Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Tommy Alverson who has made a special contribution to a unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.
This quote was submitted on Tuesday 10 October 2006.
'Sean, I feel honoured you would ask me to do this. Thank you very much. Here goes: As an artist in Texas, I cut my teeth on 'Fourteen Carat Mind' (played it every night), 'Farewell Party' and 'Love In The Hot Afternoon'.
When I heard 'At Last', it was the icing on the cake. Gene is one of those singers when you hear him you know immediately who it is.
I got to play a show with Gene in Mineral Wells, Texas about two years ago and he's still as strong as ever.
What a voice! God Bless Gene Watson!'
Thank you, Tommy Alverson, for your support of Gene Watson.
