Dale Watson is an in demand performer that travels the country doing more concerts than any artist we have interviewed. Pre-Covid concerts numbers reached 300 days per year and he currently still performs around 200-250 days per year. He was born in Birmingham, Alabama and was raised in a musically inclined family that loved country music. Dale started singing and writing at an early age and cut his first recording at age 14. His family moved to Texas and Dale eventually started playing local Houston clubs. He eventually moved to Los Angeles and embarked on an amazing career that has given him the opportunity to play in some of the most popular venues around the country, including “The Palomino Club,” and “The Continental Club”. His hit songs include 'You Pour It On and I Pour It Down,” ”One Tear at a Time,” and “I lie When I Drink.” His albums include his debut album, Cheatin' Heart Attack and Blessed Or Damned. His latest album is titled Call Me Insane.

Album highlights include “Jonesin’ For Jones,” a love song to the music of the legendary George Jones, “A Day At A Time,” about “getting by by barely getting by;” “Call Me Insane,” the album’s moody title track; “Bug Ya For Love,” a fun warning to all the single ladies, and “Mamas Don’t Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies.” (Yes, it is an answer song to the Waylon Jennings/Willie Nelson hit.) “Crocodile Tears” is a tear-in-your-beer country song that sounds like an instant classic and “Burden Of The Cross” reveals Watson’s serious side.

Not only does he regularly perform at the Grand Ole Opry, but he has toured with The Reverend Horton Heat as part of The BADDEST of The BAD Tour. He has been the focus of documentaries and was even in the John Mellencamp, Stephen King, and T Bone Burnett musical called “Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.” Dale currently resides in Marshall, Texas, but travels regularly to Austin to play at local venues including 'The Continental Club' and 'Broken Spoke.”

Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades. He has christened his brand of American roots “Ameripolitan” to differentiate it from current crop of Nashville-based pop country. The Alabama-born, Texas-raised Watson may be the hardest working entertainer today and is rapidly approaching legendary status.  He is a country music maverick, a true outlaw who stands alongside Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and George Strait as one of the finest country singers and songwriters from the Lone Star State.

About Dosey Doe

This 165 year old historical structure has been saved for its current purpose. Originally built as a tobacco barn in Kentucky, the 300-600 year old growth oak and birch massive beams are the foundation not only for a beautiful room for also for great acoustics. It is a place where memories are made. No need to run from restaurant to music hall, as here you have it all.

Their entrees are 'cooked from scratch' based on the season, special offerings of purveyors with the type of music of the night in mind. Their task is to offer a meal that would be the reason in and of itself to visit Dosey Doe. The presentation is note worthy and the creations are featured in several Cook Books from Canada to Texas.

Nationally recognized artists from around the world dominate the calendar here: from Jerry Jeff Walker to The Rippingtons, Dave Mason to Lee Roy Parnell, Clint Black to Bela Fleck, Leon Russell to Spyro Gyra, Steve Wariner to Hayes Carll, Roger Creager to Mel Tillis, Manhattan Transfer to Gallagher... up very close and personal. Most artists will stay to have photos taken and give autographs after the show. Many very rarely do it anywhere but here and almost everyone says it is one of their favorite rooms to play.

'I have played them all, big and small, but I have never played a place that sounds as good as Dosey Doe!' - Gary P Nunn

'I will gladly tell anyone that Carnegie Hall cannot compete with Dosey Doe,' - Michael Martin Murphy

'One of my all time top 5 places to have played,' - Marcia Ball

Come early and enjoy the room. Filled with Americana artifacts from the late 1800s to the early 1900s, there is plenty to see. Your hands touching the hand-hewn 2000 lb barn beams, your eyes filled with art, artifacts, signage from a simpler time, your taste buds excited from salad to dessert, and music so pure - up close and personal... all designed to 'Take You Away' and create a memory you will keep.

The BIG BARN is home to great causes such as RETT and SWING FOR A CURE; benefits where proceeds go to help children's illnesses. The BIG BARN is available for large wedding receptions, corporate functions, birthdays and anniversary parties.
