“An Aaron Watson Family Christmas” is the perfect holiday event for the whole family. The event will be packed full of Christmas classics and songs from his critically-acclaimed Christmas album of the same name, plus some of Aaron’s most popular hits, performed by Aaron and the band, along with special appearances from the Watson family. The event will also feature special surprises sure to put everyone in the holiday spirit.
Aaron Watson’s career is perhaps summed up best by Forbes, who says he’s “one of country music’s biggest DIY success stories.” For over 20 years now, Aaron Watson has traveled the nation as country music’s ultimate underdog troubadour – a truly independent artist with the spirit of the American frontier in his veins, and a self-made empire to match. Working without corporate backers, he has nonetheless reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s Country Album chart five separate times – an impressive feat by any standard. His triumphant 2015 set, The Underdog, landed at #1, becoming the first independent album in the history of country music to top the Billboard Country Albums chart. Matching sold-out shows across the country with homegrown hits, he’s followed suit at country radio, making history in 2017 with “Outta Style” and “Run Wild Horses.” “Watson has made a career out of giving his fans music that focuses on the positive. Music that serves as a salve to what ails them. Music filled with light and joy and an abundance of pride for the country he calls home,” said People of the 2021 American Soul album. With a dozen additional records under his belt, Watson is exceeding major-label-sized metrics while maintaining his independence, further galvanizing his “Texas country's reigning indie underdog” (Rolling Stone) brand. This next chapter of his trailblazing career sees him deep in the weeds on two projects: the first, an album of covers dedicated to his daughter; the second, a 2024-slated album of originals that promises to be his most daring and audacious release to date. While the former honors incredible songs originally recorded by females, the latter is a project that he says will be the best Country album of 2024. Aaron Watson is a man constantly reaffirming his dedication to the craft of songwriting, and it is this commitment to quality and treating his fans with respect that has proven him, time and again, to be the living North Star for country music’s free and indomitable spirit.
