iTunes Review

Aaron Watson’s ninth studio album was released in 2012, but it reaches back a few decades to when Texas country singers like George Strait and Clint Black wore big cowboy hats and played new traditional–styled twang. More traditional than new-sounding, Watson infuses a good measure of his Abilene, Texas, roots into Real Good Time, starting with the fast-paced honky-tonkin’ title track. He follows this with the fiddle-heavy “Summertime Girl,” where his gritty tenor recalls a summer romance that keeps him warm in the winter. Through a sepia-toned nostalgia, he works in some American small-town imagery here. Justin McBride chimes in on the rollicking roadhouse groover “Cadillac Cowboy”; its Bakersfield-flavored Telecaster picking sounds like it's by the ghost of the late, great Don Rich (from Buck Owens’ band The Buckaroos). A slightly out-of-tune parlor piano adds the kind of comforting vibe found in those old-time saloons with peanut shells and sawdust on the floors. Elizabeth Cook lends her silky voice to a standout duet, a cover of Stevie Nicks' "Leather and Lace.”

Customer Reviews

Honky Tonk KId Delivers the Hits!

The Honky Tonk Kid rocks out and even raps a little to poke fun at the posers. Country in nashville is dead and POP has taken over. In Texas guys like Aaron stay true to their roots and play COUNTRY Music. Every song is a must listen to. He renews some old hits and gives us some new ones as well. The tribute to Lane Frost is song writing at its best, just a great song that speaks of real life and the pain that can occur to heroes. Josh Abbott and Fowler lend a hand as do Charla Corn(HOT! love the Ranch 95.9), Pat Green, John Anderson, Justin Mcbride(Best Bullrider Ever), and Lizzy Cook. Aaron Watson is one of the best and he proves it with this album!

Texas music at its finest!

Mr. Watson has done it again! It doesn't get much better than this. Great music, incredible lyrics, and talent that only the good Lord gives.
