In March he was featured on the cover of Pollstar magazine, a spot reserved for rising artists. But don’t be mistaken – Watson has been building his career for the past 18 years, with more than a dozen albums and 2,500 shows under his belt.

You can catch Watson on stage next at the “Lone Star Jam” in Austin May 27.

Watson has also announced his first headline performance at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 4. “A Night Of Texas At The Ryman” features fellow Texas natives Jon Wolfe, Mickey Guyton, Jim Collins and Leslie Satcher. 

Canadian fans can catch Watson at the “Calgary Stampede” July 13. The event takes place at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta.
