Independent country artist Aaron Watson is kicking off the new year with a brand new feel-good, boot-stomping song entitled “Kiss That Girl Goodbye.” It is the lead single and one of twenty songs the vocalist wrote for his upcoming studio album Red Bandana, which is slated for release later this year.
The self-penned, uptempo tune has Watson preaching about leaving a previous relationship in the past and moving onto better things. He sings in the chorus, “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 westbound 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”
In a recent press release, Watson shared the writing process behind the sure to be hit, “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.”
The Texas native will head out on the first leg of his 2019 headlining tour this month which will through the spring and hit New York City on March 2nd at Terminal 5. The show includes sets from Watson, Eli Young Band, Pat Green, and Kyle Park, and tickets are available here. Visit https://www.aaronwatson.com for a full list of dates and additional information.
