Dale Watson confirms two Dutch performances for 201902-09-2018
Dale Watson, keeper of the true country music flame, latest album Call Me Insane, was recorded in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines (Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, etc.). The 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.
Album highlights include Jonesin’ For Jones, a love song to the music of the legendary George Jones, A Day At A Time, about getting by by barely getting by; Call Me Insane, the album’s moody title track; Bug Ya For Love, a fun warning to all the single ladies, and Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies. (Yes, it is an answer song to the Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson hit.) Crocodile Tears is a tear-in-your-beer country song that sounds like an instant classic and Burden Of The Cross reveals Watson’s serious side.
Dubbed "the silver pompadoured, baritone beltin', Lone Star beer drinkin', honky-tonk hellraiser" by The Austin Chronicle sold out his last Amsterdam show and that's why he'll be back in 2019. Freshly announced today are the following two performance for Dale Watson in The Netherlands:
09/06: Amsterdam (NL) @ Paradiso Noord
10/06: Hengelo (NL) @ Ribs & Blues
