      Dale Watson

      Keeper of the true country music flame and flying the flag for classic honky-tonk for over three decades, Dale Watson has positioned himself as a tattooed, stubbornly independent outsider only interested in recording authentic country music. His 1995 debut, “Cheatin’ Heart Attack,” wowed writers and fans with its potent songwriting and authentic honky tonk vibe, 1998’s “The Truckin’ Sessions” was the first of a series of LPs devoted to his love of big rigs, 2007’s ”The Little Darlin’ Sessions” saw Watson recording alongside some of the legendary session musicians who inspired him, and 2019’s “Call Me Lucky” found him creatively revitalized after relocating to Memphis, Tennessee. Watson continued to thrive in Memphis, delivering the instrumental record “Dale Watson Presents: The Memphians” in 2021, the covers album “Jukebox Fury” in 2022, and the acoustic country-blues set “Starvation Box” in 2023.

      Having christened his brand of American roots “Ameripolitan” to differentiate it from the current crop of Nashville-based pop country, the Alabama-born, Texas-raised, Austin- legend is a true outlaw who stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State.

      Dubbed “the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin’, Lone Star beer drinkin’, honky-tonk hellraiser” by The Austin Chronicle, Watson sat in with Jimmy Kimmel’s house band as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) from SXSW 2015. He also emceed the first ever SXSW “Ameripolitan ” showcase featuring the best of Honky-tonk, Outlaw Country, Rockabilly and Texas Swing music.
