Exclusive Review: Adam Watson – “Goodbye Shouldn’t Hurt This Bad (The Nation’s Single)”

Cover Art of Adam Watson’s Single

Visceral artists like Adam Watson know how to truly convey a powerful message. One that is relevant, ambient and truly earth shatteringly real when it’s authentically delivered. Adam, who has been honing his musical craft for 20 years, breathes true life into his powerful anthem “Goodbye Shouldn’t Hurt This Bad: The Nation’s Single”. A song about the devastation of COVID19 and how it has affected us all both individually and wholesomely. The sickness, pain, and overall pandemic this tragedy has brought to the forefront.

Inspired by a few of Adam‘s favorite TV personalities like Rachel Maddow (MSNBC), one of many who had COVID scares, compelled the rising Hip Hop/R&B and Indie up-and-coming star to put his pen to paper and voice to mic. With a gold standard beat that is subtle with ambience and an essence that brings a vast array of emotions, this track’s mood is completely content but expressive as well; bringing beauty to subjects even like this. It’s a song that encompasses the beauty of a tragic truth; one that is avoidable and all too real.

Adam Watson‘s low-to-mid vocal tones are more story-telling than anything else and delivers the message in a way that resonates with your undivided attention. It’s no wonder this song has received the critical acclaim that it has – its content is hard hitting, relatable, undeniable and connects all of us in some way. If real hope for this pandemic comes from a true voice, then Adam Watson is that voice; togetherness, realness, and a true form of a nation’s re-introduction and strength. This song truly parallels the national anthem and brings a sense of equality to the idea altogether. All for one, one for all. Adam Watson wrote this song to stand with you…will you stand with him?

The song released just a few days ago, but will hold its strength for years to come. You can find it on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and several other digital music streaming platforms. If the national anthem still holds that unconditional feeling in your heart, then I compel you to put “Goodbye…” on that same scale. This is 2020’s true anthem, and every measure expresses this direction no matter how heartsick you may be.
