heartfelt song about the emotional struggles of loosing their daughter shortly after birth.
Fence Post- A laughable story of his experiences and opinions on the Mainstream country scene in Nashville.
Freight Train-An upbeat and foot tapping song that is sure to leave you singing along.
