Texas country star Aaron Watson has added new tour dates to his 2017 schedule, with domestic and international stops ranging from May through November.

Texas is (obviously) the hottest spot for Watson; he'll perform in the Lone Star State nine times over four months — more than any other state in the U.S. He also adds two high-profile Nashville gigs with CMA Fest on June 10 and his first headlining appearance at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Oct. 4. Internationally, Watson will be making stops in Canada, Norway and Spain before completing his tour (as of May 22) by headlining the PBR World Finals in Las Vegas on Nov. 2.

Becoming known as country music's independent force, Watson watched his latest album Vaquero debut a No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and his lead single "Outta Style," is also currently in the Top 40 (No. 30) on the Billboard Country Airplay chart.
