Meloncholy Monday: Truth be known Stephen! Yes, that’s my canadian companion and loyal listener of this station as well as fellow worker of the Dirt Hurt Tuesday segment on this program.
Yes, Melancholy but maybe we can help to clear up some of those Monday Blues by playing a little Aaron Watson? Who is Aaron Watson? Well now if you don’t know; allow me to make reference here. Check out an article on https://broadwayworld.com that
sums it up so well by saying
Aaron Watson continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena. Watson’s newest release and highly-anticipated album Vaquero launched into the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart with his biggest career sales debut to date, and at #2 on the Top Country Albums chart. Texas Monthly, Billboard, Rolling Stone Country, Noisey, CMT, The Boot and more have all featured the new music. Vaquerois the follow up to his history-making album The Underdog, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart, making him the first-ever independent, male country artist to debut in the coveted top spot. The album features lead single “Outta Style,” his record-breaking Top 10 hit on country music’s national radio airplay charts. His recently released self-penned new single, “Run Wild Horses,” is top 40 and climbing on the country radio charts. Live at the World’s Biggest Rodeo Show,the “pioneering independent’s” (Cowboys & Indians) 14th album and his first live album in nearly a decade, is set to release on August 24, 2018, marking the one year anniversary of Hurricane Harvey’s landfall. $1.41 from each album sold will benefit the Rebuild Texas Fund, in recognition of the widespread devastation across Watson’s beloved home state. Recorded live in front of 65,000 fans on opening night of the 2017 Rodeo Houston, the album is particularly poignant to the Texas born-and-bred singer/songwriter.
Thankyou Broadwayworld.com for that review.
Now we’ve heard it is better to give than to receive and here it’s no surprise to me that Aaron is dedicating so much of his sales to the cause of rebuilding the Lonestar state after the devastation of Hurriccane Harvey. Aaron also believes in paying the band. In fact; he keeps his boys well fed on fulltime wages yet working them on part time hours. He releases them and encourages them to go home to their families rather than burning the candle at both ends in show biz. Wait ago @Aaronwatson; way to lead the musical journey with a bright and shining torch for all the world to see!
