Dale Watson (USA)

The Austin-based honky-tonker Dale Watson carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music. Dubbed “the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin’, Lone Star beer drinkin’, honky-tonk hellraiser” by The Austin Chronicle, Watson is a veteran touring artist and consummate entertainer, he is on the road more than 300 days a year. And on those other days, he and His Lone Stars are performing at one of his two Texas Honky-Tonks. Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades and is rapidly approaching legendary status. A country music maverick, a true outlaw who stands alongside the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State, Watson is keeping the integrity and passion of true country music aflame.
