Aaron Watson is set to make a rousing return to Nashville’s iconic Ryman Auditorium on January 24th, 2019. As announced via Watson’s socials this week, opening the marquee date is a songwriter in-the-round lineup featuring some of his native Lonestar state’s songwriting royalty: Music Row hit makers Rodney Clawson, Liz Rose, and Tom Douglas.
Hailing from Gruver, TX, Clawson’s staggering 24 No. 1 songs include “I Saw God Today” (George Strait), “Amarillo Sky” (Jason Aldean) and “American Kids” (Kenny Chesney). Rose, born in Dallas, TX, had her first major hit with Gary Allan’s “Songs About Rain” and went on to co-write 16 songs with Taylor Swift, including “Teardrops on My Guitar,” “You Belong With Me,” and “Tim McGraw”plus the mega-hit “Girl Crush” (Little Big Town). Douglas, who previously called TX home before moving to Music City, has written numerous number one hits, including “The House That Built Me” (Miranda Lambert), “I Got A Car” (George Strait), and “Meanwhile Back At Mama’s” (Tim McGraw).
Tickets to “A Night of Texas” at the Ryman start at $25 and may be purchased HERE.
