Call Me Insane wwas released June 9 via Red House/Ameripolitan Records on CD, digital, and vinyl. Dale recorded the album in Austin with veteran producer Lloyd Maines (Robert Earl Keen, Jerry Jeff Walker, etc.) and brought in his ace touring band, His Lone Stars, to capture his live sound. Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades and coined the term “Ameripolitan” music to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country.
Since the release of El Rancho Azul in 2013, Watson’s profile has risen considerably via appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC), The Late Show with David Letterman (CBS), Austin City Limits and The Sun Sessions (PBS) and as a guest on NPR’s American Routes and Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me along with profiles on NPR All Things Considered, the New York Times and more. A veteran touring artist and consummate entertainer, he is on the road more than 300 days a year. He also put his money where his heart is and took over ownership of two struggling Texas honky-tonks, the Little Longhorn Saloon in Austin (home of Chicken $#!+ Bingo) and The Big T Roadhouse in St. Hedwigs (outside San Antonio).
