Gene Watson’s Peers: Quote from John Hogan: August 2019

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 2019, 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 John Hogan, which he submitted to this site on Thursday 1 August 2019.

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

Sean Brady would also like to take this opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to Mary Mooney at Press & Promotion for John Hogan (Mary Mooney is also a music columnist for ‘Ireland’s Eye’ Magazine), without whom this Gene Watson ‘Peer’s Quote’ from John Hogan would not have been possible.

‘Gene Watson is a great interpreter of songs and music, with a depth and feel in all his lyrics.

He puts his heart and soul into the songs he sings and only Gene Watson can do this in his own inevitable and wonderful way.

What a legend, what a remarkable artist, what a gift to be blessed with.

Gene Watson, you are my hero

Thank you, John Hogan, for your support of Gene Watson.

About John Hogan…

John Hogan

John Hogan was born Johnny ‘John’ Hogan in Kilbeggan, County Westmeath, Ireland, on Sunday 31 August 1958 but has been living in Croghan, Rhode, County Offaly, Ireland for the last thirty years or so.

After completing his education, John Hogan worked as a supervisor in a peat briquette factory in Croghan, County Offaly.

Inspired by Jim Reeves (Monday 20 August 1923 – Friday 31 July 1964) and Hank Williams (Monday 17 September 1923 – Thursday 1 January 1953), John Hogan dreamed of a singing career.

It was always John Hogan’s dream to get involved in showbusiness.

The opportunity came in 1987 when John Hogan used the money scheduled as the next instalment on his mortgage to finance the project in a local recording studio.

John Hogan recorded a demo tape of an old song that his mother had sung to him as a child, a song called called ‘Brown Eyes’.  Airplay on local pirate radio stations in Ireland, including Breffni Radio in County Cavan, and Radio West in County Westmeath, provoked considerable interest and led to John Hogan quitting his job to concentrate on a singing career.

John Hogan formed a band and, with the help of appearances on some major television shows and a great deal of hard work, he gradually built his reputation and gained successes in the Irish charts.

Such was the success of ‘Brown Eyes’ that it headed straight to the top of the Irish charts and remained at No.1 for several weeks.

It was there and then that John Hogan decided to pack in his day job as a supervisor with Bord-Na-Mona and embark on a full time career in music.

John Hogan played his first professional gig in The Border Inn, Castleford, in County Donegal, Ireland to a sell-out crowd and became one of the biggest names in Irish country music virtually overnight.
