Austin’s ‘King of Honky-tonk’ Headlines Foundation Celebration

Honky tonk hero and country music maverick Dale Watson will bring to the Celebration stage his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music that carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson. Dubbed the “silver pompadoured, baritone-beltin’, Lone Star beer drinkin’, honky-tonk hellraiser” by The Austin Chronicle, Watson is considered one the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State. A member of the Austin Music Hall of Fame, Watson has released more than 20 albums and performs more than 300 dates per year. Click here to preview Watson's music.
