Written and recorded during the pandemic, Aaron Watson’s Unwanted Man takes the listener on a full circle journey from isolation and despair to loving redemption.
Unwanted Man is Aaron’s 14th studio album and his 18th overall. Every album Aaron has released since 2010 has landed firmly in the Top 10 on the Billboard Country album chart with three of them debuting in the Top 5. Aaron wrote or co-wrote all eleven songs on Unwanted Man, showcasing both his trademark love songs with “When I See You” and “Nothing On You,” as well as his popular classic up-tempo romps on “Cheap Seats” and “Heck Of A Song.”
For the past 20+ years, Watson has achieved success on his own terms, hand building a career through honest songwriting, relentless touring and nearly twenty self-released albums. His independent Texas spirit and strong work ethic are emblematic of the western lifestyle, virtues which have taken him from humble honky-tonks of Texas to multiple sold-out tours around the world. Rolling Stone calls him "Texas country's reigning indie underdog" and The Boot says Aaron is "a pure expression of his traditional country ethos.”
His 2015 album The Underdog was the first independent album in the history of country music to top the Billboard Country Album Chart. Aaron Watson’s career is perhaps summed up best by Forbes, who says he’s "one of country music’s biggest DIY success stories."
A self-made businessman, chart-topper, and road warrior whose authenticity has made him a country music staple, Aaron Watson is here to stay.
