Aaron Watson Returns to the Ryman Auditorium with Rodney Clawson, Liz Rose, and Tom Douglas

Aaron Watson is set to make a rousing return to Nashville's iconic Ryman Auditorium on January 24, 2019. As announced via Watson's socials this week, opening the marquee date is a songwriter in-the-round lineup featuring some of his native Lonestar state's songwriting royalty: Music Row hit makers Rodney Clawson, Liz Rose, and Tom Douglas.

Hailing from Gruver, TX, Clawson's staggering 24 No. 1 songs include "I Saw God Today" (George Strait), "Amarillo Sky" (Jason Aldean) and "American Kids" (Kenny Chesney). Rose, born in Dallas, TX, had her first major hit with Gary Allan's "Songs About Rain" and went on to co-write 16 songs with Taylor Swift, including "Teardrops on My Guitar," "You Belong With Me," and "Tim McGraw"plus the mega-hit "Girl Crush" (Little Big Town). Douglas, who previously called TX home before moving to Music City, has written numerous number one hits, including "The House That Built Me" (Miranda Lambert), "I Got A Car" (George Strait), and "Meanwhile Back At Mama's" (Tim McGraw).

Tickets to "A Night of Texas" at the Ryman start at $25 and may be purchased HERE.

Dubbed "triumphant" (Music Row) and "critic's pick....arena ready country and Southern soul" (Nashville Scene), Watson's debut headlining date at country music's Mother Church was hugely successful, leading to the January 24 reprise. With headlining ticket counts nearing the half million mark and 100+ sellout shows covering 40 states and 8 countries, Watson is gearing up to for his full 2019 tour, which kicks off at the start of the new year!

Aaron Watson continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena. Watson's last studio album Vaquerolaunched into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart with his biggest career sales debut to date, and at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart. Texas Monthly, Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, Noisey, CMT, The Boot and more have all featured the new music. Vaquero is the follow up to his history-making album The Underdog, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, making him the first-ever independent, male country artist to debut in the coveted top spot. The album features "Outta Style," his record-breaking Top 10 hit on country music's national radio airplay charts and top 40 hit "Run Wild Horses." Watson wrapped 2018 with two new projects, Live at the World's Biggest Rodeo Show, Watson's 14th album and his first live album in nearly a decade, and his first ever Christmas collection, An Aaron Watson Family Christmas.

The singer/songwriter's rise has been paved by years of hard work and perseverance. Eighteen years later, over a dozen recorded albums, more than 2,500 shows in the U.S. and Europe, and a newly inked global distribution partnership with ADA Worldwide, the Texas native is determined to stay true to his roots and deliver music directly to his fans. Watson shared his journey with fans via a video that has racked up over 7.2 Million views and 50,000 shares, proving his phenomenal connection to fans.
