For his new album, Aaron Watson wanted to kick things off with a bang. Enter his new single “Kiss That Girl Goodbye.” Inspired by a fan interaction, the song was written solely by Watson and tells the story of a man who is stupidly leaving a woman behind.
“If he really wants a goodbye kiss / He must be out of his ever-lovin’ mind / If he really wants a goodbye kiss / You tell him to go kiss it where the sun don’t shine,” he sings in the bridge.
“’Kiss That Girl Goodbye’ is my brand spanking new single and one of the twenty songs that I wrote for my upcoming album, Red Bandana,” shared the singer in a press release. “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.”
Watson was so excited about debuting the track that he and Jolee Kate posted an adorable video to Twitter of the duo dancing along with the track.
Watson will take the track, as well as others from his upcoming Red Bandana album, out on the road in 2019 for his tour. The Texas native is hitting cities from coast to coast with more than 40 dates scheduled.
“Kiss That Girl Goodbye” is available for purchase and streaming now.
