Dale Watson (born October 7, 1962 in Birmingham, Alabama) is an American alternative country/Texas Country singer, guitarist, songwriter, and self-published author based in Austin, Texas. He is championed “Ameripolitan” as a new genre of original music and positioned himself as a tattooed, stubbornly independent outsider who is interested in recording authentic country music. As a result, his record sales have been slow, but he has become a favorite of critics and alt-country fans.
