Aaron Watson Announces 2017 Tour Dates
Aaron Watson has announced details about his upcoming tour in support of his new album, Vaquero.
The new tour kicked off Jan. 20 in Terrell, Texas, and keeps him busy through the majority of 2017, concluding in August with a final stop in Wisconsin. Watson is set to tour the U.S. and even make his way across the pond for a few dates in Europe, including stops in Dublin and London.
In addition to touring, Watson is also set to appear as the headline act on the opening night of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on March 7. Other country stars performing at the multi-day event include Alan Jackson, Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt and more. He'll also take the stage at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, in addition to performing at a variety of festivals including Arizona's Country Thunder, Country Stampede in Kansas and more.
Country Tours Hitting the Road in 2017
Watson's upcoming album, Vaquero, is set to debut on Feb. 24. The album's first single, "Outta Style," is currently climbing Billboard's U.S. Country Airplay chart. It will be distributed via Watson's own label, BIG Label Records, in collaboration with Nashville-based independent distribution company Thirty Tigers.
Vaquero serves as a follow up to Watson's 2015 album, The Underdog, which made history when it debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart, marking the first time an independent male country solo artist has accomplished the feat. It also topped Billboard's Independent Albums chart in 2015.
