Aaron Watson is a Lone Star State country-music crooner who has released eight albums on his own independent label. After a college injury ended his budding baseball career, Watson traded in pop flies for the pop charts and began learning to play guitar, quickly composing his own country creations. His newest groove compilation, Deep in the Heart of Texas, is a live album featuring rip-roaring tracks such as "Love Makin' Song," "Heyday Tonight," and "Except for Jessie." Watson's down-home hits may provoke reckless boot stomping, spur spinning, hootin', and, in select cases, even hollerin'. Doctors advise audience members not to operate heavy machinery while under the influence of Watson's music.

The six-headed hydra of spontaneous comedy known as Four Day Weekend has been wreaking havoc on North Texas doldrums since 1997. Critically adored by the metroplex’s most prominent presses, the group squelches laughter droughts with their weekend bouts of unscripted hilarity. The professional troupe of cut-ups, many with film and Second City Conservatory of Chicago credentials, happily share the tricks of the trade in their four-level training center.

Consider activities that take about an hour to complete: a trip to the grocery store, a relaxing massage, watching a favorite television show. Rarely, if ever, do haunted houses fall into this category—unless you're talking about Cutting Edge Haunted House in Fort Worth. In 2009, the attraction’s length caught the attention of Guinness World Records, which deemed Cutting Edge the longest walk-through haunted house in the world.
Looming in a section of the city dubbed “Hell’s Half Acre,” Cutting Edge populates an abandoned meatpacking plant that was originally built in the late 1920s. The plant’s equipment is still fully operational, and still resides inside—only today, it processes humans. To escape such a grisly fate, guests must grope through a multi-storied labyrinth replete with unthinkable horrors such as live monsters, realistic special effects, and salsas made in New York City. Cutting Edge is so terrifying, in fact, that it even earned the top spot on HauntedHouseRatings.com's list of the best haunted attractions in 2013.
