The Story Behind Aaron Watson’s July in Cheyenne [VIDEO]
We are so jacked up for Bulls on the Beach coming to Water Valley on Labor Day weekend. This is going to be an amazing event with bull riding, bull fighting and a concert with Brothers Osborne and Aaron Watson. You have been hearing us playing a lot of Aaron Watson lately to get ready for the show. One of my favorite songs of his is his tribute to Lane Frost “July in Cheyenne.”
Sometimes I forget how old we are and that there are many many people who have no idea who Lane was. We have had people call after the song and ask what the song is about. I thought I would let the players tell you in their own words. Check out an interview and tribute to Lane that was on George Michael’s Sports Machine many years ago and you can see the story for yourself and then enjoy Aaron’s tribute to our fallen rodeo hero. I can hardly wait to hear this song live on August 31st. See you at Bulls on the Beach.
