Aaron Watson is kicking of the new year with a brand new single, “Kiss That Girl Goodbye,” a toe-tapping, boot-stomping, feel-good song sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.
“Kiss That Girl Goodbye,” written by Aaron, is the first song from his upcoming album, Red Bandana, due out later this year. The uptempo, sure-to-be a hit, tune has Aaron singing for the ladies—putting a bad relationship behind you and moving on to better things. The song likens a good day to when the boy kisses the girl goodbye, “If ever was a good day it’s the day 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,” Aaron sings in the chorus.
“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.”
Jolee Kate loves the song so much that she joined her dad in a video to promote the new tune. In the video, Aaron is singing the song while his little girl is grinning ear to ear.
