“In highschool I put my lips up to the mic for the first time, and I haven't stopped singing since.”
— Rob Watts
Rob found his love for country music at a young age, as he recalls his parents always having it on at the cottage.
He revisits how he came into the world of music; "When I was 10, I played guitar for 2 months, then got bored with it, and eventually dropped it all together. Some years went by, and I found myself playing my stepdad's old Fender Stratocaster every day when I'd get home from school. Teaching myself how to play basic chords, and I really got addicted to it. Guitar turned into drums, drums turned into piano, piano back to guitar, and in high school I put my lips to the mic for the first time, and I haven't stopped singing since."
Formed in May of 2015, the members of the band are humbled to have played well over 200 shows, including opening for artists such as Thomas Rhett, Brett Young, Aaron Pritchett, Jason McCoy & The Road Hammers, The Washboard Union, Meghan Patrick, River Town Saints, Bobby Wills, Cold Creek County, George Canyon, Dan Davidson and more, as well as sharing the same stage as legends such as Alan Jackson, Florida Georgia Line, Dallas Smith and more.
In 2018, Rob and his band made a career dream come true by playing the Main Stage at Boots and Hearts, kicking off the final day of the festival.
The "Rob Watts Band" pride themselves on a high energy, crowd-involved, live performance and put their own spin on what's now considered modern country music by highlighting some of the key elemental instruments used in classic country, while keeping the tempo up, and the songs catchy and fun.
2019 will be a big year for Rob and the band, as they enter negotiations to play bigger and better shows and festivals every day.
