As I was hopping around YouTube today, I happen to find the below.
Though the end of the chorus is a a little awkward lyrically and musically, I like the idea this take on celebrating our military. Toasting those who serve with a raise of the bottle is something you can do individually or as a group; whether you have a personal connection to the military or not. I like that the tune is pretty breezy, too. Rather than a sad lamenting song or a boistrous patriotic, diddy, Watson crafts something as individual as the action the tune represents.
While I hadn’t heard of Watson before, it turns out the crooner has been around for a while. He’s got ten albums to his credit. I listened to a few from the latest The Road and The Rodeo on his website. He’s a pretty good artist and his music is perfect for those who like a little bit more country vs. pop in their music. Plus, he ain’t that tough to look at either.
