Aaron Watson is releasing his first-ever Christmas album, An Aaron Watson Family Christmas, this Friday, Oct. 5.
The 10-song collection features both holiday standards and two originals, and was a labor of love for Watson and his family, including his wife of 16 years, Kimberly and their children Jake (12), Jack (10) & Jolee Kate (8), who are all featured on the album. The two originals on the project include the self-penned nod to his home state, “Lonely Lonestar Christmas,” and “She Stared At Him All Night,” a religious song written by Drew Womack.
“We’ve talked about making this record for a few years now and I’m so glad we finally did,” says Watson. “I had so much fun with Kim and the kids working on this project and including them, and am so proud of how it turned out. It’s very much a Frank Sinatra on the farm kind of feel. We hope it is something families can enjoy during the holidays for years to come.”
Beginning Friday, fans can order special packages from aaronwatson.com with items including a tree ornament replica of Watson’s guitar, a set of holiday cards for fans to send out, an Aaron Watson ugly Christmas sweater, and more.
