Get an Extra Long Exclusive Listen to Aaron Watson’s ‘Real Good Time’ [AUDIO]


Aaron Watson did something this summer no other Texas or Red Dirt artist has ever done. In six short weeks, his single “Raise Your Bottle” shot to No. 1 on the Texas Music Chart. And now with his new album about to drop (10/9) he’s released a smashup of every song on the “Real Good Time” album, and I’ve got it for you right here.

When Aaron and I recently talked about the sweeping radio success of “Raise Your Bottle,” he deflected saying, “Well you know I think its a great song, I’m very proud of it. But I think what’s even better than the song is what we’re doing with [it].”

The song was originally inspired by Watson’s father, who was 100 percent disabled from the Vietnam War. But it wasn’t long before it grew from a song for his dad to a song for his grandpa and great-grandpa, then also for his military friends and family. Before it ultimately became a song from him to all veterans — from the World Wars to Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Raise Your Bottle” is a song inspired by Aaron Watson’s father, and dedicated to all military veterans.

When I wrote this song … and I started thinking about all these people who sacrificed so much. [And] even though I wrote this song, I didn’t feel like it belonged to me. So, until the day I die, every penny that this song generates will go toward our disabled veterans and their families [via The Boot Campaign].

Aaron also told us that his new album “Real Good Time” will be his “Most fun [album] yet,” and is set to be available for purchase and download October 9, 2012. But heads up, you can actually pre-order it now. And if you’d like to hear every hook of every song, Aaron’s letting you do just that. Press play below.

Aaron wrote fifteen of the eighteen tracks on “Real Good Time,” and he joked “so at least three will be good.” But something else that will please longtime fans he has re-cut a few of his older, fan favorite songs including “Off The Record,” “Reckless,” and “Honky Tonk Kid” which will also all be included on it.
