DALE WATSON

& His Lonestars

Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades. He's christened his brand of American Roots "Ameripolitan" to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country. The Alabama born, Texas-raised Watson may be the hardest working entertainer today and is rapidly approaching legendary status. He is a country music maverick, a true outlaw that stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lonestar State.
