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 Tim Culpepper, which he submitted to this site on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

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

This quote was submitted on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

'Gene Watson has been a main influence on me and my music since I was old enough to reach the knob on a record player or tape player, and ever since I could look over a dresser in the mirror to sing along with his music.

His stage presence and command of an audience to just sit and listen to him sing a burning country song or slow sad tear-jerking ballad has always been something that I've studied and tried to immulate.

He is so humble and one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet.

He is long overdue and should have already had his name listed in The Country Music Hall of Fame as someone who has shaped many artists' careers and is widely respected by his peers and fans of real, true, traditional country music.

Gene Watson will always be known as 'A Singer's Singer'!

Thank you, Tim Culpepper, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Tim Culpepper...

Tim Culpepper

Tim Culpepper
was born in Jackson, Mississippi and raised in Montgomery, Alabama.

Tim Culpepper believes in honest-to-goodness real country music.

With hints of Randy Travis, Keith Whitley (Thursday 1 July 1954 - Tuesday 9 May 1989), Gene Watson and George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), it only takes one listen to know who influenced Tim Culpepper's smokey, honky tonk, brand of vocals.

Tim Culpepper's journey began with his father, country entertainer and musician, Forrest Elwyn Culpepper, or 'Curly', as he had come to be known by those who frequented the honky tonk scene in and around Montgomery in Alabama.

The birth of Tim Culpepper, soon after, would complete an already accomplished family of singers and musicians which, at the time, included such close friends as Hank Williams (Monday 17 September 1923 - Thursday 1 January 1953) (who had passed, before Tim’s birth), and Marty Robbins (Saturday 26 September 1925 - Wednesday 8 December 1982).

While most children began life experiencing a mostly subdued environment, young Tim Culpepper was backstage with the likes of Hank Williams Junior, Marty Robbins (Saturday 26 September 1925 - Wednesday 8 December 1982) and Johnny Cash (), or in the audience with his mother, while his father was performing.

When he was nine years old, Tim Culpepper approached his father, holding an over-sized Epiphone guitar, and asked for his first lesson.  Having earlier traded the stage, for more stable work, as an over-the-road trucker, his father agreed to teach Tim Culpepper with one condition - Tim Culpepper had to promise that, when he was ready, he would move to Nashville to chase his dream.

After high school, where Tim Culpepper spent early evenings playing football, and late nights performing at any local venue his mother could talk into allowing the under-aged singer to enter, Tim kept his word and made his way to Nashville.

Tim Culpepper would eventually be heard while performing in the famed honkytonks of Lower Broadway and Tim would spend the following years, honing his craft.
