Chris Watson is an amazing musician from Denton, TX. I had the opportunity to speak with him as he was putting the finishing touches on his new album. Chris told me about how influential his father was in shaping his musical identity. We talked about the blues and some of his earliest experiences. Chris takes control of every aspect of his career and loves meeting people at his shows. He shared some insights on the local music scene and the contribution of musician from Texas on the national level. He shared some of his experiences with blues jams, and told me some funny audience stories from his shows. I am looking forward to his new album. Chris said he would come back on the show to talk about it when it is released. You can learn more about Chris at http://chriswatsonband.com/fr_home.cfm.
