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 Melba Montgomery, which she submitted to this site on Tuesday 4 February 2014.

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

Gene is a great country singer and still sings as good as he did when he first started'.
