Gene Watson: 'Reflections' (Capitol Records, 1978)
Gene Watson: 'Paper Rosie' (Capitol Records, 1977)

‘I’ve always loved Geneā€™s amazingly smooth (and pure country) vocal delivery on songs like ‘Farewell Party‘, which was written by Lawton Williams (Monday 24 July 1922 – Thursday 26 July 2007) and ‘Paper Rosie‘, which was written by Dallas Harms (Thursday 18 July 1935 – Saturday 12 October 2019).

Gene Watson: 'Old Loves Never Die' (MCA Records, 1981)

When ‘Fourteen Carat Mind‘, which was written by Dallas Frazier (Friday 27 October 1939 – Friday 14 January 2022) and Larry Lee Favorite (Saturday 6 January 1940 – Saturday 26 May 2001) came out, I was 12, and rushed to the record store with my allowance money to buy the 45RPM single.  Being a self proclaimed ‘sentimental pack rat’, I still have it today.

Gene Watson was officially inducted as a member of The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on Friday 7 February 2020

Gene is an incredibly deserving Opry member, and true country legend’

Thank you, Terri Clark, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Terri Clark…

Terri Clark

Terri Clark was born Terri Lynn Sauson on Monday 5 August 1968 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.  Terri Clark’s family eventually settled in Medicine Hat, Alberta, where she was raised.  Terri Clark is the third of four children; she has a younger brother, Peter, and two older sisters, Kim and Tina.

Terri Clark’s grandparents, Ray and Betty Gauthier, were both noted Canadian country music musicians, having opened for a number of artists, including George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 – Friday 26 April 2013) and Johnny Cash (Friday 26 February 1932 – Friday 12 September 2003).

In 1994, Keith Stegall became an executive at PolyGram Records / Mercury Records in Nashville and promptly signed Terri Clark to a recording deal.

The 76-year-old from Palestine, Texas was surprised by Vince Gill, who is one of the Grand Ole Opryā€™s favourite couriers of formal invitations.

After performing a song, Vince Gill invited Gene Watson out on stage unexpectedly.  ‘I’ve got a little bit of a cold and not feeling too good, and they’ve got me down for two more songs, but I’d love to give you one of those songs.  I’ll make you a deal.  I’m a wheeler-dealer guy.  If you do ‘Farewell Party‘, we’ll invite you to become the next member of the Grand Ole Opry’.

Of course, Gene Watson accepted, and looked genuinely surprised, elated and emotional.

After catching his breath and receiving a standing ovation, Gene Watson said, ‘In 2019, we celebrated the 40th anniversary of the release of this song.  And, after 40 years, it’s still the most requested song.  And then you pull this on me, I’m not sure I’ve got anything left’.

Terri Clark: 'The Highway' (written by Holly Williams) (Friday 26 March 2021)

On Friday 26 March 2021, the following post was noted on Terri Clark’s official site at terriclark.com:

‘When I first heard ‘The Highway’ (written by Holly Williams) on Holly Williams’ album, ”The Highway (Georgiana Records, 2013), several years ago , I was co-hosting a live morning radio show 5 days a week, up at 3:30 in the morning every day, always exhausted, and playing under 25 shows a year.

I felt like my soul was suffering, because I wasn’t on stage doing what God put me here to do.  I was also training for a half marathon and had her album on a loop in my earbuds at that time and I would start just weeping while I was running every time ‘The Highway’ came up.  I’m sure it was a sight to behold.  I saw Holly at the Opry and I told her how much I loved and wanted to cut the song.  But for some reason I held off – until now.

In between the sound-checks, standing ovations, encores and autographs, there are endless hours of driving, bad hotels and rushed meals.  But, with experience comes perspective and somewhere along the line, touring became part of who I am.

I may not have been born on the road, but I grew up there.

This song captures what most musicians are feeling.  It’s an honour to sing a song I wished I’d written.  This past year has taken a toll on so many levels for so many people.  Within our industry, with our fans, bands, crews, bus companies, venues, the list goes on.  We are here to give people an escape and lift them up with live music and the ultimate connection between an artist and audience has been snuffed out, during a time we have all needed it most.  I wanted to record this to remind my fans I love them and we will be back’
