Aaron Watson is set to return to the Ryman Auditorium on Jan. 24, and he’s invited some of the Lonestar state’s hitmakers to open the show for him. The opening songwriter in-the-round lineup for “A Night Of Texas At The Ryman” will include stories and songs by Rodney Clawson, Liz Rose, and Tom Douglas.
Hailing from Gruver, Texas, Clawson’s 24 No. 1 hits include “I Saw God Today” (George Strait), “Amarillo Sky” (Jason Aldean) and “American Kids” (Kenny Chesney). Rose, born in Dallas, had her first 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 Little Big Town’s mega-hit “Girl Crush.” Douglas, who previously called Texas home before moving to Nashville, has penned numerous 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.
