Note from Gene Watson
'Enough for You' (written by Kris Kristofferson)

'This song was written by Kris Kristofferson and recorded by him, but it was an album cut by Billie Jo Spears (Friday 14 January 1938 - Wednesday 14 December 2011) when I first heard it and I've wanted to record for years.  I used to have this song on a Billie Jo Spears 8-track tape.

At a crucial point in the lyrics, the 8-track would change over and I never could quite get the words down.  By the time I reached out to Billie Jo, even she couldn't recall the words to the song.  So it has taken me awhile to find the lyrics, but now seemed like just the right time to record it and it came off so well we made it the first single from the album'.

Note from Gene Watson
'When a Man Can't Get a Woman Off His Mind'
(written by Bill Anderson and Sharon Vaughn)

'This is a song I loved and recorded for Compendia Records and unfortunately, the company shut down its country division before I could release it.  I then sang it on a TV tribute show for Bill Anderson and the fans have been asking me how they could buy it for years now.  This seemed like the perfect time to record it for my fans'.

Note from Gene Watson
'Help Me'
(written by
 Larry Gatlin)

'This was written and released by the great Larry Gatlin, then a little known singer named Elvis (Tuesday 8 January 1935 - Tuesday 16 August 1977) recorded it and the rest is history.  I've always loved the words and the melody and knew I would eventually record it.  I took it back more to the original version but put my own spin to it and I hope my fans love it as much as I do.

I wanted to make it so that the true message of the words would shine through and I hope I captured that.  We all have a time in our life when we need to be inspired by words of faith.  While I was recording, it was such a special moment when Larry Gatlin surprised us all by stopping by, literally, as I was just about to sing.

I guess it was his presence that made me sing it the way I did at that moment because we didn't change a single thing to it.  What you hear is what I sang with Larry listening in the studio.  No pressure there!'

Note from Gene Watson
'Couldn't Love Have Picked a Better Place to Die', which was written by Bucky Jones and Curly Putman (Thursday 20 November 1930 - Sunday 30 October 2016)

'I had this song out in 1997 on Step One Records.  It was a song the fans loved, but once again, when Step One Records folded, it was impossible to get this song, so I re-cut it due to the demand of my fans.  It's a terrific song by Bucky Jones and Curly Putman (Thursday 20 November 1930 - Sunday 30 October 2016) - two great songwriters back in the day'.

5 
'A Girl I Used to Know' (written by David Ball)
Publishers: Cedar Poppin Songs BMI



David Ball recorded 'A Girl I Used to Know' (written by David Ball) and included the track on 'Freewheeler' (Wildcatter Records, 2004).


Note from Gene Watson
'A Girl I Used to Know'
(written by David Ball)

'Normally, well before I get to the studio, I know what songs I'd like to do and I've got the lyrics and the music in my mind.

But on this song, all that went out the window.


This David Ball song was actually pitched to me by a great A&R man, the fantastic singer, T. Graham Brown.  On the recording day, I had people tracking down David Ball for the lyrics and T's wife, Shelia, actually personally delivered a copy of the song to the studio.

I loved the song, but I wasn't 100% sure it was a song that fit what I typically do, but after I had a good listen and ran through it, I knew it was a song I could do and I really, really like how it turned out'.

Note from Gene Watson
'Bitter They Are, Harder They Fall'
(written by Larry Gatlin)

'Back when I was on Capitol Records, many years ago, I was asked to pick a song to record that I considered one of my favourites and I immediately chose this song written and released by Larry Gatlin.

It's one of my favorites of all time - just an amazing song by a master singer / songwriter.


Fast forward many years later and I was at a TV taping for a 'Country's Family Reunion' show with Larry Gatlin.

Larry had often teased that he wanted me to sing this song for him at his birthday party so, lo and behold, unplanned and unrehearsed, Larry called me up to sing this song as a duet with him, rather than do the song he had prepared for himself.

I hadn’t sung the song in ten years, but fortunately, the words all came back to me as we sang it together while the cameras rolled.  What you see now on YouTube and those 'Country Family Reunion' shows is the one take wonder!

So from that, fans were constantly asking me for a copy of this song and I thought this was the perfect time to record it again for them.  A great song never goes out of style'.

'Ramblin' Rose', which was written by Noel Sherman (1930 - Monday 4 June 1972) and Jim Sherman
Publishers: Sony/ATV ASCAP

Note from Gene Watson
'Ramblin' Rose'
(written by Noel Sherman (1930 - Monday 4 June 1972) and Jim Sherman)

'This came about in a most interesting way.


I was booked to do the Larry’s Country Diner TV show and the night before I was at The Grand Ole Opry with Jimmy Capps, who provides the acoustic guitar work for that show.

We were just talking about great old songs backstage at the Opry and I sang that with him picking.  Everyone around us loved it so much it was decided I should do that song on the TV show.  As it always happens, the fans then wanted to buy a copy of it.  So, once again, this song was recorded by the request of my fans'.

'A Bridge That Just Won't Burn' (written by Jim McBride and Roger Murrah)
Publishers: Universal Music Publishing BMI/ASCAP

Note from Gene Watson
'A Bridge That Just Won't Burn'
(written by Jim McBride and Roger Murrah)

'Many people know that Conway Twitty (Friday 1 September 1933 - Saturday 5 June 1993) was something of a mentor to me in the music business and I loved his version of this song, but I hadn't really thought about covering it until the songwriter, Jim McBride, suggested it.

I love the lyrics and truly enjoyed recording this one.  I was and always will be a fan of Conway, both personally and professionally, so I hope the fans will feel I’ve done this song justice in honour of the man they used to say was 'the best friend a song ever had' - Mr. Conway Twitty (Friday 1 September 1933 - Saturday 5 June 1993)'.

