On Saturday 5 August 2023, Gene Watson reflected on his international touring days.
‘I’ve had some great international tours over the years, and it makes my heart happy to know that real country music is still treasured around the world.
On Tuesday 12 June 1979, Norman Rainey (1943 – Thursday 3 November 2022) made a special presentation, in Belfast, to Gene Watson, during Gene’s tour of Ireland and the United Kingdom in 1979
The photo above was taken in 1979 in Belfast.
I’m not sure where the other photo was taken, but it was around the same time, because those mutton chops don’t lie.
That hair may not be as high as our friends The Malpass Brothers wear theirs today, but it’s close.
