'Here are some words I can offer about the wonderfully talented Gene Watson. I've had the honour of performing with my band at some shows with Gene here in Texas and I danced to almost every tune!
Not only did he have a voice of gold even after all these years, but he was a showman and entertainer as well. Let's not forget that every other song he sang was a bonafide hit.
Cheers to a great country singer/songwriter!'
Thank you, Pauline Reese, for your support of Gene Watson.
