Ryan Beaver and Jack Ingram warmed up the crowd both playing their soul-filled country music, bringing the laughs and good vibes to the room. Ingram who was a co-writer on Miranda Lambert’s heartbreaking single, “Tin Man” ended his set with his meticulous version, the crowd was hushed, hung on every last word.

Switching gears, Watson took the stage for his high energy set which included songs from his two-decade-long career like “Freight Train”, “Getaway Truck” and “That’s Why God Loves Cowboys” as well as a cover of George Strait’s classic “Amarillo By Morning”.

A highlight of the night was during “That Look” when the crowd cheered as a man got down on one knee to propose, of course, she said yes then Watson invited them to the front of the stage to get a selfie.  ” Everybody get your hands up! This is their engagement party!” he yelled.

Performing his latest single which he wrote for his wife, “Run Wild Horses” as well as closing the night with his smash hit “Outta Style” Texas was well represented in New York City and it was the perfect way to celebrate Texas Independence Day.
