Aaron Watson will receive the 2020 Spirit of Texas Award from the Texas Cowboy Hall Of Fame at its induction ceremonies on January 16. Induction into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is the highest honor bestowed on individuals who have shown excellence in competition, business and support of rodeo and the western lifestyle in Texas.
One of the premier events prior to the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo, the induction ceremony will be held at Billy Bob’s Texas. Presented by Bobby Norris Farm & Ranch Realty and The Norris Foundation, the event includes cocktails, a silent auction and cowboy cuisine prior to the 7:00 p.m. induction ceremony. Proceeds benefit the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame & Museum and its ongoing education programs and Western lifestyle preservation efforts.
“If I can look back and think of the two things that have defined my career more than anything else — it’s Texas and Cowboys,” says Watson. “To be elected to the Texas Cowboy Hall Of Fame is hard to put into words but it’s a humbling honor – especially when I see the names of my some of my heroes like Nolan Ryan, George Strait and Willie Nelson on that list. I’ve always said my music isn’t about honors and awards but this one is special. What an evening it will be in January for the induction and I know I’ll be counting down the days.”
