Aaron Watson is “The Honky Tonk Kid”
Bootfest has sure had its share of bona fide country talents take the stage, and our Saturday night, Oct. 4 headliner for Bootfest 2014, Aaron Watson, certainly fits the bill. With seven #1 singles on the Texas Country Chart, Aaron has carved out quite a career in the Texas Country Music scene and has established himself as one the genre’s top stars. Raised in Amarillo and currently living in Abilene, Aaron hasn’t strayed from his roots as a musician and earned his success “the old-school way” by selling records out of his backpack as a student at Abilene-Christian University and playing to small crowds that continued to grow. Play any one of his singles and you’ll quickly see that Aaron is still pure country, even as the genre as a whole has displayed a lot of changes in the last several years. His most recent album release, “Real Good Time”, is loaded with full-force fun swingers (“Real Good Time”), tongue-in-cheek romps (the satirical “Hey Y’all”) and slow, heartfelt tunes (“July In Cheyenne”). Watson’s philosophy has always been to make good, wholesome, fun music that’s reflective of what he believes in. His performance at Bootfest 2014 will help make this year’s festival the best one yet.
