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 Jimmy Clay Frizzell, which he submitted to this site on Sunday 22 October 2017.

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

'It is my opinion that Gene Watson is one of the greatest country singers of all time.

Gene's right up there with the best, Merle Haggard (Tuesday 6 April 1937 - Wednesday 6 April 2016), George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013) and Lefty Frizzell (Saturday 31 March 1928 - Saturday 19 July 1975).

Gene seems to be overlooked a lot, even by myself sometimes.

Most of the greats are gone; we still have Willie Nelson and Loretta Lynn, but sometimes I forget we still have Gene Watson and I'm grateful for that'

Thank you, Jimmy Clay Frizzell, for your support of Gene Watson.
