Gene Watson Peer’s Quote from Jeff Bates: March 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 Jeff Bates, which he submitted to this site on Wednesday 5 March 2014.

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

This quote was submitted on Wednesday 5 March 2014.

‘Gene Watson, the man with the smoothest, silkiest voice in country music actually helped save my life!

I had always been a huge fan of Gene’s voice and music, singing his songs at my gigs since I was seventeen years old!

In 2001, while in rehab in Davidson County Jail in Nashville, Tennessee I surrendered my life and my addiction fully to Jesus Christ!

That surrender happened forty-five days into my incarceration for grand theft and meth related charges.

The next day, after my conversion, I received my very first visit from my Warner Chapell song plugger and friend, Rusty Gaston, who told me Gene had recorded two songs that very day that I had co-written, less than twenty-four hours since I had promised God that I simply wanted to do what He wanted me to do, even if it meant staying in jail!


Gene Watson: 'From The Heart' (RMG Records, 2001)

Gene recorded ‘The Man An’ Me & You‘, which was written by myself and Kenny Beard (Thursday 26 February 1959 – Sunday 1 October 2017), and ‘Would It Be Cheating‘, which was written by myself, Michael White and Carson Chamberlain.


I was ecstatic and humbled, and I knew in my heart that God wanted me to continue writing songs, that He had a plan for me, a purpose for me, and that knowledge at that moment completely changed my life forever!

I’ve been clean and sober now for thirteen years!

Thank you, Gene, for letting God use you, your voice, and your music to reach out in the darkness to a man who had lost everything to addiction and giving me hope and helping turn my life around!

I am forever grateful, my friend!’

Thank you, Jeff Bates, for your support of Gene Watson.
