One of the coolest things to happen in country music in 2015 was back in February when Aaron Watson had a #1 album with The Underdog.
Aaron has been doing the independent thing based out of his home state of Texas for a really long time. The big labels just aren’t right for some people and it’s really cool when you see someone work hard for so long to get recognized in a big way with a #1 record.
So that was really cool and we’re fans of Aaron here at CML.
Here is the next single from that record.
Getaway Truck – Aaron Watson
To me this sounds like exactly what country fans would want to hear on country radio. But I don’t know if that will be the case with this one. We’ll have to see.
My interpretation is that it’s a love song. You have a guy that is declaring his love for the girl he cares about most in the world. He wants to take her away from any pain she’s been having in life and make sure she gets the good life that she deserves.
I think it’s really about a girl that’s been in a bad relationship with a guy and needs to get out of it. And that’s where the new guy singing the song comes in and saves the day.
Other than the lyrics the melody is really catchy. I was singing along with this one well before the song reached the middle and that was on the first listen. Just a really good country song right here.
It’s hard to pick a chart position for this one. Aaron has only had one single on mainstream country radio. I’m sure this one will be a major hit in Texas and really that’s where some good traditional country music is being made today.
What do you think of this new song?
