There's just enough drinking and cheating songs around without me adding to them. Unless you've got something better than "Misery and Gin" by Merle Haggard, you're beating a dead horse.— Aaron Watson
The most fascinating Aaron Watson quotes that will transform you to a better person
I'll work to maintain my work ethic out on the road, playing my shows, giving 110%, keeping God first, my family second, and treating my fans like royalty.
I don't understand how a musician can play 90 minutes on stage and then not dedicate a little bit of time to hang out at their merch table. It's not like digging a ditch or something; you're standing there thanking people for coming out to see you.
I put everything in God's hands, asking him to give me strength and understanding. I asked him to help me to be strong for my family and that he would continue to take care of us. One day, shortly after that, I woke up really inspired.
I still have a lot of passion for music, but I would quit it tomorrow if that's what my family needed me to do. I'm sure I'd miss it, but it's a job.
I think most performers are just lazy.
I just never gave anything else much thought after music.
I just hope that I'm doing what God intended me to do, and that's all.
I wouldn't want someone assuming that some negative song has some truth between me and my wife. There was a song that one of my buddies sent me, and it was an awesome song. It was about this woman who had fallen in love with a man that wasn't her husband, and I love everything about the song except for the fact that I personally cannot sing it. It would kill me if someone thought I was singing it about my wife.
There might be some of them that don't care.
To me, it's important that my fans know how much I appreciate them.
Once I made up my mind that music was what I wanted to do, I never looked back.
I always tell people that my primary job is being a dad and husband.
Music is just what pays the bills.
Family is fun, way more fun than music.
I'm living the dream. I've got a big tour bus, an incredible band, a big house, and a family that are all taken care of through my music. I've got a beautiful wife and three beautiful kids.
I want to keep my fan base supplied with a steady chain of music.
I couldn't write a song to save my life.
I wouldn't say that I started to panic, but I was definitely getting frustrated. I couldn't even cross a t or dot an i.
I keep a pretty tight grip on my schedule and I compare it a lot to a fireman's - a four-on then four-off type of deal.
I'd like to think that throughout my career whatever my current record is has 110% of my best.
You should work at everything you do and try to perfect it as best you can.
I would rather have 100,000 fans for a lifetime than a million for a couple years.
