– After a long road to recovery from vocals issues that caused him to be off the road from touring since mid-April, Aaron Watson has finally been relieved of vocal rest and returns to the road on Thursday.
"It was definitely a frustrating and scary time, especially in the beginning not knowing what was going on with my voice, but that something was definitely wrong," Watson said. "I'm so grateful to have had the best care and prayers from the best fans to get me through these past few months."
Watson suffered from a granuloma in his throat that left him unable to sing. Watson also was at times speechless as he sought treatment and therapy from specialists.
In over 20 years of his career, Watson has never before been forced to cancel a string of shows.
"I'm really excited to be back out on the road, playing music with the band and seeing all the fans. It feels really great to be on stage again and I'm looking forward to all the dates we have coming up performing across the country," said Watson.
