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 2017, 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 Bucky Jones, which he submitted to this site on Sunday 29 January 2017.

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

Gene Watson: 'A Way to Survive' (Step One Records, 1997) Gene Watson: 'Real Country Music' (Fourteen Carat Music, 2016)

'It is one of the highlights of my songwriting career that Gene Watson recorded 'Couldn't Love Have Picked a Better Place to Die', which Curly Putman (Thursday 20 November 1930 - Sunday 30 October 2016) and I co-wrote.

Gene Watson is one of my favourite singers.

His unique voice, in my opinion, stands on the same altar of country music as George Jones (Saturday 12 September 1931 - Friday 26 April 2013), Vern Gosdin (Sunday 5 August 1934 - Tuesday 28 April 2009) and Merle Haggard (Tuesday 6 April 1937 - Wednesday 6 April 2016).

Good as it gets!

Thank you, Gene, for recording our song'

Thank you, Bucky Jones, for your support of Gene Watson.
