‘I love Gene Watson and got to briefly meet him at a show in Gonzales, Texas back in October 2018.

Gene’s music has stood the test of time and most amazingly his voice is better than ever after 40+ years of performing.

Every aspiring artist that truly wishes to become a great singer should listen to Gene Watson’
