Dale Watson On Mountain Stage

Dale Watson.
Dale Watson.

Dale Watson makes his first visit to Mountain Stage, recorded live on West Virginia's State Capitol grounds in Charleston. A fearless practitioner of country's Bakersfield sound, which was first championed by Merle Haggard and Buck Owens, Watson has spent more than two decades touring the world one bar, club and honky tonk at a time.

Born in Alabama, Watson was raised near Houston, and became serious about music after moving to Los Angeles. He played with the house band in Hollywood's famed Palomino Club, moved to Nashville, then settled in Austin, where his music found its most favorable reception. He's joined here by his own road band the Lone Stars, which features Don Pawlak on pedal steel guitar, along with Mike Bernal on drums and Chris Crepps on upright bass.
