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 Shane Barmby, which he submitted to this site on Monday 4 December 2006.
Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Shane Barmby who has made a special contribution to a unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.
This quote was submitted on Monday 4 December 2006.
'I have enjoyed Gene's music forever.
I am a fan'.
Thank you, Shane Barmby, for your support of Gene Watson.
