Proceeds and Donations to Benefit the Reno Rodeo Foundation’s Denim Drive
Country star Aaron Watson will be packing the Celebrity Showroom at John Ascuaga’s Nugget on December 7th, and you can get in for FREE!
To get a free ticket on the night of the show, bring in a donation for the Reno Rodeo Foundation’s Denim Drive. We will be accepting NEW denim, NEW socks and NEW underwear for abused and neglected infants, children and teens who have been rescued from unsafe homes in Northern Nevada. There will be a limit of one ticket per person, while supplies last.
You can also purchase a ticket for just $12, and proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the Denim Drive. To purchase a ticket, please call (775) 356-3300, or 1-800-648-1177.
It's no secret that Texas has always had its own kind of music and its own kind of music business to go along with it. But even by the wide-open standards of the Lone Star State, the ongoing career and success of Aaron Watson are something else. With an uncanny knack for mixing great songs and unforgettable performances with good, old-fashioned business savvy, Watson has grown – night-by-night, fan-by-fan, album-by-album, one honky-tonk stage at a time – into an unstoppable force in Texas Music with his sights firmly set on the national stage.
With the October 12th release of The Road & The Rodeo – his tenth under his own independent banner, Big Label Records – the Abilene-based artist steps up to the plate and knocks it out of the park with a career-defining collection of 15 pure-country songs that celebrate his musical journey over the past 10 years. To Watson, the album represents a creative career high. To everyone within hearing distance, The Road & The Rodeo represents the freshest musical breeze to blow out of Texas in a long, long time.
"My biggest fear when I record an album is that it's the same all the way through," Watson says. "It's very important for me to throw in some curve balls and some sliders. Pitchers love to throw the fastball, but you've got to throw in some changeups once in a while for those fastballs to be effective.”
It was very early on when Watson learned the importance of fans – and how much he truly valued them. “I treat my fans like family, like royalty,” he says. To this day, no matter the time or size of the crowd, he still lingers after every concert to hug the audience and shake hands. “I sign anything and everything they’d like, and there isn’t one person who leaves the show thinking I don’t appreciate them.”
Ask Watson what inspires him – and his music – and he’ll list three things: family, fans and faith. He has an undying and steadfast dedication to all of these pillars , and every one influences the other.
