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 during 2010, 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 Joel Key, which he submitted to this site on Tuesday 2 February 2010.

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

Joel Key
This quote was submitted on Tuesday 2 February 2010.

'It was a pleasure to work with Gene on his 'A Taste of The Truth' (Shanachie Records, 2009) record.

What a remarkable talent!

His musical intuition is incredible and his sense of emotion is delivered perfectly with character and style.

Gene Watson is a defining element in the art of country music.

Everything he does is done with marvellous musical 'taste' and that's the 'truth'!'

Thank you, Joel Key, for your support of Gene Watson.
