Two Years Ago Aaron Watson Dropped This Epic George Strait Cover [Distant Replay]
Can you believe that it was now 2 years ago this month when the internet was figuratively overrun with George Strait covers from so many of our favorite Texas acts? Cody Johnson, Randy Rogers, Josh Abbott, Aaron Watson and more got in on the action; gearing up for the release of George Strait's, Strait Out Of The Box: Part 2.
Remember which song The Honky Tonk Kid covered? We do. It was "Amarillo By Morning," his all-time favorite from the King of Country. Before Watson sang it, he told us about the first time he heard the song, thanks to a visit to a local radio station.
... In my goody bag they put a 45 of "Amarillo by Morning," your current single, and when I got home my dad put the 45 on the turntable and we listened to 'Amarillo by Morning' for the first time. And that year my dad bought my first two vinyl records, Strait from the Heart, and Thriller by Michael Jackson.
