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 Tony Mullins, which he submitted to this site on Sunday 16 July 2017.

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

Gene Watson recorded my song, 'Drivin' Me Sane' (co-written with Curt Ryle), and included the track on 'From The Heart' RMG Records, 2001).

Gene Watson: 'From The Heart' (RMG Records, 2001)

Talk about real country music...Gene Watson is country music.

When I heard Gene was going to record 'Drivin' Me Sane', I could not believe it.

One of the best country music singers...really singing one of my songs was a shock.

That day made me one happy camper and I'm still smiling today.

Thanks, Gene!

Thank you, Tony Mullins, for your support of Gene Watson.
