An authentic torchbearer for independent artists, Aaron Watson continues to be “one of country music’s biggest DIY success stories” (Forbes) with his latest effort, “Kiss That Girl Goodbye,” the solely self-penned lead single from his forthcoming studio album. The lyrically driven, up-tempo percussive stunner is the first glimpse into Watson’s brand-new studio project, “Red Bandana”.
Slated for release in 2019 on his own BIG Label Records and distributed by ADA Worldwide, the album has already landed on “the most anticipated country albums of 2019” lists including Saving Country Music and The Boot.
“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 twenty songs that I wrote for my upcoming album, “Red Bandana,” says 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.”
“Kiss That Girl Goodbye” is being delivered to country radio and available now on all streaming services. Watson is kicking off the first leg of his 2019 tour to ring in the new year! Announced coast to coast stops stretching from Tampa to Spokane and Anaheim, CA to New York City, spanning more than 40 dates through Memorial Day. Other highlights of the tour bring his “arena- ready country” live show to the AT&T Center (San Antonio Rodeo), Ryman Auditorium (Nashville), 9:30 Club (Washington, D.C.), and Toyota Stadium (Frisco).
