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 2014, 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 Gary Prim, which he submitted to this site on Sunday 3 August 2014.

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



Gary Prim
This quote was submitted on Sunday 3 August 2014.

'I first became a fan of Gene Watson in the late 1970s.

Having lived in Nashville a short time, I was invited by some studio singer friends of mine to a recording session.

They were singing on a Gene Watson session.

Back then, the background vocals were still done live with the singer and band.



On this session, they recorded 'Fourteen Carat Mind'.

It was certainly a memorable day for me.



Who would have believed that years later I would play on some of Gene's recordings.

He is a true gentleman and one of the best of the traditional country artists still performing'.

Thank you, Gary Prim, for your support of Gene Watson.
