You’ve heard your humble Austin Music Minute hostess brag about this before – the man, the myth, the Texas troubadour legend, Dale Watson doesn’t mince words when it comes to putting real music out there. And by “real,” please refer to the word Watson created that best fits the sound: Ameripolitan, or music with a prominent roots influence. Instead of dismissing or disregarding real country music, or the artists who started it all, the purveyors of Ameripolitan bring it to the forefront and never let you forget your roots.
Sign me up. Catch Dale Watson & His Lone Stars tonight at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave., at 10 p.m. Get rid of them Monday blues and raise a bottle. Cheers. Recommended
