Featured Performer: Aaron Watson is a country singer whose 17-year career spans a dozen albums and more than 2,500 shows in the U.S. and Europe. His new album, Vaquero, is a bold album that confidently draws from Texas’ storied musical melting pot: dancehall shuffles, dustbowl narratives, Tejano and more fill the record. In writing the new album, Watson felt especially drawn to the idea of the vaquero, the original Spanish horseman that set the foundation for the North American cowboy, a solitary figure with a legendary work ethic.
