Aaron Watson’s ‘Red Bandana’ Album Debuts At #2

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.

Watson wrapped a busy street week including a hometown arena show in Abilene over the weekend where he was presented with a coveted “Million Air Award” by BMI celebrating one Million spins for his record-breaking Top 10 hit, “Outta Style.”
