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. Watson is committed to building on his milestones thus far and will continue to share his music with fans worldwide. For more information, visit

About Missy Wolf

Missy Wolf Co-Founder, Editor, Journalist & Vice President of the American Country Music Association

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
