In December of 2013 Aaron Watson released a single to radio that would wind up becoming his signature song. "July in Cheyenne" is a poignant tribute to champion bull rider Lane Frost, and a song we're sure any artist would mind having as a signature hit.

So, how did Watson become a part of the Lane Frost legacy?

It was a simple conversation he had with Frost's mother, "Lane was a world champion bull rider, but that wasn't his greatest achievement," Watson told us she shared with him. "She said his greatest achievement came a year before he died when he asked Jesus Christ to be his savior. She went on to say she wished they'd put that part in the movie "8 Seconds," and they didn't. But I thought I'm gonna write her a song." And he did.
