Attend a Gene Watson concert and see why the balladeer is considered by many to be a “singer’s singer.” Watson’s understated straight-to-the-heart singing captivates. Watson was inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in 2002 and inducted into the inaugural class of Houston Music Hall of Fame in August 2013. His powerful voice and multi-octave range allows him to sing some of the most challenging songs with an ease that comes from pure, natural talent as well as from his many years performing.
His most famous hits include Love in the Hot Afternoon, Where Love Begins, Paper Rosie, Should I Go Home (or Should I Go Crazy), Nothing Sure Looked Good on You, and Farewell Party. “Today’s songwriters are not really writing the kind of songs fans of serious classic country are wanting. Traditional country is about life, heartaches, loves and family. I’ve got to relate to the words as something that either happened to me or happened to someone I know. It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around a song that’s simply about riding a tractor or just drinking beer with friends. I want more out of a song.
So I went back to some classic songwriters like Kris Kristofferson, Larry Gatlin, Bill Anderson, Keith Whitley, Dean Dillon, Hank Cochran and Dave Kirby – just to name a few of the greats,” noted Watson. On his most recent album Real.Country.Music.,the 72 years young Watson proves he’s the master of classic country. He remains defiantly country in the face of today’s more pop oriented offerings and is proud his legions of fans rely on him to keep traditional country music alive and well. Singer/songwriter Lee Allcorn opens the show.
