Amarillo Native Set to Release New Album

Aaron Watson’s unique style of Texas country music has amassed him a legion of fans. Selling out arenas nightly, Watson has taken his love of country, inspired by George Strait’s recording of “Amarillo By Morning,” and turned himself into one of the biggest country acts working the Texas music scene today. And, his fans can look forward to another treat from the country star, when his latest album hits the shelves this year.

Watson will drop his new album, Red Bandana, on June 21st of this year. The album will mark his first standard studio album release since 2017’s Vaquero, which peaked at number one on the Billboard Country chart. The first single to Watson’s album is already out, “Kiss That Girl Goodbye.”
