Dubbed “the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin’, Lone Star beer drinkin’, honky-tonk hellraiser” by The Austin Chronicle, Dale Watson sat in with Jimmy Kimmel’s house band as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) during SXSW 2015. Keeper of the true country music flame, and recording his latest album Call Me Insane with veteran producer Lloyd Maines, this Austin-based honky-tonker carries on in the tradition of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson with his “Ameripolitan” brand of American roots music. Presented in collaboration with The House of Songs, don’t miss this Willie Nelson-approved country music star.
“I’m one of Dale’s biggest fans.” –Willie Nelson
