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 2013, 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 Bert Colwell, which he submitted to this site on Thursday 31 January 2013.

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

Gene Watson: 'At Last' (Warner Bros. Records, 1991)

'It was such an honour to have Gene record 'You Can't Take It With You When You Go', which I co-wrote with Larry Cordle and Larry Shell, and which Gene recorded in 1991.

Gene is absolutely the best singer out there'.

Thank you, Bert Colwell, for your support of Gene Watson.

Bert Colwell's 'You Can't Take It With You When You Go', which was co-written with Larry Cordle and Larry Shell, was recorded twice in 1991, by Gene Watson and Ricky Skaggs respectively.
