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 Erin Enderlin, which she submitted to this site on Monday 4 September 2017.

'Gene Watson's voice has that piercingly beautiful lonesome quality that can shatter a country music heart.

Gene Watson: 'Reflections' (Capitol Records, 1978) Gene Watson: 'A Taste of The Truth' (Shanachie Records, 2009)

From 'Farewell Party', which was written by Lawton Williams (Monday 24 July 1922 - Thursday 26 July 2007) to 'Use Me Again', which was written by Billy Lawson, Curly Putman (Thursday 20 November 1930 - Sunday 30 October 2016) and Dale Dodson, you won't find a better representation of the genre
'.

Thank you, Erin Enderlin, for your support of Gene Watson.
