Dale has flown the flag for classic honky-tonk for over two decades. He’s 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.


Bio Coming Soon



Born Manuel Antonio Pagan, in San Juan, Puerto Rico on February 17, 1973. His father was a prominent record producer and artist manager, his mother, a professional dancer, music is in his genes. Got a hand-me-down drum kit from his uncle when he was nine years old, and he was hooked! Paid his way through college playing with multiple bands, including a five-year stint with Los Pies Negros, an internationally recognized Ska band.  In the late nineties he moved to Texas and fell madly in love with the sounds of classic country music.  One night, while barhopping in Austin, TX., he came across Dale Watson and His Lone Stars at the Continental Club.  Right then and there he knew, that was the band he wanted to be in.  It took a while, but in the Summer of 2020, that dream became a reality!
