David Letterman ordered his assistant to book Honky Tonk Hero Dale Watson after hearing songs from El Rancho Azul on his car radio. Watson & The Lonestars are scheduled to perform June 24th on The Late Show.
May in Texas may be shorts and t-shirt weather, but in Minnesota its still snowboots and longjohns – here’s Dale after a May 2013 Minneapolis performance accepting the very first El Rancho Azul 8-Track tape from Red House Records’ Jon Rodine and Luke Welsh. It fades down during “Quick, Quick, Slow, Slow” to change to track 3, which Dale hilariously simulated live during the evening’s performance.
El Rancho Azul (released January 29, 2013), was recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales Studio and debuted on Billboard’s Top Current Country Albums chart – a first in Watson’s career and a first for the 30-year old Red House label.
