Aaron Watson Million Dollar Music Fest Kick- Off Show!May 2, 2023
AARON WATSON TO KICK OFF MILLION DOLLAR MUSIC FEST WEEKEND AT THE MILLION DOLLAR COWBOY BAR ON THURSDAY, MAY 25TH!
JACKSON, WY – For more than twenty years, Aaron Watson has traveled the land as country music’s ultimate underdog troubadour—a truly independent artist with the spirit of the American frontier in his veins. On May 25th, he’ll bring his honkytonk Texas-country sounds to the iconic stage of The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar as a part of Old West Days. The ticketed show will serve as the kick-off to the Fourth Annual Million Dollar Music Fest weekend.
Not only has Watson had a long history of sold-out shows across the country, but he has also found a lasting place on country radio—no small feat for an artist without the promotion machine of a major record label. His 2015 release, Underdog made him the first independent male artist to debut at Number One on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart with a self-released, independently distributed and promoted album. And another five album releases have cracked the Top Ten. His show at The Cowboy will feature all his chart-topping singles as well as hits from his latest release, Unwanted Man. Fans will witness why Forbes calls him “one of country music’s biggest DIY success stories.”
CMT’s Next Woman of Country 2022 class member, Jenna Paulette, will open the show. A limited number of reserved VIP tables will be available for $100 - $150 per seat, and general admission tickets will be $50. The dance floor will be open to all ticket holders. Tickets will go on sale May 5th at 10am (MT) and may be purchased online at cowboybarjh.com. Doors will open at 7pm, with the show starting at 8pm.
The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar, about to enter its 90th year, is widely regarded as a national treasure and is regularly named one of the top honkytonks in the country. The Million Dollar Cowboy Bar is committed to continuing its rich tradition of hosting the most iconic names in country music. #saddleup.
