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 during 2018, 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 Tim Culpepper, which he submitted to this site on Tuesday 17 April 2018.
Sean Brady would like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' to Tim Culpepper who made a special contribution to this unique part of this online 'celebration of a Lone Star Hero'.
This quote was submitted on Tuesday 17 April 2018.
'Gene Watson has been a main influence on me and my music since I was old enough to reach the knob on a record player or tape player, and ever since I could look over a dresser in the mirror to sing along with his music.
His stage presence and command of an audience to just sit and listen to him sing a burning country song or slow sad tear-jerking ballad has always been something that I've studied and tried to immulate.
He is so humble and one of the nicest guys you'd ever meet.
He is long overdue and should have already had his name listed in The Country Music Hall of Fame as someone who has shaped many artists' careers and is widely respected by his peers and fans of real, true, traditional country music.
Gene Watson will always be known as 'A Singer's Singer'!
Thank you, Tim Culpepper, for your support of Gene Watson.
