Gene Watson Peer’s Quote from Bryan White: September 2014

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 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 Bryan White, which he submitted to this site on Thursday 18 September 2014.

Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to Bryan White who made a special contribution to this unique part of this online ‘celebration of a Lone Star Hero’.

Bryan White: 'My Christmas Project' (EP) (Bryan White Independent Release, 2006)

With his fourth album, ‘How Lucky I Am’ (Asylum Records, 1999), being less commercially successful, Bryan White started doubting himself and his talent which landed him in a deep depression, forcing him to take some time off until 2005, when he began work on another album.  A second Christmas (extended play) EP disc, ‘My Christmas Project’ (Bryan White Independent Release, 2006), followed in 2006 and was a self-release.

In July 2009, Bryan White released a new single from the album, ‘The Little Things’, which he stated ‘was a record that I had to make.  It’s my most personal to date.  ‘Dustbowl Dreams’ (Just A Pup Records / 101 Distribution, 2009) was for my healing’.
