Aaron Watson Relates His Personal Loss in Helping Heal After Las Vegas
Aaron Watson played the Las Vegas fest last year and had friends near the Route 91 Harvest Festival stage this year during the concert Shooting…
Many of you, I’m sure remember six years ago Aaron and his wife lost a baby just after she was born. Watson talks about it from time to time and even wrote a song called ‘Bluebonnets’ in her memory which is on his ‘The Underdog’ album.
In an interview with ‘Taste of Country Nights’….Aaron says…“It took me months and months and months to get back on the stage. I remember one time, I was talking to my mama about it, and she said ‘Such is life. Such is life.’ And it’s true, it’s life. Life is full of heartache and hard times and really life is too short for us to continue bickering over the little stuff.”
In recognition of those who died in Las Vegas’ tragic shooting event, Watson said…
“We really need to come together for the families because while it’s emotionally disturbing to all of us, two or three weeks from now there’s new news. Life keeps going, but for those people they’re still going to wake up every morning (without a loved one).
Law enforcement, the press … they can try to pick it apart, but at the end of the day we just need to pray for these families who lost loved ones.”
Watson goes on to say…“The problem with the country is we’re not being loving toward each other. There’s nothing but division and that’s the problem,” he says. “I could preach all day. I could tell you we need more Jesus. I could tell you we need more love, but it’s the truth.”
Take a moment to watch the above lyric video to Aaron Watson’s song ‘Bluebonnets’ which, as I mentioned earlier…he wrote about the loss of his daughter.
