Aaron Watson has a “Real Good” week. His new album “Real Good Time” debuted at #9 on the Billboard Country Album chart.
(Please don’t ask me if this was before or after the chart changes or ANYTHING about that damn Billboard chart. I don’t get it, don’t want to get it and never even bothered to look at it until just recently and it is clear from talking with Billboard Bill yesterday, I don’t have an opinion on it. I’m just not that intellectual. Trust me, I am as shallow as a kiddie pool.)

The song on the album that seems to be getting the most internet buzz is Aaron’s “rap” song, “Hey Y’all”:
“My girl is skinny but rhymes are phat.”
Knowing Aaron, the first time I heard this song I couldn’t stop laughing. The idea of Aaron Watson being a Country Pimp with gravy running down his chin was just the best visual ever! If these boys don’t make a video for this song with Aaron in a big purple velvet pimp coat, I am going to be devastated. Someone call Granger Smith and his brothers/camera crew and PLEASE make this happen.
And don’t let that Honky Tonk thing fool you, Aaron is a OG and can bust into some of The Chronic when he wants to. Check out the band at a sound check…and yes, that is really them playing:
Hmmm…what about a Texas vs. Nashville rap battle? Aaron and Colt Ford 8 Mile style?
