New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
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 at hyperurl.co/zrrdlg. 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).

Watson continues to dominate as a true independent in the country music arena. Watson's last studio album Vaquerolaunched 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. Vaquero is 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 "Outta Style," his record-breaking Top 10 hit on country music's national radio airplay charts and top 40 hit "Run Wild Horses." Watson wrapped 2018 with two new projects, Live at the World's Biggest Rodeo Show, Watson's 14th album and his first live album in nearly a decade, and his first ever Christmas collection, An Aaron
Watson Family Christmas.
The singer/songwriter's rise has been paved by years of hard work and perseverance. Eighteen years later, over a dozen recorded albums, more than 2,500 shows in the U.S. and Europe, and a newly inked global distribution partnership with ADA Worldwide, the Texas
native is determined to stay true to his roots and deliver music directly to his fans. Watson shared his journey with fans via a video that has racked up over 7.2 Million views and 50,000 shares, proving his phenomenal connection to fans.
