Album Review: Aaron Watson - The Underdog (Score: 8/10)

1035x1035-Aaron Watson - The UnderdogIt is hard to believe that this is album number 12 for Texas-born country singer/songwriter Aaron Watson. But the road to stardom is a long one and you’ve got to stay the course, remaining true to your musical roots and writing from a place of truth. And truth can reveal itself in a number of different ways.  Moods waver from “The Prayer,” inspired by Johnny Cash’s brush with suicide, and “Bluebonnets,” dedicated to his late daughter Julia, to sexy and lighthearted like “That Look.”  Watson is a storyteller who classically and eloquently captures the human condition. – Eric A.
