The Texas native has been a mainstay in the Texas country music scene for over 20 years, wracking up a number one Top Country Album with his 2015 project The Underdog, along with his first mainstream radio hit “Outta Style.”
Needless to say, even though he’s seen a lot of success over the past couple decades, he’s still trying to “perfect” his craft, and Unwanted Man further proves that.
“When I get a little bit pissed off and competitive that’s when I do my best stuff, and I’m right there right now.
So I’ll tell you about the ‘Unwanted Man’ album that comes out this summer… it was all songs that I wrote during the quarantine, there’s 10 songs, I picked ’em. It was really the first time I was like ‘there is no theme, these are my songs.'”
And if you were wondering about the message Watson was trying to send through the new album, it’s simple:
“To go for the jugular of mainstream country music.”
The album is filled with heartfelt messages to his wife, like the title-track, life lessons, tear jerkers, and songs that’ll have you wanting to take it easy on a Saturday night and share a few drinks with your significant other.
