Texas country singer Aaron Watson is gearing up to release his eleventh career studio album early next year.

Vaquero, due out on Feb. 24, features sixteen new songs co-written by Watson, along with Mac McAnally, Leslie Satcher, Kendell Marvel and more. Longtime fans of Watson’s modern yet traditional country sound are sure to instantly connect with this latest project. Much like his breakthrough record, 2015’s No. 1 hit The Underdog, Watson promises a collection of music focused around life, love and family. New tracks include “Mariano’s Dream,” nostalgic ode “They Don’t Make ‘Em Like They Used To” and “Diamonds & Daughters,” a sweet tribute to his own daughter.

Although we’ll all have to wait a few more weeks to hear Vaquero in its entirety, fans can already hear a sneak peek of what’s to come. Watson just released the record’s lead single, “Outta Style,” which is currently climbing up the charts.
