Gene Watson's 'Gene Watson: 40 Greatest Hits' (IMG / Gusto Records, 2010) was officially released by IMG / Gusto Records in March 2010.

About Gene Watson's 'Gene Watson: 40 Greatest Hits'...

Album Overview
'Gusto Records is a Nashville-based record company, which specialises in re-issuing and licensing recordings from its vast catalogue of music from acquired record labels and their own studio recordings.

In 2005, Gusto Records acquired the back catalogue of Step One Records, an independent record label which had operated out of Nashville between 1984 and 1997; Step One Records was founded by Ray Pennington and Curtis Potter (Thursday 16 April 1940 - Saturday 23 January 2016).

Gene Watson's 'Gene Watson: 40 Greatest Hits' (IMG / Gusto Records, 2010) contains some very fine material from Gene Watson's time with Step One Records (1993 - 1997).  Some tracks are also taken from Gene Watson's time with Capitol Records (1975 - 1980), and Broadland International Records / Mercury Records Canada in 1992.

Gene Watson's 'Gene Watson: 40 Greatest Hits' (IMG / Gusto Records, 2010) includes three previously unreleased tracks; 'All My Tomorrows', which was written by Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988), and 'Love's Tombstone' (written by Carl Jackson and Jenny Yates) were tracks which Gene Watson never completed.

On Friday 11 September 2009, Gene Watson informed The Gene Watson Fan Site that one track had no backing vocals, while the second track was one which Gene Watson decided to discard after he had laid down a 'rough' studio vocal for the song.

'Let's Give It Up or Get It On' (written by Joe Allen) is a re-recording and appears on CD for the first time'.
