Aaron Watson was inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame on Jan. 16 at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth.
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.
“Getting inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is a huge honor,” says Aaron. “Many legends and a lot of my heroes are on that list. I am humbled by their recognition and it was a wonderful evening getting to celebrate it with my wife, kids and parents attending. Texas and cowboys have had a huge impact on making me the man, artist, and businessman that I am today.”
