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 2018, 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 Rosie Flores, which she submitted to this site on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

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

'Gene Watson is one of the great country artists.

A real honky tonk hero, with a killer voice.

This man should be inducted into The Country Music Hall of Fame.

Gene Watson: 'Honky Tonk Crazy' (Epic Records, 1987)

For all the singers he's influenced, it's 'Honky Tonk Crazy', if he doesn't get what he so deserves in Nashville'


Thank you, Rosie Flores, for your support of Gene Watson.
