Fans and critics agree that the self-penned homage to his wife “turns the heat way up” as “R&B overtones dominate a sultry, guitar and fiddle-heavy arrangement that practically reaches out to dim the lights itself” (Taste of Country). “Run Wild Horses,” which is racing its way through the 40’s on the country radio charts, racked up some impressive playlist adds this week including Pandora’s New Country Now, Apple’s Hot Tracks, and Randy Travis’ “Diggin’ Up Songs” on Spotify.
The tour in support of new album Vaquero continues to heat up the summer with a slew of sellouts already under Watson’s belt in 2018, including a record-breaking attendance in Midland, TX. The success puts Watson in great company, earning a slot in the coveted Top 100 on Pollstar’s recent “Global Concert Pulse,” which ranks each artist by average box office gross per city worldwide.
