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 2008, 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 Heather Myles, which she submitted to this site on Friday 10 October 2008.

Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Heather Myles who made a special contribution to this unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.



Heather Myles
This quote was submitted on Friday 10 October 2008.

'Gene Watson is one of the few heroes of real country music.

His music crosses oceans because it is not only true country music but it is unique.

He has a gifted voice'.

Thank you, Heather Myles, for your support of Gene Watson.
