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 Hugh Moffatt, which he submitted to this site on Thursday 6 February 2014.

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

Sean Brady would also like to say 'thank you' to David Hossack, without whom this Gene Watson 'Peer's Quote' from Hugh Moffatt would not have been possible.



David Hossack promoted Hugh Moffatt’s appearance, on Thursday 20 February 2014, at The Royal Oak Lounge, 1 Infirmary Street, in Edinburgh, Scotland.



Hugh Moffatt
This quote was submitted on Thursday 6 February 2014.

'I'm proud to be asked to contribute to your project to honor Gene.



When I first heard 'Love in the Hot Afternoon' in 1975, my first thought was 'Who the **** is that singer?'.


Even during that golden age of country music that included legendary records by Waylon Jennings (Tuesday 15 June 1937 - Wednesday 13 February 2002), Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Tammy Wynette (Tuesday 5 May 1942 - Monday 6 April 1998), George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), Charlie Rich (Wednesday 14 December 1932 - Tuesday 25 July 1995), Roger Miller (Thursday 2 January 1936 - Sunday 25 October 1992), Ronnie Milsap and many others, Gene's record stood out as something special.

And, he followed it up with many other showcase songs for his compelling voice.

From one transplanted Texan to another, congratulations on 50 years and thanks for not retiring.

We still need you!

All my best to Gene.

I don't believe we ever met, but we have plowed the same fields for a lot of years'.

Thank you, Hugh Moffatt, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Hugh Moffatt...

Following his graduation, Hugh Moffatt moved to Austin, Texas and had planned to move to Washington, DC but a visit to The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville in 1973 renewed his old passion for country music, and he stayed there to seek a career in that genre of music and to try his hand at professional songwriting.
