Country music fans can catch the long-awaited music video for Aaron Watson’s hit, “Run Wild Horses,” which exclusively premiered on Thursday, June 28th on CMT’s 24/7 digital music channel, CMT Music. The sweet clip features his wife of 15 years, Kimberly @MrsAaronWatson, as she makes her music video debut.
The real life love story, directed by Benjamin Ranzinger, was filmed in the Watson’s hometown of Buffalo Gap, Texas (population 468) at one of their favorite spots, the Perini Ranch. The romantic clip portrays the antithesis of a one-night stand, highlighting the couple’s staying power and ability to keep the spark in their marriage.
“Run free as the wind my passion on your skin/Your lips on mine run wild horses/Run out of control deep down in your soul/We become one, run wild horses run.”
Fans and critics agree that the self-penned homage to his wife “turns the heat way up” as “R&B overtones dominate a sultry, guitar and fiddle-heavy arrangement that practically reaches out to dim the lights itself” (Taste of Country). “Run Wild Horses,” which is racing its way through the 40’s on the country radio charts, racked up some impressive playlist adds this week including Pandora’s New Country Now, Apple’s Hot Tracks, and Randy Travis’ “Diggin’ Up Songs” on Spotify.
The tour in support of new album “Vaquero” continues to heat up the summer with a slew of sellouts already under Watson’s belt in 2018, including a record-breaking attendance in Midland, TX. The success puts Watson in great company, earning a slot in the coveted Top 100 on Pollstar’s recent “Global Concert Pulse,” which ranks each artist by average box office gross per city worldwide.
