Amarillo's very own Aaron Watson is stepping up this weekend and donating to wildfire victims all over the panhandle. Watson says that all proceeds from ANY of his CD's purchased through iTunes this weekend will go to a special donation fund. He says that this tragedy hits particularly close to home for him as a close friend lost his home and property during the fires.

While I was releasing Vaquero & playing Rodeo Houston, I learned that a friend of mine lost his home like so many others have in the wild fires that have ravaged West Texas this last week. Human lives have been lost, livestock and grasslands have been destroyed. Our ranchers and farmers are suffering and they need our help. West Texas is my home. -Aaron Watson, Facebook.
