Country singer Aaron Watson to be inducted to Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame

Posted: Updated:

Country singer-songwriter Aaron Watson will be a part of the the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame's 2020 class. 

In addition to that, the native of the Lone Star State was also honored with Texas Cowboy HOF's Spirit of Texas Award. 

"If I can look back and think of the two things that have defined my career more than anything else — it’s Texas and cowboys," Watson said in a statement. "I’ve always said my music isn’t about honors and awards, but this one is special."

"Inclusion in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame is the highest honor we bestow on individuals who have shown excellence in competition, business and support of rodeo and the western lifestyle in Texas," its website states. 

Watson is one of eight inductees for upcoming year. The list also includes Women's Pro Rodeo world champion Lari Dee Guy, philanthropists and ranch managers Charles and Kit Moncrief and former American Quarter Horse Association president R.H. (Steve) Stevens Jr. 

The induction ceremony will take place in the Fort Worth Stockyards on Jan. 16.
