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 crowd cheers as a rider clad in Western gear thunders his horse over the dirt floor of the stadium, gracefully casting a lasso to loop in a calf. Minutes later, a trick rider smiles brilliantly before she elicits gasps by dangling vertically in her saddle. This showmanship has been going on for more than 100 years on the turf of the Cowstown Coliseum](http://gr.pn/PrZFzb), where Stockyards Championship Rodeo holds its Western-style rodeo events. Though trick riding, roping, and bull riding are the stars of the Fodor's-recommended show, cowboy culture can be found throughout the stadium. Live country-western music provides the soundtrack, and occasional visits from singing cowboys or beat-boxing bulls add an air of spectacle to the events. Even the panel of judges gets into the spirit by wearing cowboy hats.

History seemingly hangs in the humid Fort Worth air. And one of the city’s most legendary drinking establishments, the White Elephant Saloon, has its own provenance. The original mens-only saloon was located in Fort Worth’s dangerous Hells Half Acre (otherwise known as the red light district) in the 1890s. Luke Short, Wild West gunfighter/gambler owned and operated the saloon. Short was a friend to famous figures like “Doc” Holiday, Wyatt Earp, and Bat Masterson. There were more than a few gunfights at Short’s establishment. In the 1970s, the saloon was moved to the historic Stockyards district. Today, the White Elephant Saloon is owned by celebrity Fort Worth chef, Tim Love. Fascinating fact: In the TV show, “Walker Texas Ranger”, the exterior view of “C.D.’s Bar and Grill was actually the White Elephant Saloon. The saloon is filled with history. Drink at the brass bar, two-step on the real wooden floor, have your boots shined – and soak in the history of Fort Worth, the Stockyards and the White Horse Saloon. If only walls could talk.

You've got your pick of four great views at Coyote Drive-In. There are three screens, each of which show a double feature every night?but there's also a panoramic look at downtown Fort Worth, nestled along the Trinity River. The drive-in's peaceful location illustrates the mission of its founders, who envisioned their theater as a retro-style escape from the modern world. Just because it's old-fashioned, however, doesn't mean Coyote Drive-In lacks conveniences. A covered canteen area provides guests with concessions from classic popcorn and cotton candy, to foot-long corn dogs and thin-crust bacon cheeseburger pizzas. There's even a bar stocked with big-screen televisions, craft beers, and bottles of red, white, and sparkling wine.
