On Tuesday 28 June 2022, Gene Watson remembered a recording session he undertook at Jack Clement Studio in Nashville in June 1978.

It was this week, on Wednesday 28 June 1978, that I went into the Jack Clement studio in Nashville to do some recording, and the result was two of my biggest hits, ‘Should I Come Home (Or Should I Go Crazy)’ (written by Joe Allen) (No.3, 1979) and ‘Nothing Sure Looked Good On You’ (written by Jim Rushing) (No.4, 1979).

Recording is one of my absolute favorite things to do, next to performing live on stage.

I really appreciate great musicians and great songwriters and in the studio, both come together.  The creative process of making music is a feeling that‚Äôs hard to describe, but when a musician creates a series of notes that you ultimately hear on a recording, that‚Äôs like watching an artist put their brush to a canvas. It never gets old’
