Country singer Aaron Watson is coming in concert to Chattanooga on May 10 at the Signal. 

Review for Aaron Watson: 

In the true spirit of the cowboy, “pioneering independent” Aaron Watson wrapped 2017 with a record-breaking Top 10 on the national radio charts as his self-penned “Outta Style” hitting No. 10 BB/No. 8 MB. At 50 weeks, “Outta Style” marks the longest trek to the coveted spot in the history of Billboard’s Country Airplay Chart.  The Texas troubadour ended his banner year with his album Vaquero earning one of the 10 biggest album debuts of the year in country music and a number of “Best Album of 2017” nods, including Whiskey Riff,  the No. 1 spot on Taste of Country’s year end list,  proclaiming the project “a rich collection of cowboy poetry.” 

An epic year on the road which included headlining shows for 50,000 plus at RodeoHouston and a historic “Night of Texas Music” at the Ryman, Watson wrapped 2017 with three sold-out nights at the Lone Star State’s oldest dancehall, Gruene Hall, Dec. 21-23.  He continues his tour in support of Vaquero with a slew of 2018 dates, highlighted by a hometown arena show in Abilene, a Texas Independence Day show in New York City, and Stagecoach in Indio.  

Aaron has sold more than a half-million headlining tickets in the past 18 months with 100+ sellouts, covering 40 states and eight countries.  He has been touring for 18 years, 13 albums, 2,700+shows, and he has done it all on his own without the help of a major label deal. 

Hot on the heels of his first and record-breaking Billboard Top 10 hit, “Outta Style,” he just launched his new single- the self-penned follow up “Run Wild Horses”.

Roy Exum: The Coach Who Said ‘No’

I couldn’t tell you the first time I met John Gagliardi … 30 years ago? 40? … and I never saw him nearly enough. He was a Division III football coach at some monastery of a place in Minnesota and that’s a long way from the Southeastern Conference. Our orbits rarely overlapped but somewhere down the line we were at the same table for dinner. Once that happened, it seemed like the ... (click for more)
