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 during 2011, 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 Doug Stone, which he submitted to this site on Wednesday 6 April 2011.

About Doug Stone...

Doug Stone

Doug Stone was born Douglas Jackson Brooks on Tuesday 19 June 1956 in Newnan, Georgia and is known professionally as Doug Stone.

Doug Stone's mother, who was also a country music singer, taught him how to play guitar when he was five years old.

When he was seven years old, Doug Stone's mother placed him onstage to open for Loretta Lynn.  Doug Stone's mother and father later divorced; after the divorce, Doug moved to live with his father.

Doug Stone found additional work singing as a teenager - first at local skating rinks and then at local bars and later as one member of a short-lived trio.  In addition, Doug Stone and his father worked as mechanics to make ends meet.

Doug Stone's singing break came one night in 1987 as his band, Main Street, played a regular show at Newnan VFW Club in Newnan, Georgia.  Doug also adopted the stage name Doug Stone, to avoid confusion with both Garth Brooks and Kix Brooks (the latter formerly of Brooks & Dunn).
