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 Kieran Kane, which he submitted to this site on Wednesday 31 May 2006.

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



Kieran Kane
This quote was submitted on Wednesday 31 May 2006.

'I think of Gene Watson as one of the greatest country singers of all time and honestly can't think of a single singer popular on the radio today who could deliver a song with the strength or subtlety that he possesses.

And I mean it. He is truly amazing and his choice of songs killer.

It's sad to think that many of those songs would not find a home on the modern so-called country music stations'.

Thank you, Kieran Kane, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Kieran Kane...



Kieran Kane was born on Friday 7 October 1949 in the Queens borough of New York City and grew up in Mount Vernon where he heard plenty of country music on jukeboxes.  It was Kieran's brother who turned him onto bluegrass music when he was thirteen years old.  After high school, Kieran Kane spent a couple of years at Boston University and Suffolk University, but he gave up his education in order to concentrate on making music.

Eventually, Kane Kane shifted his focus to bluegrass music, before relocating to Los Angeles, California in 1971 where he found work as a session guitarist and songwriter.

Kieran Kane eventually met Deborah Allen and Rafe VanHoy who persuaded him to try his luck in Nashville, where he arrived in 1979.  It didn't take Kieran Kane long to find success in Music City, where he signed a song-writing deal with Tree Publishing Company.



T.G. Sheppard recorded Kieran Kane's 'I Came Home to Make Love to You' and included the track on '3/4 Lonely' (Warner Bros. Records, 1979).

Kieran Kane also signed to a recording contract with Elektra Records; although several singles were released for the label, an album was never released and Kieran Kane soon left the label over creative disputes.



Kieran Kane's talents as a consummate songwriter were soon evident; Johnny Duncan (Wednesday 5 October 1938 - Monday 14 August 2006) recorded Kieran Kane's 'Play Another Slow Song' and included the track on 'Straight From Texas' (Columbia Records, 1979); the track reached No.17 on the Billboard country music singles chart in 1980.



In January 1981, Hank Williams Junior saw the release of 'Rowdy' (Elektra Records, 1981), on which Kieran Kane played a prominent mandolin fill on the intro to Hank Williams Junior's No.1 Billboard country music hit 'Texas Women' (No.1 for one week in March / April 1981).



In December 1981, Kieran Kane saw the release of his self-titled debut album, 'Kieran Kane' (Elektra Records, 1981), which was produced by Jimmy Bowen, and included four tracks which were released as singles on the Billboard country music singles chart:

'You're The Best' (written by Bruce Channel and Kieran Kane) (No.14, 1981)

Kieran Kane's self-titled debut album, 'Kieran Kane' (Elektra Records, 1981) reached No.38 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart in 1981.
