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 by The Gene Watson Fan Site, during 2017, 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 Celinda Pink, which she submitted to this site on Wednesday 8 February 2017.

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

About Celinda Pink...
Celinda Pink

Celinda Pink was born Celinda Cosby in 1957 in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

The 1990s country music singer Celinda Pink once recorded 'I’ve Earned The Right to Sing The Blues', which could not be more appropriate.

Celinda Pink's father was in the Alabama State Prison; her mother abandoned her children when Celinda was only five years old.  Celinda Pink absconded from foster homes and children's homes and was sent to a reform school.

A quick learner, Celinda Pink graduated when she was sixteen years old and then went to Nashville to trace her mother.

Celinda Pink married a local musician, Hal Brock, but their relationship was short-lived and she became a heroin addict.

After a number of relationships, Celinda Pink teamed up with Pete Mitchell (Saturday 14 March 1942 - Sunday 24 July 2016), one of Ernest Tubb’s Texas Troubadours, who encouraged her to sing the blues, as well as country music.

Step One Records

However, Pete Mitchell (Saturday 14 March 1942 - Sunday 24 July 2016) left Celinda Pink on the day she was to record the album 'Victimized' (Step One Records, 1993).  'I felt he did that on purpose to upset me', reflected Celinda Pink at the time.  'When I went in there, I sung those songs with pain and feeling'.

The dedication on Celinda Pink's debut album, 'Victimized' (Step One Records, 1993), read 'Special thanks to Pete for breaking my heart'.

Celinda Pink's albums featured the throatiest blues in Nashville and yet included enough country music to appeal to that market as well.  Indeed, Celinda Pink recorded for one of the most traditional country music record labels in Nashville, Step One Records.

On Monday 10 May 1993, Celinda Pink saw the release of her debut album, 'Victimized' (Step One Records, 1993), which included three tracks, which were released as singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks Chart:
