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 Ruby Lovett, which she submitted to this site on Thursday 13 July 2017.

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

'Although I've never met Gene, I certainly love his singing.

I would just say...he is one of my all-time favourites...the real deal'

Thank you, Ruby Lovett, for your support of Gene Watson.
