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 Paul Nelson, which he submitted to this site on Sunday 3 September 2017.

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

Gene Watson: 'The Good Ole Days' (Step One Records, 1996)

'Change Her Mind', which was written by myself, along with Danny 'Bear' Mayo (Monday 2 October 1950 - Saturday 2 October 1999) and Larry Boone is perhaps my favourite vocal of any song I had recorded, and it was by far my mother's favourite.

I still have 'Change Her Mind' on my iPod, which is only one of the two or three of my songs I have.

Gene Watson is one of greatest voices ever in country music'

Thank you, Paul Nelson, for your support of Gene Watson.
