Biography

"I'd rather be an old fencepost in Texas than the king of Tennessee," Aaron Watson sings on "Fencepost," echoing the words of one of his favorite fellow Texans, Sam Houston. It's a song about a rising Texas country songwriter who gets the door slammed in his face by big-time Nashville record executives who underestimate him. Instead of giving up on his dreams, ...

Format: Audio CD
Watson's third full-length is an impressively confident album of Texas country, honky-tonk and swing. The thirteen original songs offer up both bona-fide twang (spurred along by producer Ray Benson) and more polished radio-ready crossover-pop. Watson's praise of his roots can seem a might self-conscious, but his joy as a country singer creates the sort of infectious likeability upon which George Strait's built a career.

Watson's songs include weepers ("What She Don't Know"), upbeat two-steppers ("If You're Not in Love"), and Western Swing ("Honky Tonkin' Around Texas"). He edges into pop with rockers like "Reckless," and rekindles the country-pop balladry of early Garth Brooks and Clint Black with "Mackenzie Park." It's a delicate balance, crossing over to a broader palette without losing one's roots, and Watson does so successfully.

Willie Nelson trades verses on the title tale of fading glory, and Dale Watson adds fuel to the trucking canon with "Diesel Driving Daddy." Amidst this Texas star-power, Aaron Watson remains the focal point, singing his finely crafted songs with enthusiasm and spirited tradition.

WOW!!! Aaron Watson blows me away again! I first heard some of his stuff on Lone Star Saturday Night and immediately went out and bought Shutupanddance, his second album. I couldn't wait until he released his third album,"The Honky Tonk Kid." It was more than worth the wait! This music is what country music ought to be! It doesn't take much to picture yourself back at Floore's Country Store or Gruene Hall listening to Asleep at the Wheel and Aaron honky tonk around Texas or as Aaron and Willie sing about a honky tonk kid. Go out and buy this album and soon you'll be sippin a Lone Star in Gruene Texas!

Amazing! This album even tops Shutup and Dance, which was one of my favorite CDs. I didn't think Aaron's stuff could get any better, but it did. So many fun and awesome songs. You know you're a hit when Willie Nelson records with you. Go out and buy this album and buy Shutup and Dance if you don't already have it. Aaron is keeping country at its roots. I love this music. Way to go Aaron, you managed to top a great album!

Great CD. This completes my Aaron Watson collection. This is not for the Hollywood Country loving' people- but more for people who like traditional, honky Tonk Texas Country.
