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, in the years between 2004 and 2019, were most gracious with their time and words.
Kathie Baillie & Michael Bonaguru – Baillie & The Boys – graciously submitted a quote – each – to this site on Monday 30 December 2019.
Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura – Baillie & The Boys – emerged as one of the best known country music bands of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Baillie & The Boys were an integral part of shaping the direction of country music. The release of their first RCA single, ‘Oh Heart’ (written by Kathie Baillie, Michael Bonagura and Don Schlitz), blended an East Coast pop music sound, with traditional Nashville songwriting.
