Aaron Watson coming in strong with Red Bandana

Aaron Watson’s brand-new album, Red Bandana, opens at #2 on Billboard’s Country Album Sales chart


With nearly 10,000 sold and over 11,000 total consumption, including more than 2 Million first week streams for the “epic” 20-song collection. Written solely by Watson, who co-produced the project with Jordan Lehning, Red Bandana marks his 20th year in music and has been dubbed “his most ambitious album yet,” by Taste of Country and “a soulful, resonant record that sums up his restless, wandering spirit” by All Music. The “fiercely independent musician” (Texas Monthly) shares personal and poignant stories and showcases his introspective new song “Trying Like The Devil” during an appearance on TBN’s “Huckabee” set to premiere on Saturday, July 6 at 8/7c with a repeat airing on Sunday, July 7, 2019.

Watson was also a featured guest on “Glenn Beck” late last week to talk about the new album and the significance of his “58” tribute. While in Nashville, he stopped by The Bobby Bones Show, played BMI Rooftop and the Opry, and surprised visitors with a pop-up performance at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.  Fans can also get an in-depth glimpse into the making of Red Bandana via Texas Monthly’s “National Podcast of Texas”—available now. Catch the new music on Watson’s “arena-ready country” 2019 headlining Red Bandana tour, spanning coast to coast through October.  Tickets are available now at
