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 2006, 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 Joe Chambers, which he submitted to this site on Friday 18 August 2006.

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



Joe Chambers
This quote was submitted on Friday 18 August 2006.

'Sean, thank you for your kind words about myself and my dear friend and co-writer Larry Jenkins.

I would be honoured to talk about Gene Watson for your site.

To me, Gene is one of a hand full of real country music singers, not just stars but true vocal talents like George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), Merle Haggard (Tuesday 6 April 1937 - Wednesday 6 April 2016) and Patsy Cline (Friday 24 July 1936 - Sunday 11 January 2004).

It was a high point in my writing career to not only have Billy Sherrill (Thursday 5 November 1936 - Tuesday 4 August 2015) produce but to have Gene Watson sing one of my songs.

To be honest with you, I think Mark Sherrill is also a writer on 'Ashes to Ashes' also.  It's been a while since we wrote it now, but I'm pretty sure Mark is on that one too.

Good luck with the site and thank you for sharing your knowledge about Gene with all of his fans'.

Thank you, Joe Chambers, for your support of Gene Watson.
