I am honoured that he would record some of my songs'.

Thank you, Skip Ewing, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Skip Ewing...



Skip Ewing was born Donald Ralph 'Skip' Ewing in Redlands, California on Friday 6 March 1964 and grew up in a military family and moved around often as a child.

Skip Ewing discovered country music through listening to country music legends Merle Haggard and Lefty Frizzell (Saturday 31 March 1928 - Saturday 19 July 1975), and took up the guitar at a young age.

Skip Ewing began writing songs as a teenager; he also learned to play the banjo, which he played at bluegrass festivals.  Skip Ewing took a job performing in a country show at Busch Gardens theme park in Virginia.  From there, Skip Ewing moved to Nashville at the age of nineteen where he took a similar job at the Opryland theme park.

Now that he was now in Nashville, Skip Ewing branched out into demo and commercial singing.  Skip Ewing worked diligently at his song-writing, so much so that he landed a staff job with the famous Acuff-Rose music publishing house.
