Wade Bowen vs. Aaron Watson – Texas Red Dirt Rumble
Last week's Taste of Country Texas Red Dirt Rumble was a close one, but in the end, Wade Bowen came out on top against Casey Donahew Band. Now, Bowen and his song 'Saturday Night' are up against a new competitor. Aaron Watson's 'Fast Cars Slow Kisses' enters the ring this week, and both Texas country crooners are out for blood -- figuratively speaking, of course.
'Saturday Night' is a love song of sorts, but it's not the typical magic fairy tale type you may be used to. Rather, poor Bowen has found himself alone in the bar wishing to escape drunk girls, kissing couples and to -loud bands, 'cause they're just not helping to mend his broken heart. Sadly, in the end he doesn't recover and winds up at home again ... all alone.
On the other hand, 'Fast Cars Slow Kisses' describes fresh love -- a budding romance between two online daters. In Watson's story, a fun-loving beauty finds a truck-driving cowboy on a similarly lonely night, but they don't wake up alone on Sunday morning. They find a shared love of driving fast, kissing slow, watching movies and a simply good old-fashioned romance.
Which of these two hit Texas country singles sits better with you? Are you a fan of soaking in sorrow, or will you try just about anything to find that special someone? Have a listen to both Wade Bowen's 'Saturday Night' and Aaron Watson's 'Fast Cars Slow Kisses' and decide for yourself which song should move on in the Rumble.
