Watson announces new disc

Friday, January 4, 2019 – Aaron Watson announced today he would release a new disc, "Red Bandana," this year. Watson also released a new single, "Kiss That Girl Goodbye."

Watson wrote the uptempo song himself. As usual, Watson will release the album on his own BIG Label Records and distributed by ADA Worldwide.

The song includes the lines:
"That boy can kiss that girl goodbye
Just like a red eyed flight
Two tail lights in the night
You're gonna spread your wings and fly
That boy can kiss that girl goodbye
Just like a west bound train
You're drinking cheap champagne
You got no more tears to cry
And you're long gone like a whisper in the wind
That boy can kiss that girl goodbye"

"'Kiss That Girl Goodbye' is my brand spanking new single and one of the 20 songs that I wrote for my upcoming album, Red Bandana," said Watson. "I wanted to come out of the gates with a fast, fun, boot-stomper that sounds great on radio and gets the fans dancing. I actually wrote it late one night after meeting a girl at my show who was in tears after being stood up on a date. My little girl Jolee Kate loves it and says it has GIRL POWER! Thanks to all of you for supporting me, my music and my family."

Watson has announced a run of 40 concerts by Memorial Day.

An Aaron Watson Family Christmas CD review - An Aaron Watson Family Christmas
When Aaron Watson titled his holiday album "An Aaron Watson Family Christmas," he wasn't kidding about the "family" part. Although his children - Jake, Jack and Jolee - are advertised as making cameo appearances, they're actually an essential part. "Christmas Time Is Here," for example, is an all-kids rendition. Watson's kids give this album special charm, while his singing and playing bring the traditional skill. This album includes a couple of new songs. »»»

Vaquero CD review - Vaquero
Independent singer/songwriter Aaron Watson's "Vaquero" is an ambitious 16-song mix of Texas country and mainstream Nashville with mostly good results. The strongest tracks are those that embrace the Tex Mex style of the title track, which imparts some sound advice delivered by an "old Mexican cowboy" the singer meets in a bar ("He said don't leave your beer in the hot Texas Sun/ Don't argue with a woman while she's holding a gun" and »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Sweeney maintains her musical integrity – Sunny Sweeney has gone the big label route and even earned a hit with "From a Table Away," but truth be told, she's better off without the baggage of the bigs, especially given the consistent quality and musical vision that was so clearly and admirably on display on this evening. When the East Texas native started her career, she was... »»»
Concert Review: Live, Shelley proves she's the real deal – After the concert, Joan Shelley was greeted by a fan at the near sold-out club who had never seen her before.

The fan walked away mighty impressed -based on her comments - and it was easy to see why.... »»»
