Troubadour Dale Watson coming to Brass Rail
A big shoutout to the Brass Rail as Tuesday, Oct. 22, they welcome Texas troubadour Dale Watson to town.
Watson’s self-coined “Ameripolitan” genre is an amalgam of honky-tonk, rockabilly, Western swing, and outlaw music that carries on the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson. He has stayed true to that over his 40-plus-year career by ignoring trends and focusing on songs from heart and soul.
Tattooed and always dressed to the nines, Watson is a true entertainer that will be sure to take folks at the Rail on one hell of a musical ride.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 day of show, and can be purchased via eventbrite.com.
