Aaron Watson Reveals ‘Bluebonnets (Julia’s Song)’ Lyric Video
Since Aaron Watson released The Underdog in February of 2016, and it's subsequent rise to No. 1 on the Billboard chart, which was followed be a ten week stay in the Top 10, he has released three singles to radio.
"That Look," "Freight Train," and "Getaway Truck," all three reached No. 1 status in Texas, but none are as sweet or emotional as his fourth release from the album.
"Bluebonnets (Julia's Song)," was, for those who aren't familiar with the story, inspired by Watson's daughter, Julia Grace, who passed away just hours after she was born due to complications from Trisomy 18, a chromosomal abnormality, but still was able to bring her father, mother and family so much happiness in her flash of life here on earth.
The Watson's pregnancy with their fourth child and their earth-shattering story was documented at their family blog, BarbedWireHalo -- as it was unfolding. It's a story that Aaron nor his wife, Kimberly, has never shied away from sharing with fans, and something that we all truly take inspiration from and respect. Read more about the impact of Julia Grace's life.
"Life is like Bluebonnets in the spring..."
October 10th was one of the most bittersweet blessed days of my life. After a long and emotional pregnancy, my wife delivered our 4th child, precious Julia Grace at 33 weeks. Julia came into this world with the sweetest little cry that I have ever heard, and then just like that she was gone. She was beautiful and elegant and I am so grateful for the little time we got to spend with her. Like an angel returning home, she left us gently and gracefully without any real pain or suffering. I haven’t posted any blogs since we found out about Julia’s fatal condition over three months ago but I have documented every week of Kimberly’s pregnancy. All the highs and the lows, the tears, and the fears. We buried our little baby girl this week and we are heartbroken. We are heartbroken, yet hopeful. We are hopeful because we have Jesus. Through our pain and suffering I now have a better understanding of the magnitude and true significance of the sacrifice that He made upon that cross. I am a better husband because of my Julia Grace. I am a better daddy because of my Julia Grace. Things have been put into perspective and because of that I am a better man because of my Julia Grace. She is all that has been on my heart and mind. I have nothing else to write about except for her. I would be honored to share Julia’s story with you. Let me start from the beginning. Here are my words from back in July.
