Gene Watson's Peers within the country music industry believe in the sheer talent of this unassuming man from east Texas, so much so that Gene is regarded by many of them as 'the singer's singer' - and rightly so!

All of Gene Watson's Peers, who were contacted by The Gene Watson Fan Site, during 2005, were most gracious with their time and words.

It is here, within this special part of The Gene Watson Fan Site, that you have an opportunity to read a quote from Dale Watson, which he submitted to this site on Tuesday 25 October 2005.

Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Dale Watson who has made a special contribution to a unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.



Dale Watson
This quote was submitted on Tuesday 25 October 2005.

'Gene Watson has always been a part of my country music diet.

Gene Watson: 'Paper Rosie' (Capitol Records, 1977)

'Paper Rosie' was the first song I heard of him and I was a fan from then on.

Having the same last name, I was always asked if I was related to Gene.

We are from the same part of Texas, but the answer was 'no', but I'm a big fan.

To this day, I still get asked that about Gene and I still say 'no', but I'm a big fan'.


Thank you, Dale Watson, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Dale Watson...



Dale Watson champions 'Ameripolitan' as a new genre of original music and has positioned himself as a tattooed, stubbornly independent outsider who is interested in recording authentic country music.  As a result, Dale Watson's record sales have been slow, but he has become a favourite of both critics and alt-country fans.

Dale Watson was born in Birmingham, Alabama on Sunday 7 October 1962, but spent his teenage years near Houston, Texas and he grew to think of Texas as his true home state.  Dale Watson grew up in poverty outside of Pasadena, Texas as one of four boys.

Dale Watson's father, after whom he is named, along with his brother, Jim, were both musically inclined and guided what have become his longstanding musical influences.

Dale Watson began writing his own songs at the age of twelve, making his first recording two years later.  Soon after, Dale became an emancipated minor.  By day, he went to school and by night he played local Houston clubs and honky tonks with Jim in an aggregation called The Classic Country Band.

After graduating from high school, Dale Watson spent seven years playing local clubs and honky tonks.

In 1988, upon the advice of Rosie Flores, Dale Watson moved to Los Angeles  and soon joined the house band at North Hollywood's now-legendary alt-country venue The Palomino Club.

In 1990, Dale Watson recorded two singles for Curb Records, 'One Tear At a Time' and 'You Pour It On'.



On Thursday 1 July 1993, the third volume of the compilation series, 'A Town South of Bakersfield' (Restless Records, 1993), was released; Dale Watson performed the track 'One Memory At a Time'.

Not long after, Dale Watson moved to Nashville and spent some time writing songs for Gary Morris' publishing company; it was at this time that his first daughter was born.
