The more I think I know the more I realize how much I still need to learn. I had no idea who Aaron Watson was until this week when his latest album debuted in the top ten on the Billboard Country Albums chart. That’s a big time way to get attention for yourself because it’s not easy getting a high charting album.
It turns out that Aaron Watson is a big time star down in Texas and now it appears he could become a big time star throughout the country. Here is the single from his new album including the video.
Raise Your Bottle – Aaron Watson
As always the first thing I look for with a new song is the melody. There is no doubt this song has a great melody. For a seasoned singing veteran like Aaron Watson it’s obvious he has the skills to find a good song. This track has a great melody and is one you can sing along with as you listen to even the first time.
This has been a career a long time in the making. In fact, Aaron Watson is already a star so there’s really nothing he hasn’t seen. Those artists down in Texas build huge followings and there really is a separate music movement happening down there all the time. Occasionally Texas lets the rest of us have one of those artists and I’m glad they do because folks like Pat Green and Casey Donahew and Aaron Watson are great. I’m glad we get to hear them in the mainstream world.
What do you think of Aaron Watson and his new song?
