Brett Watts is a local award winning singer/songwriter/poet who is one of the brightest talents in the Texas music songwriting industry of today. Growing up in Arlington, TX, his musical writing influences developed while working on ranches and riding rodeo during the many summers he spent living the life of a real cowboy. His writing style is planted firmly in the songs and poems of the American West. He blends his stories about rodeos, cowboys and trail drives with "traditional country" and "cowboy folk" melodies that comes from the heart of a true cowboy. While his melodies pay homage to some traditional country music, he is not, by far, limited to that in his writing ability. Instead of the so-called "Nashville cookie cutter cowboy crap," Brett's writing fits in with the "Real Deals of Texas Music," such as Don Edwards, Red Steagall, Robert Earl Keen and Michael Martin Murphey, to mention a few.
Brett's lyrics are emotionally full of strong realism listeners can identify with. His clear Texas accented vocals and accompanying live acoustic performances capture his audience's attention and leaves them in anticipation of his next song, delivered in his own distinctive style. Brett states, "I want to put Western back into Country Music."
