Country singer Aaron Watson dropped by the studio to hang out with Glenn Beck and the guys on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.” Watson, who is touring to promote new album “Vaquero,” wrote a song with Pat Gray titled “Pat’s Pop-Country Blues.”
The song needed to be “poking fun at country music,” Pat said, referring to an earlier conversation where he and Watson were talking about country clichés.
“I’m taking some of the things that he hates, and this is like his frustration,” Watson explained the song. “I’m letting everyone know, this is Pat’s world.”
The twangy tune winked at country music clichés and described a cynical, Pat-esque point of view with lyrics like: “I’ve had enough of politics and bad news/I’m an old rock and roll soul stuck in an old mud hole and now I’m singing those pop-country blues.”
Watson’s album “The Underdog,” which was independently released, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart in 2015.
