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 2009, 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 Katy Moffatt, which she submitted to this site on Thursday 2 July 2009.

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



Katy Moffatt
This quote was submitted on Thursday 2 July 2009.

'Gene Watson is among a scant handful of truly great vocal artists to come out of country music.

He is the soul of credibility, a consistent selector of terrific songs and a tremendous personal influence for me.

To emulate his delivery is desirable, but impossible, so the best we can do is continue to listen and be amazed'.

Thank you, Katy Moffatt, for your support of Gene Watson.

About Katy Moffatt...



Katy Moffatt was born Katherine Louella 'Katy' Moffatt on Sunday 19 November 1950 and is an American musician, lyricist, composer and vocalist.  Katy Moffatt is the sister of country music singer-songwriter Hugh Moffatt.

Katy Moffatt became impassioned by music as a child growing up in Fort Worth, Texas.  Katy Moffatt was captivated by Broadway show tunes, The Beatles and the Motown sound, and has said that she was such an avid listener to Top 40 radio that 'I used to come home from school, have dinner, go to bed, and set the alarm for midnight.  Then I'd get up and do my homework and listen to the radio.  It was my favourite time - I could be alone with the music'.

 

This Katy Moffatt recalls in 'Midnight Radio' (Watermelon Records, 1996), the title song of her lauded, second album for Austin, Texas-based Watermelon Records, which was preceded by the Gavin Americana Chart success 'Hearts Gone Wild' (Watermelon Records, 1994).

Katy Moffatt points to the influence of The Beatles and the bands of the British invasion as inspiring her to learn the guitar.  Katy Moffatt credits Leonard Cohen's 'Dress Rehearsal Rag' for making her want to perform and says folk singers like Judy Collins, Phil Ochs and Dave Van Ronk were her models.  Ella Fitzgerald and the versatile vocalist Tracy Nelson were also important influences.



In 1976, Katy Moffatt saw the release of her debut album, 'Katy' (Columbia Records, 1976), and since then has continued to grow and expand her own artistry so effectively that, in November 2002, she saw the re-issue of her first two Columbia Records albums, 'Katy' (Columbia Records, 1976) and 'Kissin' in the California Sun' (Columbia Records, 1978), on one CD ('Katy & 'Kissin' in the California Sun' (Westside Records, 2002).

In 2008, Katy Moffatt participated, by special invitation, in a star-studded tribute to Les Paul (Wednesday 9 June 1915 - Wednesday 12 August 2009), which was presented by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Hers is a career marked by consistent critical acclaim, industry appreciation (a 1985 Academy of Country Music nomination as 'Best New Female Vocalist'), movie appearances ('Billy Jack', 'Hard Country' and 'The Thing Called Love'), songs covered by talents such as Hoyt Axton (Friday 25 March 1938 - Tuesday 26 October 1999) and Janie Fricke, and an album,'The Greatest Show On Earth' aka 'The Evangeline Hotel', which outsold Garth Brooks on the United Kingdom country music charts, where it stayed for six months.



By the time she was in high school, Katy Moffatt was absorbing the music of Tom Rush, Judy Collins and Leonard Cohen, whose ‘Dress Rehearsal Rag’ made her want to perform.  Later, Tracy Nelson and Ella Fitzgerald, whose version of the Cole Porter gem, ‘Miss Otis Regrets’, would later inspire Katy Moffatt's brilliant acoustic adaptation of the song on her album 'Angel Town' (HMG Records, 1998).

These songs became vocal touchstones for Katy Moffatt, who recalled that as soon as she started performing, she knew this was what she wanted to do.  But there weren’t many places for a young girl like her to perform.

Early gigs included a small Fort Worth coffeehouse, an old folks home (where her audience included Willie Nelson’s grandmother) and a Neiman-Marcus fashion show with a then-trendy folk music theme.

During her college years in Santa Fe, Katy Moffatt fronted blues and jug-band groups, starred in her one and only musical ('The Fantastiks') and was cast as a folksinger in 'Billy Jack'.

 

After college, Katy Moffatt spent time in Austin opening shows for the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker and Willis Alan Ramsey before landing in Denver, where she was eventually discovered by Columbia Records in 1975, a record label which issued two country-rock albums; 'Katy' (Columbia Records, 1976) was produced by Billy Sherrill (Thursday 5 November 1936 - Tuesday 4 August 2015), while 'Kissin' in the California Sun' (Columbia Records, 1978) featured members of The Allman Brothers.



Katy Moffatt's 'Katy' (Columbia Records, 1976) included the following tracks:

'Can't Help Lovin' That Man'
'I Can't Sleep'
'Ninety Miles an Hour (down a dead-end street)'
'Easy Come, Easy Go'
'Closer to My Melody'
'You Done Me Wrong'
'Another Magic Moment in Show Biz'
'Last Night I Fell in Love with You Again'
'I Can Almost See Houston From Here'
'She Calls Me Baby'



Katy Moffatt's 'Kissin' in the California Sun' (Columbia Records, 1978) included the following tracks:

'Kissin' in the California Sun'
'Um-Um-Um-Um-Um-Um'
'Didn't We Have Love'
'Up on the Roof'
'I'd Rather Leave While I'm in Love'
'Kansas City Morning'
'Saved By The Grace of Your Love'
'(Waitin' For) The Real Thing'
'Take Me Back to Texas'

Neither 'Katy' (Columbia Records, 1976) or 'Kissin' in the California Sun' (Columbia Records, 1978) broke Katy Moffatt commercially, so she made ends meet as a backup singer, working with the likes of Willie Nelson, Jimmy Buffett, Poco, John Prine, Tanya Tucker and Lynn Anderson (Friday 26 September 1947 - Thursday 30 July 2015), among others.

Coinciding with her recording at Columbia Records, Katy Moffatt opened for such performers as Charlie Daniels, Warren Zevon (Friday 24 January 1947 - Sunday 7 September 2003), Muddy Waters (Friday 4 April 1913 - Saturday 30 April 1983) and Steve Martin; at this time, Katy Moffatt also toured with Leo Kottke.

Katy Moffatt also worked with Willie Nelson and Andrew Gold (Thursday 2 August 1951 - Friday 3 June 2011), appeared with Poco and John Prine, and toured with Jerry Jeff Walker, J.D. Souther and The Allman Brothers.

In 1979, Katy Moffatt moved to California and found herself within a burgeoning community of like-minded country rockers and, after recording another unreleased album, whose three single releases earned her the Academy of Country Music (ACM) nomination, she appeared on the groundbreaking 'A Town South of Bakersfield' (Hightone Records, 1988) compilation album amid kindred spirits such as Dwight Yoakum and Rosie Flores.

Three new film offers had her cast as a singing performer in 'Hard Country' (with Michael Martin Murphey), 'Honeymoon in Vegas' and the Peter Bogdanovitch-directed 'The Thing Called Love'.



In 1979, Michael Martin Murphey saw the release of 'Peaks, Valleys, Honky Tonks & Alleys' (Epic Records, 1979); one of the included tracks was 'Backsliders Wine', which featured background vocals from Katy Moffatt.

In 1985, Katy Moffatt received an Academy of Country Music (ACM) nomination as 'Best New Female Vocalist.

In 1986, at The Kerrville Folk Festival, Katy Moffatt was one of a panel of judges for the 'New Folk Songwriters Contest', which also included Tom Russell and Pat Alger.  Following their meeting at the festival, Katy Moffatt and Tom Russell began writing together.

Janie Fricke recorded Katy Moffatt's 'Walking on the Moon' (co-written with Tom Russell) and included the track on 'Labor of Love' (Columbia Records, 1989).
