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 Judy Rodman, which she submitted to this site on Saturday 2 October 2010.

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

Thank you, Judy Rodman, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Judy Rodman...



Judy Rodman was born the daughter of an air-traffic controller and part-time bluegrass musician in Riverside, California on Wednesday 23 May 1951.  Judy began singing at the age of four and was a competent guitar player by the time she was eight years old, when she debuted with her father's band at a cruise ship party.

During her family's many moves, Judy Rodman developed an interest in different forms of music, ranging from classical to Cajun to calypso.  At the age of seventeen, Judy Rodman began singing commercial jingles; her voice was heard nationally, in the United States, on one for Jeno's Pizza.

Judy Rodman later studied music in college, where she and her roommate, Janie Fricke, became jingle singers at the Tanner Agency in Memphis; Judy Rodman also sang with Phase II, a local nightclub band.



Judy Rodman provided harmony vocals on three Billboard No.1 country music hit singles achieved by Janie Fricke:

'It Ain't Easy Bein' Easy' (written by Shawna Harrington, Mark Gray and Les Taylor) (No.1 for one week in November / December 1982)

'Tell Me a Lie' (written by Barbara Myrick and Mickey Buckins) (No.1 for one week in December 1983)
