Is Aaron Watson’s ‘Run Wild Horses’ a Hit? Listen and Sound Off!
Aaron Watson turns the heat way up with "Run Wild Horses," an absolute baby-maker from his Vaquero album.
The followup to "Outta Style" has a Michael McDonald kind of feel, if the Doobie Brother was from the American southwest. R&B overtones dominate a sultry, guitar and fiddle-heavy arrangement that practically reaches out to dim the lights itself. Then he starts to sing.
"Run wild horses / Run free as the wind my passion on your skin / Your lips on mine run wild horses / Run out of control deep down in your soul / We become one, run wild horses run," he sings at the chorus.
Watson is one of country music's most dynamic singers and songwriters with a unique ability to make a statement, lament heartbreak and seduce his lover. He's a newcomer by Nashville standards, but a decade-plus worth of hard work. Attention to his craft pays off with nuanced performances like the one found on "Run Wild Horses."

Aaron Watson's "Run Wild Horses" Lyrics:
Somewhere on a nowhere road I hear you whisper this / Slow that Mustang down, come on and steal my kiss / Girl I've got you in my arms, coming all undone / No fences in your heart.
Run wild horses / Run free as the wind my passion on your skin / Your lips on mine run wild horses / Run out of control deep down in your soul / We become one, run wild horses run.
Out there on that sunset strip those stars come out at night / But they don't shine like you / You've got your own spot light / Girl I want to take you home, wanna get you all alone / Unleash this love of mine.
So let's break these chains and go down like the setting sun / No love don't need these reigns / No we can't be bound can't tie us down.