Note from Gene Watson
'Ashes to Ashes'
(written by Joe Chambers, Larry Jenkins and Mark Sherrill)

'This is another song the fans have requested over the years.  It's one I've always loved and so I was happy to re-record just as a personal favour to the best fans in the world'.

'Old Loves Never Die', which was written by Dave Kirby (Sunday 10 July 1938 - Saturday 17 April 2004) and Warren D. Robb
Publishers: Almarie Music; Screen Gems-EMI Music BMI



Gene Watson 'Old Loves Never Die', which was written by Dave Kirby (Sunday 10 July 1938 - Saturday 17 April 2004) and Warren D. Robb, and included the track on 'Old Loves Never Die' (MCA Records, 1981).



In 1983, Ray Price (Tuesday 12 January 1926 - Monday 16 December 2013) signed with record producer Snuff Garrett's Viva Records, which was jointly owned by Clint Eastwood.

Snuff Garrett (Tuesday 5 July 1938 - Wednesday December 2015), a native Texan, had been producing hits since the late 1950's with rock 'n' roll artists, including Bobby Vee, Gary Lewis & The Playboys and Cher.

Snuff Garrett (Tuesday 5 July 1938 - Wednesday December 2015) also produced recordings by Frank Sinatra (Sunday 12 December 1915 - Thursday 14 May 1998), Peggy Lee (Wednesday 26 May 1920 - Monday 21 January 2002) and Sarah Vaughan (Thursday 27 March 1924 - Tuesday 3 April 1990), as well as creating the highly successful '50 Guitars of Tommy Garrett' album series for Liberty Records.

Snuff Garrett (Tuesday 5 July 1938 - Wednesday December 2015) produced a fine album by Ray Price (Tuesday 12 January 1926 - Monday 16 December 2013), along with several outstanding singles, some of which appeared in the Clint Eastwood films 'Honkytonk Man' and 'Any Which Way You Can'.

Unfortunately, illness sidelined Snuff Garrett (Tuesday 5 July 1938 - Wednesday December 2015) for a period of time and, as a result, a number of Ray Price's recordings from this period, in 1983, remained un-released until 2014.



In 1983, Ray Price (Tuesday 12 January 1926 - Monday 16 December 2013) & The Cherokee Cowboys recorded 'Old Loves Never Die', which was written by Dave Kirby (Sunday 10 July 1938 - Saturday 17 April 2004) and Warren D.

Note from Gene Watson
'Old Loves Never Die'
(written by Dave Kirby (Sunday 10 July 1938 - Saturday 17 April 2004) and Warren D. Robb)

'This is just a great little country song.  I never had the chance to release it as a single, but it could have done well I think.  It's one that like so many others is out of circulation and deserves to be back in the spotlight'.

'She Never Got Me Over You', which was written by Hank Cochran (Friday 2 August 1935 - Thursday 15 July 2010), Dean Dillon and Keith Whitley (Thursday 1 July 1954 - Tuesday 9 May 1989)
Publishers: Sony/ATV BMI



Mark Chesnutt

'She Never Got Me Over You', which was written by Hank Cochran (Friday 2 August 1935 - Thursday 15 July 2010), Dean Dillon and Keith Whitley (Thursday 1 July 1954 - Tuesday 9 May 1989), was released to country radio in the United States in March 2009, debuted at No.60 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart in early April 2009 and subsequently peaked at No.49.

Hank Cochran
(Friday 2 August 1935 - Thursday 15 July 2010) had held on to this song, until he offered it to Mark Chesnutt in 2007.


Note from Gene Watson

(written by Hank Cochran (Friday 2 August 1935 - Thursday 15 July 2010), Dean Dillon and Keith Whitley (Thursday 1 July 1954 - Tuesday 9 May 1989)

'This song was a single for one of the true country greats, Mark Chesnutt.

When it was pitched to me, I didn't know if I was the right person to sing it or not, but I knew it was a tremendous song and wanted to try it.  This one is actually much harder to sing than you'd think, but I think we got it and I'm proud of it'.

'All My Tomorrows', which was written by Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988)
Publishers: Sony/ATV BMI



Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988) recorded 'All My Tomorrows' (written by Nat Stuckey) and included the track on 'All My Tomorrows' (Paula Records, 1967); the track reached No.27 on the Billboard country music singles chart in 1967.



Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988) was inducted into The Texas Country Music Hall of Fame on Saturday 17 August 2002, along with Gene Watson and Tanya Tucker.



Gene Watson recorded 'All My Tomorrows', which was written by Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988), during his time with Step One Records between 1993 and 1997.

Gene Watson's recording of 'All My Tomorrows', which was written by Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988), did not see the light of day until an unfinished version (in Gene Watson's opinion), was released by Tee Vee Records and included on 'Gene Watson: 22 Golden Country Greats' (Tee Vee Records, 2009) in 2009.

Ann M. Stuckey submitted a 'Peer's Quote' about Gene Watson on Saturday 25 January 2014


Note from Gene Watson
'All My Tomorrows'
(written by Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988)

'I always loved this song, written by the great Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988).

It was one I was working on for Step One Records, but when that label went out of business, the song was never finished.  It irked me when a company bought the masters from Step One and released this track with no backing vocals, not mixed or anything.

I wanted to finish this one as it was meant to be done so I recorded it and it's still one of my favourites - just finally done right'.

Note from Gene Watson
'I'll Find It Where I Can'

(written by Michael Clark and Zak Van Arsdale)


'This is a great up-tempo song that I heard recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis.

I've had it in the back of my mind that I wanted to record it for years and years, but this was finally the right time for it'.
