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 2013, 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 Bert Colwell, which he submitted to this site on Thursday 31 January 2013.

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



Bert Colwell
This quote was submitted on Thursday 31 January 2013.

'It was such an honour to have Gene record 'You Can't Take It with You When You Go', which I co-wrote with Larry Cordle and Larry Shell, and which Gene recorded in 1991.



Gene is absolutely the best singer out there'.

Thank you, Bert Colwell, for your support of Gene Watson.



About Bert Colwell...



Bert Colwell, at the time of the acquisition of this Gene Watson 'Peer's Quote', in January 2013, was living in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida and was not a part of the Nashville country music scene.

As a consequence, Bert Colwell had not been successful in getting his material to the attention of the major country music recording artists.

Bert Colwell has written several songs with Larry Cordle and Larry Shell, but the track 'You Can't Take It With You When You Go' is the only one to be recorded to date.

Bert Colwell's 'You Can't Take It With You When You Go', which was co-written with Larry Cordle and Larry Shell, was recorded twice in 1991, by Gene Watson and Ricky Skaggs respectively.
