It has to be said that there are not many award trophies on Gene Watson's mantelpiece at home in Texas. However, things changed for the better in 2002.
On Saturday 17 August 2002, Gene Watson was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.
It was also on Saturday 17 August 2002 that Gene Watson's fellow country music artists Tanya Tucker and Nat Stuckey (Sunday 17 December 1933 - Wednesday 24 August 1988) were inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame.
2002 was also the year that saw the release, on Tuesday 3 September 2002, courtesy of Hux Records in England, of a 2-for-1 CD containing the re-mastered versions of Gene Watson's 'Love in the Hot Afternoon' (Capitol Records, 1975) and 'Paper Rosie' (Capitol Records, 1977).
This Hux Records release was lovingly produced with the original album artwork and comprehensive liner notes and proved to be a strong and clear indication that there was a need to have all of Gene Watson's material presented in such a fashion.
