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 2009, 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 Bobby Dale, which he submitted to this site on Wednesday 10 June 2009.

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

Bobby Dale
This quote was submitted on Wednesday 10 June 2009.

'Gene Watson has always been a big inspiration to me; therefore I would welcome the opportunity to participate in any and all tributes to him.

I've got a lot of heroes in the country music business but I would say that Gene Watson is at the 'top of the ladder' and I think it is high time that he got the recognition that he deserves.

I never miss an opportunity to take in one of his shows and have never been disappointed with his performance.

Thanks for the invitation'.

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

About Bobby Dale...

Bobby Dale was raised north of Austin, Texas and is one of twelve children.

'Better Than the Truth'
