Aaron Watson vs. Kyle Park – Texas Red Dirt Rumble
Congratulations to Aaron Watson, who took out reigning champ Wade Bowen in last week's Taste of Country Texas Red Dirt Rumble. Watson's hit single 'Fast Cars Slow Kisses' just barely came out on top, winning 52% of the vote -- but it came out on top, nonetheless. Now, Watson will face a new competitor in Kyle Park, whose song 'Make or Break Me' has been growing major popularity on the Texas charts as of late.
Watson's 'Fast Cars Slow Kisses' is a peppy tune about a lonely girl who finds her equally lonely match on an online dating site. Coincidentally, they both have an affinity for old-fashioned, movie-style romances and spark up what seems to be a match made in heaven, making for a happily-ever-after tale.
'Make or Break Me' is also a sweet love song, but rather than telling a story, Park sings it straight to his one and only, letting her know that he's her confidant, her shelter and her forever rock. On the same ticket, his special lady is also what keeps him going strong -- hence her ability to make or completely break him.
So, country music fans, which will it be? Do you prefer Watson's talented storytelling ability, or can you relate better to Park's heartfelt, love-heavy single? Listen to both tracks below and and decide which one should move on in the Rumble. Then, share the link with your friends so they can pick a favorite, too.
You’ve got until Midnight CT on Wednesday, Dec. 21 to choose your favorite of the two songs. After the winner of this week’s Rumble is chosen, a new match will start up, pitting the winner against a brand-new challenger.
