Aaron Watson, a country singer who has experienced success to the tune of 200,000 album sales, half a million downloads, four charted albums, and several nationally charted Billboard singles, recently released a new album, Real Good Time. Real Good Time reached Number Nine on Billboard’s country chart and has since sustained its placement on said chart.
Aaron has released three singles thus far off his latest album, but his fourth and final single, “July In Cheyenne,” is the most poignant and personally meaningful. A nod to Lane Frost, one of the most prolific professional bull riders to ever compete, the song references Lane’s career and his tragic death at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Through the track, Aaron tells the remainder of Lane’s story that was not portrayed in the Hollywood blockbuster 8 Seconds. The song was so moving that it struck a friendship between Aaron and Lane’s mom, Elsie Frost, to whom Aaron wrote and dedicated the song.
In honor of rodeo season commencing, as well as the twenty-fifth anniversary of Lane Frost’s untimely death, we ask that you watch the video below for “July in Cheyenne” and check out Aaron Watson’s website for updates on his music and tour dates.
