Aaron Watson continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena. Watson’s newest release and highly-anticipated albumVaquerolaunched 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. Vaquerois 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 the lead single “Outta Style,” his record-breaking Top 10 hit on country music’s national radio airplay charts. His recently released self-penned new single, “Run Wild Horses,” is top 40 and climbing on the country radio charts. Live at the World’s Biggest Rodeo Show, the “pioneering independent’s” (Cowboys & Indians) 14thalbum and his first live album in nearly a decade, is set to release on August 24, 2018, marking the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey’s landfall. $1.41 from each album sold will benefit the Rebuild Texas Fund, in recognition of the widespread devastation across Watson’s beloved home state. Recorded live in front of 65,000 fans on the opening night of the 2017 Rodeo Houston, the album is particularly poignant to the Texas-born-and-bred singer/songwriter. Watson’srise 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.

Jon Stork – Born and raised on the coastal plains of Texas, comes a young man who has been carrying around his guitars since he was able enough to bring them along. His sound is not placed in any one category and the same can be said about his audience. Songs and stories of people and places have spilled out in lyrical form and conveyed into a musical show, which can only be described after being a part of it. Beasley, Texas is the one light town that helped shape the rising artist, Jon Stork, as he found his way into the life of music, he is now living. Growing up on a ranch with a musical family and being a middle child, you can say that playing and singing seemed to come naturally for the young cattleman, as he set out to learn more about this dream that he had no plans on running down. Throughout childhood and into his young adult life, Stork attributes church to his feeling and passion behind the music, saying-“I was raised in the church and brought upon praise/gospel songs. There aren’t many other places or ways you can learn to feel the music in that way.” Using these lessons helped this songwriter find his style and sound as he began to spread his wings. Through high school and into college, the music continued to grow and take root in what turned out to be just the start of what was to come. While attending college at the University of Houston, on his days/nights off, you could most likely find this young Stork playing on a back patio or serving drinks behind a bar. That was the case until he was told to make a choice between playing music or having a job. The choice was made and the job was lost. Hitting the pavement a little harder, along with a pen to paper, “In Your Radio” was released in May of 2017. With even less time, Stork came out of the gate strong with his first single, “Rodeo Blues”, in December 2017. Getting his band and sound right for the next ten months is what he did. Playing all over Texas and some outside of the state, the words began to spread. In October of 2018, the second radio single hit the charts, as“One Night Stand” began to grab the attention of people from all over. Today, the culmination of stories (turned into songs) has resulted in something people are going to have to listen to, twice. Releasing his first full-length album, “Radio Cowboy”, in September 2019, Stork is eager for new music to hit the listeners’ ears, saying–“I wanted to make sure there was something for everyone on this album and I think we hit our mark.”
