Aaron Watson Gets Home State Honor

Aaron Watson Gets Home State Honor

Aaron Watson will be inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2020.

The Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame—which includes members such as George Strait, Robert Earl Keen, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson and more—was created to honor individuals who show excellence in competition, business and support of rodeo and the western lifestyle in Texas.

Aaron, a native of Amarillo, Texas, has released more than a dozen albums over his 20-plus-year career, including his 2015 No. 1 album, The Underdog. The induction ceremony will be held at Billy Bob’s Texas on Jan. 16, with tickets available now. Proceeds benefit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame & Museum and its ongoing education programs and western lifestyle preservation efforts.

“If I can look back and think of the two things that have defined my career more than anything else—it’s Texas and cowboys,” says Aaron. “To be elected to the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is hard to put into words, but it’s a humbling honor—especially when I see the names of my some of my heroes like Nolan Ryan, George Strait and Willie Nelson on that list. I’ve always said my music isn’t about honors and awards but this one is special. What an evening it will be in January for the induction and I know I’ll be counting down the days.”

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
